Most iPad styluses are blunt-tipped and over-priced. Make your own custom stylus with parts from around your workshop for free.
At technology blog RasterWeb they were searching for a DIY iPad stylus solution. After coming across the tutorial video put out by Collin Cunningham at MAKE Magazine they modified the design a bit and came up with the pen you see above–a Pilot G2 with a cleaner wire wrap than you’ll find on the Cunningham model. You’ll need a pen to hack apart, some conductive foam, a bit of copper wire, and a drill. If you don’t have any conductive foam left over from the packaging of your latest electronics project, hit up a local electronics repair store and ask if you can have a few pieces.
