JAJA stylus, the pressure sensitive stylus for iPad

Another Kickstarter project is bringing a unique product to market: the JaJa Stylus from HEX3. This is the first world’s pressure sensitive stylus for iPad.

According to the company HEX3, the JaJa Stylus is the first to support up to 1,024 levels of sensitivity (four times the precision of competing devices) and uses high frequency sound to communicate with the iPad. The greater precision gives artists the ability to make more natural looking brush strokes and, says HEX3, gives them “more intuitive control.”

It’s a pretty long stylus at 5.75 inches, with a gunmetal-gray barrel interrupted by a comfortable diamond-shaped rubber grip area. Pop off the clip-on cap (which then pops onto the back) and you see a narrow tip ending in a plastic disc, just like on Adonit’s styli. The grip area has two buttons: hold down the top one to turn the JaJa on. The power light had a bit of a leak up into the barrel. You can custom-set the light and heavy pressure levels, which you can’t do with any other stylus. Otherwise, the buttons default to undo and redo functions, although some apps will let you change them.

The device’s high frequency sound technology lets the JaJa communicate with the iPad’s built-in microphone. This means JaJa can work in airplanes and RF-sensitive areas such as hospitals because it doesn’t require a battery-draining Bluetooth or WiFi connection to operate. It also works with Android tablets as well.

JaJa is specifically supported for illustration by the Procreate app available in the App Store ($4.99), ArtStudio, and Autodesk’s SketchBook Pro, but HEX3 says updates to more than 30 other design apps are in the works that add support for JaJa’s pressure sensitivity.

The JaJa has been extremely well received by the design and creative communities, as well as developers who are looking for new ways to integrate bleeding edge design technologies with current and future mobile apps,” said HEX3 founder and CEO Jon Atherton.

The JaJa has a lot of potential. It’s the only pressure-sensitive stylus that works with the original iPad, and there are currently no pressure-sensitive styli for Android tablets.It is available at a price of $89.99 directly on their website.
