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.

Screen Shot 2013-11-20 at 5.43.15 AM

Fifty Three, the company that brought us the Paper app for the iPad has introduced their take on the artist’s stylus, the Pencil ($50-$60). 

Screen Shot 2013-11-20 at 5.43.21 AM

Available in either graphite or walnut, and inspired by the shape of a carpenter’s pencil, this stylus sports a range of features that let you create digital art more easily.

Screen Shot 2013-11-20 at 5.43.25 AM

Palm rejection makes sure that Paper doesn’t pick up the presence of your hand while you work, while the built-in eraser lets you simply remove mistakes. Bluetooth connectivity, a month of battery power, and a highly sensitive tip make it wonderful to work with every time.

The Walnut version contains magnets that let you stick the Pencil to your iPad Smart Cover for convenient carrying. SMART!!!
