If you have fat fingers, or somehow capacitive touchs creens don’t work that well with your fingers, or you simply need more accuracy, you may have purchased one of those cheap capacitive stylus, many of which come with a real ball-point pen and/or a flash light. However, I’ve just noticed GeekBuying listed a few USB multi-functional 6-in-1 touch pens with 4 to 32GB internal flash with prices ranging from 8 to 19 dollars.
Based on the picture above, you can open the stylus to take out a USB flash drive that you can insert into your computer, laptop or mobile’s micro USB OTG port via an OTG adapter. Specifications include:
- Use with touchscreen of smartphone or tablet PC
- Ball-point pen
- Files storage (USB flash drive)
- Money inspection (ultra-violet light)
- Pointer (red laser)
- Mini flash-light
- Dimensions – 143 x 12 mm
- Weight – 25 grams
I find the USB drive-in-a-pen idea pretty neat, although I’ve found out it’s not exactly new. At first, I thought it may have been a micro USB connector, but based on the diameter (1.2cm) of the pen, it has to be a full-sized pen, that looks probably fatter in real-life than in the picture above.
