The Graphite Tip On This Touchscreen Stylus Can Also Write On Paper
With the MSI Pencil 2, taking notes on paper or a screen can be done in an instant.
I can’t help but shudder at this new stylus from MSI that also functions as a pencil without changing tips or switching ends. If it weren’t for the weird stares I’d receive, I’d joyfully put three or four screen protectors to my touchscreen gadgets. However, it seems that MSI guarantees that switching back and forth between the screen and paper won’t scratch or otherwise damage your touchscreen displays.
You can get the allure of using a stylus instead of a mouse or even your finger to sign a digital document since it delivers the same level of accuracy as writing with a pen. We’ve seen a lot of options that combine styluses with pens for people who don’t want to carry around a multi-purpose stylus like the Apple Pencils, either through multiple tips that can extend and retract as needed or double-ended solutions where you flip the stylus over depending on where you’re using it.
Multi-tasking stylii are completely rethought with the MSI Pen 2. The bulky tip that narrows to a thin point gives it a similar appearance to Apple Pencils, however instead of being made of plastic, the tip is composed of graphite, the same material found in pencil “leads.” The MSI Pen 2 can rapidly switch to being used on a touchscreen, without leaving markings all over the screen, and it can be used to write on paper much like a pencil, with the ability to erase your marks afterwards (or any scratches, besides).
The stylus is also loaded with technology. It features a small motor for haptic feedback to replicate the delicate scratching sensation of a pencil on textured paper, even when used on a smooth glass screen. It is compatible with the most recent version of the Microsoft Pen Protocol, therefore it will operate best with touchscreen computers running Windows. The MSI Pen 2 is the perfect tool for artists who require more fidelity since it also has 4,096 levels of pressure sensitivity, can detect the pen’s angle, and has a swappable non-graphite tip with a finer point.
The MSI Pen 2 offers up to 32 hours of battery life and can operate a mouse cursor even when it is hovering eight to ten millimetres above a screen. Recharging is done via a USB-C connector on the side so it is not entirely reliant on one particular device for electricity.
