“Great tools inspire great ideas. FiftyThree is excited to announce Pencil, a new hardware accessory for Paper, and the latest in their essential suite of mobile tools for creativity.
Pencil is the most natural and expressive tool for getting ideas on Paper—a beautiful blend of advanced technology and crafted design. Pencil’s special expressive features: Erase, Blend, and adaptive Palm Rejection, open up a whole new world of creative possibilities in Paper.
With the release of Pencil, FiftyThree has created a simple and powerful tool that perfectly complements their debut app ‘Paper,’ named iPad App of the Year by Apple. Pencil comes in two models—’Walnut’ made from sustainable hardwood and ‘Graphite’ in brushed aluminum.
Once connected to Paper, Pencil gives creators access to unique expressive features:
Palm Rejection: You don’t have to get the math behind our adaptive palm rejection to appreciate how natural it feels to write and draw with Pencil. The most advanced palm rejection also requires no calibration and no setup. Rest your hand on the screen, write from any angle, draw from edge to edge—you’ll forget you’re creating on a tablet.
Erase: Be bold and make mistakes. Pencil’s unique built-in eraser lets you try anything knowing an eraser is only a flip away.
Blend: Get hands-on with your ideas. Pencil takes care of the lines so you can use your finger to smooth rough edges and blend colors directly on the page. Create beautiful color transitions for charts, skies, and shadows.
Chiseled Tip: Pencil’s durable tip has been carefully friction-tuned to feel great on a screen. Extra tip and eraser included.
Lasting power: Pencil’s long-lasting lithium-ion battery can be recharged on any USB port in under 90 minutes.
Kiss-to-Pair™: Bluetooth connection as it should be: no settings menus, no confusing pairing rituals. Just press Pencil’s tip to the screen. Clear, stable, simple… easy as falling in love.
Quality materials: Pencil is available in “Walnut” and “Graphite.” Graphite Pencils are seamless unibody aluminum with a black anodized finish. Walnut Pencils are each milled from a solid piece of first-grade walnut that has met rigorous standards for sustainability. Each Walnut Pencil has a subtly unique grain and tone to the wood.
Compatibility: Pencil has special expressive features when connected to Paper, but it still works beautifully as a basic stylus on any touchscreen device.
