The Logitech Crayon Digital Pencil

Priced at just $49.99, Logitech Crayon is the first digital pencil designed for use in a K-12 classroom, and leverages technology found in Apple Pencil to deliver sub-pixel precision, low latency and support for tilt in a design that’s perfect for students. iPad features palm rejection technology and can tell the difference between Logitech Crayon and a hand resting on the display so students can write and draw naturally, just as they would with traditional pencil and paper.

Logitech Crayon works with an incredibly wide variety of apps and software already used in classrooms, including Apple’s updated Pages, Numbers, and Keynote, Microsoft Office and Explain Everything, giving students the ability to take handwritten notes, add sketches, diagrams and illustrations to projects, markup PDFs and more.

Designed for the classroom, Logitech Crayon connects to the new iPad instantly without pairing and its easy-to-grip flat surface prevents rolling, reducing the potential for accidental drops. With an 8-hour battery life, the Logitech Crayon can go a full school day before it requires charging. The smart tip of the digital pencil is pry-resistant and only removable with a special tool, while the rubber cap is tethered, so it cannot be easily misplaced.

Apple Design Chief Jony Ive Talks About The iPhone X & The New Apple Campus

Apple design chief Jony Ive recently sat down for an interview with design, architecture, and fashion magazine Wallpaper to discuss Apple Park, Apple’s newest campus in Cupertino, California which he had a hand in designing, and the iPhone X, Apple’s newest device.

The iPhone X, Ive says, was designed to serve as a vessel for software, with a design that melds into the background. Apple’s design team has always aimed to “get design out of the way.” “We try to define a solution that seems so inevitable that it does recede,” he said. In the future, Ive believes the iPhone X will offer capabilities it doesn’t have now because software is always evolving, something he finds intriguing and fascinating.

Ive’s full interview with Wallpaper is well worth reading and offers further discussion about the Apple Park campus and the attention to detail that went into its design. It also looks further at the various elements of Apple Park, including the Steve Jobs theater, the landscaping, and the configuration of the building.
