Something for the old gangArt D. Rector (3164 pencils) | Mon, 2013-08-05 21:38
Yo people - what's up? Thought some of you folks might appreciate this Kickstarter project - the G-stick. It's basically a regular mouse crammed into a pen that's about as thick as a fat sharpie with a roller ball on the end. Looks like it would be a great thing for any graphic artist (hey - they got my money). Anyway, they tried to get it "kickstarted" and it fell thru the first time around. I had pledged $38 for one of these things - they're supposed to retail for $70 in the store. Anyway, the first deal fell thru - they missed their target by a few thousand, so they cancelled everything and started over. That means all the low end sponsor offers are open again. I re-upped for $25 this time (sweet - 33% savings!)
Anyway - if you hate your mouse and want something more like a pen - it looks cool to me (they have videos on youtube you can check). The advantage it has over tablets is you're not tied to the mirror-image trackpad deal. It works like a mouse - you can lift and roll and scoot around to "cheat" your movements just like a mouse (which you can't do on tablets - that's why I never use mine), and it gives you the natural pen feel. Don't know why nobody made one before.
Anywho - if you're interested...
PS: No it's not me - I'm in Florida. :-)
