Styluses are devices that allow users to input handwritten text or drawings into a computer or a mobile device. These are typically pen-shaped but vary depending on the intended use.


Technology for styluses and writing has come a long way from its humble beginnings, which is actually more than a hundred years ago! The very first patented design for an electrical stylus was all the way back in 1888 by Elisha Gray. Gray was previously known for his contributions to the development of the telephone, which makes him the father of not just styluses, but also smartphones, if you think about it. That said, it wasn’t until 1950 when Tom Dimond invented the first electronic tablet, the Stylator. It was the first electronic writing device with software that recognized handwritten input in real-time. Handwriting technology was then exclusively for computers until 1989 when the first portable electronic writing device was released: the GRiDPad 1910. Apple decided to get in on the fun with the Newton in 1993. Sadly, it was a commercial and critical flop, but it brought a silver lining in the form of Steve Jobs retaking the helm as Apple’s CEO. Palm, Inc. capitalized on Newton’s flop and introduced the Palm Pilot in 1996, becoming a commercial success and spurring a long line of similar devices from the likes of HP (Hewlett-Packard) and Dell. Samsung, one of the biggest smartphone producers today, released its first touchscreen smartphone in 2001, and Apple rejoined the fray with the first iPhone in 2007. Since then, touchscreen and stylus technology have found multiple applications in design and even gaming! Whether it’s for the computer or for mobile devices (like the ones on this list), you’re sure to find a pen that suits your style-us.
