Evernote and accessory-maker Adonit announced today that they have teamed up to create a new Bluetooth stylus called the Jot Script Evernote Stylus. With its fine 1.9mm tip, it’s supposedly noticeably more accurate than capacitive styli.
The digital pen uses Adonit’s newly-developed Pixelpoint technology, which utilizes a combination of the device’s built-in accelerometer, Bluetooth, and Adonit’s frameworks to communicate the location of the stylus tip to compatible apps…
“The Jot Script Evernote Edition Stylus was designed by Adonit to feel like your favorite pen. Its refined metal finish, ribbed grip, fine point, and weighted hand balance all reflect the quality that Adonit styluses are known for.
“Adonit developed Jot Script to be the ideal stylus for taking notes. We’ve stripped everything away so you can just focus on capturing your ideas,” said Kris Perpich, CXO at Adonit. “We partnered with Penultimate to focus on a deep integration of Jot Script into a great note taking experience. Our collaboration allowed us to step back and rethink the ideal digital note taking experience. It’s going to bring back the lost art of handwriting.”
The Jot Script is powered by a single standard AAA battery and uses Bluetooth 4.0 to connect to iPads and iPhones (in less than two minutes). It’s compatible with the third-gen iPad and later, the iPad mini, and the iPhone 5 and later.
The stylus also takes advantage of Penultimate’s new Zoom feature, which intelligently enlarges the writing space as the pen approaches the screen, for better visual feedback. And as the user writes, the digital paper drifts along with them.
If you’re interested in picking up a Jot Script, they can be pre-ordered from either Evernote or Adonit for $74.95, shipping will take three to four weeks. I love Adonit’s Jot Pro line of styli, so I can’t wait to see what this new one is capable of.
