- Sensu uses patent pending technology to allow you use as an artist brush on your iPad (or other capacitive device). Draw, paint, navigate. That is all it does, and it does great.
- Sensu is two very useful tools in one. A brush and a stylus for capacitive devices like the iPad and iPhone.
- This stylus is great for sketching and writing or as a general navigation tool.
- Grasp Sensu near the nib section and pull it out of the protective cap. You will reveal the capacitive bristles of the artist brush. Insert the rubber stylus into the cap and the cap becomes a handle for your brush.

I received this brush for Christmas and it was a revelation. Even though I have virtually no real-life painting experience, using the brush was so natural and easy. Far better than any stylus I've ever used. Unlike some of the reviews here, just the lightest of touches would create exactly what I wanted. I already owned several good painting apps but feeling fully inspired I purchased the recommended ProCreate and never looked back.
It was the perfect marriage of tools and software....for about 2 weeks.
After using for the brush for up to an hour or so per day for those 2 weeks it became completely unresponsive without using extreme force. You could see that the bristles were changing colors from top to bottom as though some sort of capacative coating was being worn off. Searching the web I was able to find at least one user with a similar experience. My emails to the company were never responded to.
On the day I got it this was a 5+ star product. After a couple of weeks it became a 1. I'm going to split the difference with a 3 and hope that maybe I just got a bum brush.
Edit: I've added a couple of photos to the gallery to show the difference between a brand new brush and the brush that stopped working.
My most bitter disappointment was the PenGo BrushPen. When I heard rumors of its development I was excited by the idea: there was no law that said that a capacitive stylus had to be a little rubber nub. And the PenGo brush seemed to have all that was needed to replicate the action of a brush on canvas. The reality was that the bristles on the brush in the PenGo didn't feel like a brush so much as a mushy rubber nib and the bristles continually separated from the rest of the brush because the were pushed back by the action of putting the cap on the pen.
And so it was with a mixture of excitement and trepidation that I plunked my forty bucks down for the Princeton Art & Brush Sensu Capacitive Artist Brush. From the look of it there was great promise.
The brush is in two parts. One an empty metal cover that hides e brush tip and serves as the body of the traditional nib ended metal tube that makes up most of the styli in the world.Read more ›
Not sure how to get in touch with the manufacturer since it's just over a month and Amazon won't take it back. Hopefully they will read this review and contact us so we can get it fixed or exchanged. Will update if this happens.
Unfortunately, sometimes artists aren't the most technically adept.
Whatever this "infused hair technology" the manufacturers are using isn't working. I've had my Sensu since Feb 26, 2013 and it's already losing its capacitive ability. I've used it for about 2 hours a day since I've had it--not unreasonable for a digital painting. Now, it skips brushstrokes and I have to press harder on the screen to get it to work.
I'm so sad about this, too, because I LOVE the design. I've contacted their support, as they do have a 90-day guarantee. I'd be happy if I could just find a way to restore the capacitive ability. I guess if nothing else, it's still a brush...I could use it to do actual watercolor paintings, but that's not what I paid $40 for. Heck, a real red sable brush would be cheaper than that!
I hope the manufacturers take note of these reviews and work on the issue for the next version. I think if they could alternate some capacitive thread in with the hair of the brush, it would solve the problem. As it is, in another week or so it's going to be useless.
