» Stinger Stylus Conclusion
Stinger Stylus from Obit Industries is a new kind of styli that fits snugly around your index finger.
The Stinger is designed to adjust to any finger size, from a 3.25” girth, to as small as you ant to cut it. When you purchase the Stinger it comes flat, and you bend it and adapt it to you finger. You can choose from an assortment of colors (blue, yellow, red, and gray), or a pack of all gray styluses. The Stinger is molded out of plastic and is quite comfortable for long periods of use.
After using the Stinger for a week, I found that it offered comfort and ease of input into my PDA. Having the Stylus at the tip of ones fingertips gives you ease of use and accuracy when tapping on the touch screen.
There were two minor problems I encountered while testing the Stinger. Sometimes my finger got in the way of the screen while tapping, but I found this could be avoided if I trained myself to hold my hand to the side of the Visor. Also, writing takes some getting used to, since we are used to write using pens, not with our fingertip.
At $1.65 each, you don't need to worry about losing the finger pen. Compared to the Concept Kitchen Finger Stylus, the Stinger is a great price. The Concept Kitchen Stylus is $19.99 each and is available on their web site. Conclusion >>
