A stylus is a pen-like tool that people use to point, click, and sign and draw on touch screens and electronic devices of all kinds. To those a little more curious, the following is what you need to know about what the touch screen stylus made of?

How is a Pen with Stylus?

Often a stylus is referred to as a stylus pen, because it is kept as a pen and, in the case of an active stylus, is often used just like one. The word “stylus pen,” however, can also refer to a passive / capacitive stylus integrating a ballpoint or other ink pen into its form.

Occasionally the stylus is on the opposite end of the ink pen tube,

Types of stylus

Today’s stylus is either “active” or “passive” (also known as capacitive) made of rubber or conductive foam. The difference here between the two is:

You can rest your palm on the screen without causing interference (called “palm rejection” of this feature). Thanks to the internal electronic components, an active stylus is typically larger than a passive stylus.

Passive / Passive Stylus

types of stylusMuch like the active stylus, with a passive stylus (also called a capacitive stylus) you can tap or write directly on a tablet. Yet unlike an active stylus, the passive / capacitive stylus has no sensitivity to the touch or electronic components. There is no contact between the device and the stylus.

A passive / capacitive stylus can actually bear the electrical load from your finger to the device just as your finger would. For any device that fits with your palm, you can use a passive / capacitive stylus.

Benefits of using a Pen Stylus

A stylus pen is one that can be used on devices, for those of you who do not know. A stylus pen comes with a touch screen edge, so you can manipulate interface elements accurately on your computer, tablet or other electronics.

This makes for precision

Let us just face it. If you use your finger to write on your mobile screen, not everyone’s handwriting is distinguishable. If you are writing a stylus, you are sure everybody can understand what you have written.

It breeds pace

It creates speed, in addition to the accuracy. You can handwrite your details right on your electronics using a stylus pen, which is a faster option than typing for most people.

It protects the computers

Touching the devices continually moves toxic oils on top of the panels. Using a pen lets the electronic computer extend its life.
