oStylus for touch screens doesn't block your view

A swiveling donut-shaped tip lets you hold the oStylus at an angle you like, and the hole in the middle of the tip allows you to see what you are drawing.

The oStylus is a stylus for capacitive touch screens. At first glance, it looks more like something your dentist would use, but it's actually quite a cleverly designed contraption.

A swiveling donut-shaped tip lets you hold the oStylus at an angle you like, and the hole in the middle of the tip allows you to see what you are drawing. To prevent scratches on your screen, the tip has a vinyl film so the metal doesn't touch your device's glass. Watch the demonstration video below to see how it works.

Creator Andrew Goss is shipping the product internationally from Canada. The oStylus costs $37.50 before freight, and a signed, limited-edition $75 version is also available. Don't want to pay so much for a capacitive stylus? Well, you can always use a sausage . Just remember to eat a hole first so you can see what you are drawing.
