I am forever on the search for a perfect multi-pen stylus combination, and the Stylex 3-in-1 Writing Tool, a current Kickstarter project by Dexterous, may be the one of my dreams. The Stylex 3-in-1 writing tool combines a stylus, a ball point pen, and a 0.5mm mechanical pencil into a single pen, allowing the user to maintain a constant writing form no matter what media you are using. I love the idea of the pen-stylus combination, but most of the ones on the market today make the stylus look like an afterthought and not a well thought-out design feature.

The Stylex project is still actively seeking funding until February 17, 2013, and is slated for delivery in April 2013. There are actually three versions of this pen: the D1 with only a stylus ($10 pledge), D2 2-in-1 with a stylus and pen ($25), and the Stylex 3-in-1 with stylus, pen, and pencil ($60).
