Cosmonaut: My stylus is bigger than your stylus
You're secure in your geekhood, so why not use a Cosmonaut stylus? The wide-grip stylus for touch screens is more substantial than the competition.
The overall movement in technology is to slim things down, make them dainty, make them portable, and create ever smaller versions of hardware. Studio Neat is bucking the trend with the $25 Cosmonaut wide-grip stylus.
The Cosmonaut is proudly low-fidelity. It's meant to feel like a dry erase marker rather than a fine-point pen. It has a rubber grip and will work on just about any capacitive touch-screen device.
So why would you want a wide-grip stylus? I can think of several reasons. Maybe you want to recapture the feeling of being 2 years old and holding a crayon in your tiny hand.
Perhaps you let your young 'uns loose on your iPad and want to give them a stylus they can hang onto. Maybe you just want to add another tool to your tablet artist arsenal. It could be you're motivated to show it off to your friends. "Hey, check out my honking huge stylus!"
Whatever your reasoning, the Cosmonaut will happily step up and fill that niche of cigar-sized styli.
