Griffin's Glowing iPad Stylus Lets Kids Draw Without Banging Up the Screen

Children are drawn to the iPad like flies to honey, but children are also notoriously bad at taking care of their toys. And if the thought of a young'n bashing away at your tablet's display with a pen leaves you anxious, Griffin's got you covered with a glowing stylus that lets them draw in mid-air.

You'd assume that such a feat involves magic, sorcery, or witchcraft, but the iPad Crayola light marker works a lot like the PlayStation Move controller. Its glowing tip is detected and tracked by the iPad's front-facing camera, letting it work with various artistic activities in an included Crayola app. That of course means it's only compatible with iPad models featuring a camera up front, but for $30 it also sounds like a cheap insurance policy for your tablet's display.
