More and more Android and Windows tablets are advertising their styluses. They’re popular iPad accessories, too. But not all styluses are equal. The technology built into your device’s touch screen will control what kind of styluses you can use.
A stylus for a resistive screen is the easiest to make - any plastic stick will work.
0000 grade steel wool placed around a metal pen will work fine in android and ipad, screens, the only problem i had the first time is i put the vinyl tape to close to the end, and it left sticky residue on the screen,so i made longer strands and taped it with different tape higher.
Tsk, guys. The word "stylus" is taken directly from the Latin (and it meant exactly the same thing to the Romans even though they wrote on wax) and the plural is "stylii." Yeah, I know, picky picky picky.
what about the nvidia pen?
I think it's a Wacom one. Not sure, though.
