The Jot Touch 4’s palm rejection technology promises to make creating art on Apple’s tablet as natural as using pen and paper.
If you've ever tried creating art on an iPad before, you'll have probably found yourself having to hold your hand in an awkward position. Because of the iPad’s sensitivity to any accidental touch made by your hands, you’re faced with an unpleasant choice: either draw in an unnatural position, or end up with errant marks and smudges.
A new stylus from Adonit, though, promises an end to all of that.
The Jot Touch 4's palm rejection technology enables you to create art in a totally natural position, with the hand actually resting on the tablet. And here's the clever bit: the iPad will ONLY record the Jot's actions.
Combining this palm rejection technology with superior pressure sensitivity and the Jot's patented precision tip means that creating art on the iPad can be a totally natural experience, enabling you to fully unleash your creativity.
"We set out to create a natural and intuitive drawing experience for the iPad," explains Kris Perpich, CXO at Adonit. "Art is about expressive freedom, and artists shouldn’t feel restricted by their tools. The new Jot Touch stylus gives artists that freedom."
The Jot Touch 4 is compatible with over a dozen drawing and note-taking apps, and is also the first iPad stylus with 2,048 levels of pressure sensitivity, giving artists easy, natural control over line width.
Two shortcut buttons allow users to get to tools such as undo and colour changes quickly, and with Bluetooth 4.0 compatibility, Jot Touch lasts up to a month on a single charge with normal use.
By creatives, for creatives
Adonit believes the release of the Jot Touch 4 means drawing on the iPad now rivals traditional pen and paper as a creative option; a testimony to the company’s approach of ‘by creatives, for creatives’.
"Most of the Adonit team consists of artists and other creative professionals, and we all crave the freedom to create at any time and anywhere," says Perpich. "We think the Jot Touch 4 is the closest thing to a pen and paper so far, not just for professional designers, but for anyone with a creative urge."
The Jot Touch is available to buy from today for $89.99 on both Amazon and Adonit’s own website.
