July 1, 2014— The great thing about the technology we have today is that each gadget uniquely represents its user’s individuality through its features, apps and countless customization options. iPads are a shining example. But then, you had to use the bulky, wide-tipped stylus that leaves so much to be desired in terms of accuracy and maneuverability. For a long time, iPad users have been looking for a way to sketch, write, take notes, and draw on the iPad like one does using pen and paper. For far too long, special plug-ins and apps are needed to create elegant, accurate and refined effects on a stylus.
Michael Majid of Precision Touch comes out with a solution to this by creating the only active stylus with one of the smallest tips at 2mm—the Dart. To finally take it from the drawing board to the hands of every iPad user, Michael and his team have recently launched a Kickstarter campaign to raise $10,000 from June 20 to July 20. The crowdfunding campaign aims to cover finalizing the design and pushing the Dart to manufacturing, as well as making it available for everyone.
The Dart is an ergonomically designed active stylus with a specially made digital circuitry that allows users to simulate the fingers on an iPad screen. It features an innovation unlike most iPad stylus in the market with its uniquely hardened silicone tip which does not collapse or distort, and yet soft enough to not scratch the touch screen surface. Its body is sleek enough to be carried around like a pen and allows anyone to write, sketch or draw seamlessly, allowing less chance for errors and much greater accuracy. Michael adds, “The Dart comes in a beautiful black matte finish for fingerprint resistance along with subtle but defined tail fins at the top cap switch for added balance and proper ergonomic weight distribution. This allows the Stylus to naturally rest in your hand providing you with a familiar feel.”
The Dart is compatible with all iPad versions, iPad Air, iPad Mini, and iPad Mini Retina. It also works well with all applications, with no need to download any additional software or plug-ins, or even Bluetooth pairings. “[The Dart] is application agnostic. Our engineers created a revolutionary circuit board and firmware which means that the Dart can be used on virtually any application without any special setup or plugins,” Michael continues. It is designed to create fine, delicate lines, simulate individual handwriting, and create accurate sketches and drawings. The Dart is ideal for artists, designers, doctors, engineers, architects, teachers, lawyers, students, and basically anyone. “We are happy to say that the Dart stylus is the culmination of what most people have been wanting in a fine-tip stylus,” Michael says.
Through the crowdfunding campaign, Precision Touch can move on with all of the needed electric components and set its sights on manufacturing the Dart. In return, backers can get their own Darts that come with three replaceable tips, two AAA batteries and a user’s manual. Other perks from the campaign include Precision Touch’s 3-pack ReGear iPad Screen Protectors, Luxe Ultra-Premium carbon fiber stylus, custom leather pouch for the Dart, and Precision Touch iPad Carrying Case with built-in Dart holder. High-level backers can also fly for free to Los Angeles and stay for two nights at the Hyatt Los Angeles Gateway Hotel to meet with Precision Touch designers.
