    (I cut an angle for the stylus so that I didn't always have to tap straight down on my iPod)

    Both ends of the stylus have been sanded with 600 grit sandpaper, so it is very smooth, but still need to see if it makes scratches. None so far.


    V1

    Thanks a lot!! ^^

    Your body is conductive and so is the aluminum foil, so when the aluminum foil comes into contact with the screen while your holding the stylus the capacitive material on the screen reconizes the pen and yeah.... I really don't know how it actually works. XDD

    I didn't want the stylus to be a boring cylinder, so i sanded off an angle on the pencil. XD

    you might be better off using a different material on the tip than aluminum, because I was using it for a while and it scratched my screen

    . You can however use the wrapper on wriggles gum "spearmint and ect" and I have found that it works just as good if not better and because it isn't 100% aluminum but a thin layer with padding so it wont scratch your screen as easily.
