While there are many third-party capacitive pens for the iPad on the market, none are as precise as pressure-sensitive models like the ones Samsung Galaxy Note aficionados have enjoyed for some time. Enter the Pogo Connect, which is described as the world’s first pressure-sensitive Bluetooth 4.0 iPad stylus. Brought to you by Ten One Design, the Pogo Connect was originally codenamed “Project Blue Tiger” back in March. The benefits of Bluetooth seem to be key here, as it offers full pressure sensitivity thanks to a “Crescendo Sensor” technology that works at multiple angles and without calibration. You also get palm rejection capabilities so the page doesn’t get smudged from your hand resting on the surface. The pen has a removable magnetic tip, leaving room for interchangeable tips in the future.
There’s also an LED status light, an integrated radio transmitter to let you know its location in case you lose it, and it runs on a single AAA battery. Be aware that the Connect is only compatible with around 16 apps for now — they include Brushes, SketchBook Pro, Paper by FiftyThree, and PDFPen — but Ten One hopes to add to the list over time. You can pre-order one now for $79.95, and if you’re one of the first 2,000 to do so, you’ll get a special edition pen with a laser-engraved tiger. Those intrigued can get a peek at the company’s promo video as well as the PR after the break.
