The Pencil 53 may not actually be made of gold, but the Pencil 53 stylus does indeed set somewhat of a gold standard in stylus usability and technology. Made in brushed anodized aluminium, at least it shines like gold. The Pencil by FiftyThree is a Bluetooth stylus that works just like any stylus on any touch-screen and with any app. But pair it with your iPad (from iPad 3 and above), launch the Paper53 app or any of the other compatible apps, and the advanced functions comes to life:
- Pressure sensitivity - no settings required, just works no matter what your angle is (Pencil53 only)
- Palm rejection - works with most apps that support it
- Erase - just turn it over and use the eraser
- Blend - like oil painting, smooth your edges using your finger
Bluetooth pairing is as easy as pressing the tip to your screen, no pairing procedure necessary, and with USB charging and a battery that'll last you up to a month without the need for recharging, this stylus really has it all.
