Are you a sucker for a good stylus? Or is your stylus a sucker?

octopus-like-stylus

In the earlier days of PDAs and other small handheld devices, everything had a stylus and everything had a silo to hold it when you weren’t using it.  Most tablets and smartphones today don’t come with a stylus, and you’re left trying to find a way to keep up with it if you use one.  Allputer is offering a stylus that sticks to your device.  The Octopus-Like Sucker Stylus and Ballpen has a row of small suction cups along the barrel that you use for  sticking your stylus to your device.  Allputer has a long list of compatible devices; I assume they are listing devices that have capacitive screens – otherwise, I’d assume that the stickers would stick to anything with a slick, non-porous surface.  You can pop off the stylus end to find a ballpoint pen.  I would assume this stylus isn’t for people with trypophobia.  (Google it, but be prepared to be grossed out!)  It’s available in black, red, or white for $11.95.
