LYNKtec, the makers of the microfiber TruGlide stylus is back with another stylus. Called the TruGlide Apex, it’s actually a project that’s seeking funders at Kickstarter. We’ve covered a lot of fine point stylus here but what’s unique about this one is that it’s using a hardened rubber tip that’s 2.4mm in size. Most rubber nibs out there tend to be bigger at 6.0mm and it does not give you precision.
The TruGlide Apex uses electronic circuitry to simulate a finger which will allow the device to register a touch. This special tip makes it possible to use this stylus across all apps and you don’t need to pair it via Bluetooth. Like all rubber tips, it’s not as durable as others but there’s replacement nibs in case you need them.
The stylus is also built with quality in mind where the stylus body is made of metal with a brushed silver coating. Currently the stylus will work on the iPad 2/3/4 and the iPad Mini. It does not work on the iPhone and other devices though as the touch screen circuitry varies for other manufacturers.
The TruGlide Apex is powered by a single AAAA battery an is estimated to be able to last 20 hours for the final product. You just turn it on or off by turning the top of the stylus body.
As of time of writing, this project is successfully funded but you can still get one by pledging $39 or more before November 10 2013. Find out more from the Kickstarter page. Here’s a video demo of this stylus below.
