The Cosmonaut is a minimal and elegant stylus for touch screen devices, like the iPad. Unlike most styli, which are designed to look and feel like a pen, the Cosmonaut was designed to feel like a dry erase marker, because the experience of drawing on an tablet most closely mirrors the experience of drawing on a whiteboard. The Cosmonaut is great for doodling, sketching, and writing on any touch screen device. The shaft has a comfortable rubber grip that feels great to hold for people of all ages, including children and the elderly. The tip is responsive and glides effortlessly over the glass screen. The Cosmonaut will work on nearly any capacitive touch screen device, including the iPad and Kindle Fire. It does not require special software; it will work wherever your finger works. Designed and manufactured in America.
