Flip is an Intuitive Stylus that Uses the Power of Magnets

Many gadgets on the market today claim to be intuitive to use. While this may be true after a lot of practice, they aren’t actually intuitive from the start. However, there is one device that works just like you’d expect: Flip.

Flip is a smart stylus that works just like a real pencil. Everything from the shape to the function will remind you of a trusty #2 Dixon Ticonderoga yet replaces many of the utensils on your desk.

Taking the term “intuitive” literally, Flip allows you to write and draw on your smartphone or tablet with ease. When it’s time to erase, simply flip the stylus over to use the opposite end as an eraser, just like a real pencil.

Complete with a magnetic construction, you can easily swap the interchangeable tips to finish any piece of work. Flip comes with a TruGlide mesh tip for notes, drawing, and sketching; an artist brush tip which is complete with conductive fibers for painting with a natural brush stroke; and a precision cross tip which is a 2mm flex rod with conductive plastic for finer details.

Flip

Using some very clever technology, Flip is able to detect and reject your palm on the screen as you work. This feature, while seemingly small, is actually a big feat. When we write and draw, we naturally rest our hands on the paper or desk. Flip takes this into account and is able to reject your hand’s contact so you can carry on working seamlessly. Did I mention Flip is intuitive?

Flip also has the ability to hover and zoom in on your selected part of the screen thanks to the built-in functionality. Simply hover the stylus, press the button, and the screen will zoom so you can see more details. Additionally, Flip can automatically dim between your note taking to help save power and prevent you from having to re-enter your passcode. This feature also brings back the feeling of pen and paper as you can pick up right where you left off.

Flip

Amazingly, Flip achieves all of this without the use of a battery or a Bluetooth connection. Instead, Flip is powered by magnets and uses an exact yet invisible magnetic field that is always on and always ready. The patented software algorithms are able to detect the precise position of Flip each time you use it.

Flip

Working with a huge variety of apps on iOS devices, with many more integrations to come, Flip is being funding via Kickstarter with tenacity. Smashing the original goal and now well over $30k, the campaign doesn’t end until November 14th. But, to get Flip with the Note Taker tip for just $30, you’ll need to act fast as limited remain. To get all three interchangeable tips along with a carrying bag you need a donation of just $60.

With such detail, what projects could you accomplish on your tablet with Flip?
