FiftyThree, the makers of the Bluetooth-connected iPad stylus Pencil, has commenced sales in the UK, Germany and France from today. Previously, the only way to get your hands on the product was to order directly from the US, likely being hit by import fees and the like. Finally, the company has listened to feedback and the general cries for help and has launched sales in respective markets within Europe.

Hands-on: Best stylus pens of 2014!

Just before #CESlive ended, I ran back and took a look at all the stylus pens that were being shown off on the show floor. There's weren't any big new announcements, but I did get to go hands on with a lot of the most recent updates. I have to say, the improvements we're seeing are remarkable. Instead of dull and drab, we're getting sexy and stylish, instead of big plastic disks, we're getting fine points, instead of rubber nibs, we're getting interchangeable brushes, and instead of dumb, dead pens, we're getting Bluetooth 4.0 LE-based pressure sensitivity and palm rejection. And 2014 has only just begun!

Adonit shows off the new Jot Touch stylus at Macworld|iWorld 2013

Adonit was one of the first to launch a pressure sensitive Bluetooth stylus for the iPad back in July of last year. That original Jot Touch had quite a lot to like about it, including Adonit's trademark mechanical pencil-style construction and clear capacitive disk, but the new one takes it to the next level. Raphael Gomez of Adonit gave us the story at Macworld|iWorld 2013

Griffin draws at a distance with Crayola Light Marker for iPad

iPads are great for kids -- intuitive, interactive, and engaging -- and Griffin continues to expand the possibilities, and the fun, with peripherals like the Crayola Light Marker. With a large crayon stylus that's easy to grip and easy to use, you pair with Griffin's free app and then paint and play to your heart's content with a variety of modes and tools.

It's meant to use in the dark and at a distance, almost like a pointer driven light show. The crayon sends light to your iPad camera, and the camera interprets that and makes it into magic. Check out their CES 2013, and if you have kids, or just like drawing in the dark, let me know what you think.

Ten One Design shows off the Pogo Connect Bluetooth 4.0 pressure-sensitive stylus

Ten One Design released their Pogo Connect Bluetooth 4.0 pressure sensitive stylus before CES 2013 -- and we have a full review on the way -- but they still showed up to show it off at the show. (Isn't English fun?)

Thanks to BT 4.0's low energy requirement and fast connection ability, the Pogo Connect gets found and setup by apps that support it nearly instantly, and a single battery can power it through weeks and weeks of stylus fun.

So, rather than build in a digitizer like Samsung did with the Galaxy Note series or Wacom does with their device, Apple has left the iPhone minimal for those who don't need more, and let smart people make smart accessories for those that do. Pressure sensitivity gets offloaded from the tablet to the stylus.

As an artist, and someone who used Wacom for a long time in the design world, I'm all over this. Anyone else?

AluPen Pro stylus for iPad review

I love hybrid stylus pens like the AlluPen Pro from Just Mobile. I use traditional ink pens all the time, and it's so much more convenient to have capacitive stylus tip available at the same time. I sometimes find them to be heavier than single-purpose pens or styluses, but the simple utility makes them worth it. The AlluPen Pro is also extremely well balanced, which helps enormously.
