I’ve tried several stylus-like things in my quest to find the perfect tool for wireframing and sketching on my beloved iPad. I think I have finally found what I was looking for after I received the Cosmonaut from Studio Neat.
I funded it back when it was just a great Kickstarter idea, and now I sit with one of them in my hand. The pen is big and thick—resembling a large charcoal stick—and instead of an 8mm nib, the Cosmonaut’s entire front tip can interact with your device. It’s exceedingly comfortable to hold, and spins out doodles and linework with aplomb. Writing is a little more challenging, as you can’t quite get the angle needed for handwriting or print, and navigation can feel a little clunky with the pen’s large tip, but overall, it’s a stellar option for stylus seekers who mainly want to use it for drawing.
