The Faraday Website and Caduceus Stylus is Back!

I had a number of contacts from readers about the links to the Faraday Caduceus Stylus not working, and searches for its existence leading to a disappearing website. Good news, contact with the developer and creator of the Faraday styluses found that a change to a new domain and website was the cause of the temporary disappearance.

The Faraday Stylus website is back up and running with the styluses available for purchase!

If you are not familiar with what the Faraday styluses are they are handmade styluses with mesh tips for capacitive devices such as the iPad, or iPhone. One of the most unique features of the Faraday Caduceus stylus is its incredibly light weight, flexible shaft and connectivity, allowing it to be adaptable for a wide range of client needs.  The Caduceus Stylus is one of few of its kind.

Different tips can be interchanged for the Faraday styluses. My favorite tip is the SALT tip, a very sensitive mesh tip that can make contact at different angles.

The Caduceus is one of a kind stylus, resulting in a bit of a panic when the website disappeared. What I learned from contact with the maker, is each stylus is  hand made. The maker/developers website also mentions he will work directly with anyone who needs to try and customize or design a new stylus to fit their needs!

The new Faraday website can be found at: Faraday Stylus (http://fd-stylus.com/wordpress/). Contact information is also available on the website if you have a special need.

So welcome back Faraday Styluses! For OT’s looking for adaptable tools for access, we are happy you are back! Updates to links on the device lists will be forth coming!
