As devices become ever-more controllable via touch, we’re starting to see an increasing number of innovative input devices. The latest in this lineage is Jot Touch, a precision stylus from adonit that is the first to offer pressure sensitivity. The pen has a transparent disk on its tip that mimics the touch of a finger, while adding the benefit of not hiding what is being touched. Also of note are several shortcut buttons, Bluetooth connectivity and USB recharging. All very nifty but it’s the pressure sensitivity that sets this stylus apart. Of course, apps have to support this functionality but with Procreate, Sketchbook Pro, ArtRage, DeepSketch and Animation Desk on the list (hello, Adobe!), there’s something for everyone. The price? A non-trivial $99.99.
