    thinking of how they most likely made the pogo stylus (in their own words: The Pogo Stylus has been engineered using a patent-pending method to simulate the touch of a finger on the Multi-Touch display. This isn't a "real" answer, but it is management speak for "trade secret.") they most likely made it so that the fluffy end looking part is ever so slightly electrically charged by some sort of small battery inside the handle part, which the ipod recognizes. thats my theory, i couldnt prove it wrong or right unless i actually took one apart though

    Yeah, that's my guess too. You could try running some wire or something down the side of a pen, so that and electricity from your body would be conducted down it to a point or something.

    That's just a shot in the dark though, I have no idea if it would work.

    Well, don't know if a wire down it would work - I mean, it won't work with a metal stylus - too much capacitance or something... Not sure...
