With the release of Pencil, FiftyThree has created a simple and powerful tool that perfectly complements their debut app “Paper,” named iPad App of the Year by Apple. Expressive Features: When connected to Paper, Pencil gives creators access to unique expressive features:
● Palm Rejection: Our adaptive palm rejection instantly knows whether it’s your hand or Pencil touching the page. Rest your hand on the screen, write from any angle. No calibration or setup. You’ll forget you’re creating on a tablet.
● Erase: Be bold and make mistakes. Pencil’s unique builtin eraser lets you try anything knowing an eraser is only a flip away.
● Blend: Get hands on with your ideas. Pencil takes care of the lines so you can use your finger to smooth rough edges and blend colors directly on the page. Create beautiful color transitions for charts, skies, and shadows. Pencil Details: FiftyThree has radically simplified critical details including charging and wireless connection.
● Tuned tip: Pencil’s tip has been carefully frictiontuned to feel great on a screen. Extra tip and eraser included.
● Lasting power: Under normal use, Pencil will not need to be recharged for about a month. Pencil’s longlasting lithium battery can be recharged on any USB port in under 90 minutes.
● Quality materials: Pencil is available in “Walnut” and “Graphite.” Graphite Pencils are seamless unibody aluminum with a black anodized finish. Walnut Pencils are each milled from a solid piece of first grade walnut that has met rigorous standards for sustainability. Each Walnut Pencil has a subtly unique grain and tone to the wood.
● Compatibility: Pencil has special expressive features when connected to Paper, but it still works beautifully as a basic stylus on any touchscreen device.
● Free Paper Tool Set: Try all the Paper tools for free while using Pencil.
● KisstoPairTM: Bluetooth connection as it should be: no settings menus, no confusing pairing rituals. Just press Pencil’s tip to the screen. Clear, stable, simple… easy as falling in love.
