This passive stylus has different advantages it enables writing , editing adding signatures, navigation and other applictions at very low cost. I haved read somewhere that touchscreens aredesigned in such a way that they accept the small signal of stylus and reject the long or big signal of hand.

Yes, and I think the OEMs will like the cost savings, too, Greg.

I really like the capability of writing on the touchscreen with a standard No. 2 pencil.  This will increase data input options and improve user-friendliness.

Definitely true, naperlou. The largest volumes are, of course, on the consumer side, but there's no reason this can't serve in industrial applications right now.

Chuck, this brings interactivity to a whole new price point.  I can see it being used for automation and control applications as well.  I like the ability to reject large area touches that cannot be valid input.
