A Pen That Tries To Forget It's Really a Stylus

The Jot is a bastardized iPad stylus that seems to think it's some kind of high-born pen. It wears all the trappings of a simple yet elegant ballpoint pen, but it can't deny what it is.

The stylus is a Kickstarter project created by designer Adonit. Its ball point rests inside what Adonit calls a precision disc that allows for more accuracy on the iPad's screen. So should you feel so inclined, you can use it to sign PDF's and take notes with a little bit of style.

It's still a bastard, though. A halfbreed. Surely the result of a lordly pen and some low-born stylus meeting. But what can I say? I still have a soft spot in my heart for it. [Kickstarter]
