Today I received Pencil by 53. It’s incredibly comfortable to sketch with. Compared to the 10 other styluses I’ve used this one has the best feel. I did find two little issues, one with the software and one with the hardware/software.
“In the two years since Paper for iPad launched, creator FiftyThree has witnessed dozens if not hundreds of styluses compete for the crown of “best stylus.” Today, the company has finally thrown its hat in the ring with Pencil, a Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) stylus for tablets. FiftyThree’s first hardware device ships today in two models: walnut hardwood, for $59.95, and aluminum “graphite,” for $49.95.”
I really enjoy the Wacom Intuos Creative Stylus, but I think this one will be great create for sketching, doodling and faster, but artistic stuff. It has a very different form factor (carpenter's pencil vs a pen) so I think I'll be happy to have both in my tool set.
Foresight.js gives webpages the ability to tell if the user's device is capable of viewing high-resolution images (such as the 3rd generation iPad) before the image is requested from the server. Additionally, it judges if the user's device currently has a fast enough network connection for high-resolution images. Depending on device display and network connectivity, foresight.js will request the appropriate image for the webpage.
