Scriba Stylus review: It’s not a Pencil, but it’s more than that
The Scriba is built using durable plastic, and designed for an ergonomic stylus/pen/pencil/brush feel.
Scriba is a Bluetooth stylus that features a capacitive tip and works in conjunction with sensors.
If you are presently scratching your head and thinking what this alien-looking handheld device is, then you would be surprised that it is a capacitive Bluetooth stylus with an ergonomic design. Yes, it is conventional capacitive stylus with a twist. It works together with Bluetooth and a couple of sensors to give your artistic hand a freedom of speech.
Confusing right? Actually, you have to see and use it to believe it.
The Scriba is a new-age digital stylus. Researched and developed by a Dublin-based architect, David Craig. Craig was responsible for a number of high profile projects, including the competition winning design for the U2 Tower. Following the slowdown in construction, he looked for a new challenge. A regular user of digital tools in design, he observed that the traditional styli were little more than digitised versions of pens and pencils. He then saw an opportunity for a new type of tool and built a new type of digital stylus that is designed around the user. Scriba is proclaimed as the world’s most innovative digital stylus and has won many design and innovation awards.
David got in touch with us and wanted us to have a glimpse of the product that he thinks could see a new place in a market like India. After using it for a few days, we were impressed. However, we did feel the product does have a few more iterations to consider.
