The Limitless Stylus

An inquiry about a finger stylus for a child with CP prompted my search for what type of styluses might be available at the current time. Like apps, tools for mobile devices are being developed and also go off the market constantly.

Although my search for a finger stylus yield minimal results, a comment from developer and engineer Paul Tudisco, shared his new stylus, The Limitless Stylus. A project for a real need with a client and engineering students produced this stylus. It appears to be still in the development stage.

Here are some images and a media clip on The Limitless Stylus prototype. It is projected to be available in different sizes (toddler 1-8; children 8-13, adult 14+, has replaceable tips ( fabulous!) and colored straps.

For more information check out The Limitless Stylus website. This looks like a great design! I hope to be able to working with the stylus. Until then, I am thinking about how to macgyver my own adaptive finger stylus!

Any other ideas until production occurs?
