[NTLK] new stylus concepts by Apple?

what surprises me isn't that Apple has stylus patents like this, but that it includes optical positioning, but no pressure sensitivity.

which brings me to my project - a pressure sensitive stylus for iPad and Android tablets (see how i did that? wasn't that smooth? thread "hijacking" at its best...)

my stylus is on Kickstarter, and i'm still about $4,000 short of my goal with a week to go. any help, donations or links would be appreciated.

now, back to the original thread.
