Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) has been awarded a new patent by USPTO pertaining to a new stylus that can capture all types of handwritings regardless of surface of use, reports TechCrunch. It can also be used with a wide array of nibs. The new patented stylus modular can be used to write on paper, as well as whiteboards and iPad’s capacitive touchscreen.
Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL)’s new stylus comes with accelerometers as well as motion sensors and can be used to track movement and gets activated by being picked up and pressed to a paper. It also comes with a holster for better power efficiency. Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL)’s new gadget reportedly transmits data in real time or through chunks of time intervals; seen as one of the ways of preserving power.
Apple on the patent application outlined how the stylus Modular can be used to capture handwriting accurately regardless of the pen being used on a table, against the wall or even on the air. These capabilities are made possible by the use of onboard 3D motion sensors. The pen can also be used to reflect writing in real time or in separate displays; this is especially beneficial when it is being used in a classroom setting. The stylus Modular can also be used as a central pool for real-time notes in a small group meeting.
The patent applications show how the stylus can be used with different nibs or pens to write in different materials. Users will be able to use it with ink in notebooks as well as with graphite for pencil drawings or markers on the whiteboard. Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL)’s stylus can also be used as a traditional stylus with devices like the iPad and an iPhone with the use of a capacitive nib.
