Not sure how effective or durable this stylus would be, but I love Mosspuppet and he does offer a little interesting commentary on ‘conductive foam’ availability – something other DIY stylus, like these here, here and here use. I suppose protein bar and other foil type wrappers are yet another alternative in our ‘Touch Barrier” […]
