Stretchwrite is a piece of rubber that, when worn around any pen or pencil, turns it into a functional capacitive stylus. Basically, it’s like a prophylactic for pens so they can safely make physical contact with your mobile gadget’s display. No glove, no love.
Designed to wear on a pen from end to end, it gives the writing instrument a soft rubber grip that could prove just a bit more comfortable than your ballpoint’s plastic body, whether you’re drawing on an iPad or jotting down notes on a stationery. That should give it a little more desirability compared to the stylus-tipped ballpoint caps that some people use to turn regular pens into touchscreen-friendly instruments.
Made by Felix, the StretchWrite has a hole on one end for accommodating ballpoint tips and a capacitive cap on the other for tapping on your smartphone and tablet screens. It comes with a thin-wall, hollow point stylus nib that the product page claims creates a “high-quality stylus” experience on any device with a capacitive touchscreen. Because it stretches, it should fit most pens and pencils, as well as most other writing instruments within a reasonable thickness size. Oh, and if you haven’t bothered carrying a pen in years, you can probably wear this over any object with pen-like dimensions to turn that into a stylus. You know, like chopsticks or candles or even your girlfriend’s make up brush.
StretchWrite comes in two colorways: red and gray; and blue and pink. Price is $10 for a pair.
