OK, so we’ve already established that part of the urban male ensemble can include a whole passel of personal electronics. It all started with the touchscreen smartphone, and has now blossomed into a thriving industry where the capacitive screen is king. Because of this, we spend a lot of time poking at these sheets of glass with all those pretty colors twinkling away just beneath it. However, for a premium poking experience, I introduce to you the Sensu Brush & Stylus.
Though the Sensu works great with your average touchscreen smartphone as a way to limit the amount of smudges and greasy paw prints you have to endure in a day, it works even better on a larger screen like the kind you’d find on a tablet. Whether you are playing Angry Birds or are sitting down for a half hour of art therapy after woofing down a pastrami sandwich during your lunch break, the Sensu is up for the task. Here’s why:
Firstly, it is a simple and rarefied thing of beauty. It’s nicely weighted and well-balanced chrome body fits nicely and naturally into the hand when it’s being used as a stylus. Secondly, when it’s being used as a brush, the perfectly placed rubberized no-slip grip is quite comfortable, with the cylindrical belly and rounded tip of the tuft becoming a natural extension of your hand.
What’s not included:
- a tablet
- an app that helps set your creativity free in a digital format
If you spend a lot of time using a tablet, or if you happen to be the creative sort with aspirations of digital Picasso-ism, this dual-purpose input device should be right up your alley.
