A stylus is a pen-shaped device that is used to execute actions on touch screen devices, instead of using a finger. These devices could be touch screen TVs, monitors, tablets, mobile phones, etc. It has a usability benefit over using a finger because the tip is as narrow as a pen’s nib, which drastically improves accuracy, and it also makes using the device more comfortable. Using a stylus also protects the screen from oil and smudges that can be caused due to the use of a finger. Most phones and devices nowadays come with a stylus or can be used using a separately purchased stylus.
For some devices, the stylus is the primary input instrument, and these devices come with an option to stop palm or finger touch movement. Stylus’ have evolved in the last few years, and are capable of performing many more tasks than just scroll and click. The latest devices allow you to use the stylus just like a pen to make notes and draw images in freehand. Samsung Galaxy S4 introduced the stylus that could be used by hovering over the screen, without the need to actually touch it.
Stylus pens are becoming increasingly popular in the e-learning sector, and in the educational sector in general. Institutes use the stylus as a pointing object, and blackboards are now replaced with whiteboards, which is a monitor on which freehand writing and drawing are possible via a stylus.
A 2015 initiative called the Universal Stylus Initiative (USI) is pushing device manufacturers to make their products compatible with one model of stylus pens, so consumers can use one universal stylus to seamless operate multiple devices. With this initiative, the stylus market is gaining momentum and quickly becoming a must-have accessory with touch screen electronic devices.
