    U have been working on making a stylus for the touch. so for the best result I have come from a body of a pen with a baloon like structure filled with water for the tip. right now I am working on finding the right material. so far I have tried

    rubber, pretty good but too sticky
    electrical tape, diffucult to form into I nice rounded point
    ziploc bag material, same problem as the electrical tape

    has anybody tried making a stylus or used a commerial product that worked well?

    You can't use a stylus with the ipod touch because it senses the general area of you finger the the pointy tip of something.

    Err.. I thought the touch screen relied on the electromagnetic field of your body (fingertip).

    My fingers work flawlessly besides typing sometimes but the ipod auto fixes typos........... whats the point of a stylus? you cant use multi touch with it and your fingers work much better....

    so far i have been able to get to work. though not as precise as a wacom the touch screen seems to sense any water filled object just like a finger

    the reason I am working on a stylus is so that If a good drawing program is made for the touch I can use it as a little pocket sketch pad

    Yeah it will sense it until the water leaks onto your screen.

    a few drops of water does not affect the screen, also it works through a layer of plastic no problem
