Most users operate touch-type screens with stylus. But if we talk about games, then this option is excluded. It is very convenient to enter text and numeric characters using the stylus. There is a significant drawback and it is that it is sometimes very difficult to delete what is written.
A stylus is an object in the form of a pencil, which is very convenient for drawing, writing or turning pages on a touch-type display.
Which option to choose: buy or do it yourself?
The cheapest and simplest stylus can be bought for about fifty rubles or ordered online. If you create an item with your own hands, then much more money will be spent. A wide range of stylus is available in digital stores. The object differs in color and appearance.
On the Internet, you can find a huge number of articles on how to create a stylus with your own hands. The main task is to understand the principle of creating an object, and then everything is very simple. The principle is as follows – it is necessary to transfer the flow of ions to the display through absolutely any conductor. For example, if you take a piece of wire in your hand, bend it at an angle and slide it across the screen, the display will react. It is very important that the stylus does not ruin or scratch the screen.
What do you need to make a stylus?
- round polyethylene surface;
- regular pen;
- a small piece of sponge.
A piece of sponge should be moistened and placed in the very center of a round polyethylene surface; no liquid should flow from the sponge.
Then make a rod out of foil, which will correspond in length to a ballpoint pen; it needs to be positioned so that it is adjacent to the damp sponge.
Next, the round surface must be wrapped with tape; the entire structure must be completely wrapped with tape to the handle.
The rod can be pulled out so that it does not dangle; except for a pen, you can use any long object that is comfortable to use and that will not damage the screen.
Now you need to take a mobile gadget and try a new hand-made stylus; the item does not look very attractive, but it works great.
