Pilot has been making stationaries for a very long time and they are embarking on making digital pens that are compatible with WACOM displays. The Dr. Grip Digital are a series of new pens which will be released next year. They come in four different colors and come with a bunch of feathers that will do the job, such as Hard, Soft, Brush, and Felt. When you click on the top of the pen, the tip comes back inward, and when you click again, the tip sticks out. This is the first time that a dedicated EMR stylus has looked like a real pen.
Most digital pens are made from inexpensive plastic and don’t have a lot of grip. The new Pilot pen is totally different. They have a soft grip where you hold the pen and underneath is a series of color gradients. The stylus tips will be sold separately, for those of you who want to swap tips on the fly. If you don’t want to have to do this, you can purchase a stylus with each type of tip.
There is no release date or cost.
