While tablet-based digital design tools have their advantages, many design professional find that standard styluses inhibit their creativity. An Irish architect and design team offers a solution with their new ergonomically designed stylus called Scriba.
While digital design apps provide engineers and architects with the freedom to sketch and share drawings from wherever they are, standard styluses are often heavy and clumsy to use. An Irish architect, David Craig and Dublin Design Studio, endeavored to solve this problem. The solution they developed is an ergonomically designed, squeeze controlled, flexible stylus called Scriba. How did they engineer and develop this stylus and what are its advantages?
Designed with Architect Input
The current design of Scriba is the latest of 93 prototypes tested by architects, engineers, artists, and designers. After each trial, the Scriba team integrated the feedback from their pilot groups to refine the design of the stylus. Reviews of the current Scriba stylus describe the flexible hand shaped design as comfortable and intuitive to use. Users also report they have greater control of their digital drawings than they do with a traditional stylus. They find the squeeze activated functions less cumbersome than those on traditional styluses are.
