    iPad THERE WE GO AGAIN

    I am posting this small work here in the gallery to try to stimulate the curiosity of the ragers, and specially of my friends. The iPad styllus industry makes a great deal of noise regarding its modern electronic technology and function. But styllus functioning is very simple, “simplex” as we say around here. It works only with transfer of positive electrons from the ecran to the finger or another material. Everything happens in the screen of the iPad, I suspect and don’t understand the subtleties of that electronic provided controlled touch .

    It is just and only transference of ions to your body, i.e, to your finger, or to a different charged negative electron material. Try to touch the ipad screen with the negative pole of an AA or AAA batery to see the point. So, the main electronic event happens on the capacitive screen, the stylus is just a trigger factor to take ions out of the screen, nothing more.
    That is how the aluminium foil works, for sure.


    I’m building my own iPad brushes and am happy with it, fun to do. I’ve no experience with iPad painting, but it is interesting.

    I wouldn't waste my time on this homemade stuff? It seems crude, but just try it to see. If you have iPad and don’t want to waste around 50 bucks, test this… I for myself do not use my finger anymore!

    It works on iPad, and more, on iPhone, iPod and on the mouse pad of the PC.

    Este trabajo tuyo me interesa mucho, ya que espero poder adquirir pronto una Tablet, o bien una Ipad de Apple.
    A propósito: las actualizaciones de tu IPad de Apple, se deben pagar (mensualmente, semanalmente, anualmente???)

    This job interests me greatly, and I hope to soon acquire a Tablet or a Apple iPad.
    By the way: updates of your Apple iPad, you have to pay (monthly, weekly, annually???)
    Regards from Chile

    Thanks Oriane, I will be trying that as soon as I get some super glue

    Damas, for the Apple update its self there is not charge nor have I been charged for any update for any apps I have on my IPad

    Dear friends and dear, sorry for not answering your comments before .. I've got 4 of my grandchildren here in my house, spending some vacation days, you guys can imagine.

    Dear ladies Coops, Pat and Jean much appreciated your comments. Shibui thank you. Damaso I have only free apps on my iPad, there is a problem with the iPad store being solved. But as Jean said, upgrades are not paid. Damaso, nice to talk.

    Surely you guys gave me the incentive for me to keep talking about this. And yet I think I'll post more about it.

    Do you wonder why there are so many DIY iPad styllus/brushes alternatives published in the net? Why is it so easy to do it? It really works?

    My guess it is because there is not a revolutionary hightech principle behind the styluses or brushes built by the industry. The functioning of the styllus is very simple, and can be reproduced in many different manners and formats mainly using diferent conducive materials to transmit the negative electric charge of the skin (finger) to the screen. In other words the styllus/brush is just an intermediary object, a carrier interface to convey electrons from the skin to iPad's touchscreen (One of electricity's key concepts is electrical charge. Electrical current is also a key concept, being the flow of electricity from one point to another) . Apple's touch screen technology only reads electrical currents and not pressure, you won't be able to use touch sensitivity!!!
    The direct use of an electric negative charged object like the negative poles of an AA or AAA battery can trigger the touchscreen events.

    The events that happens in the capacitive touchscreen; a layer that stores electrical charge is placed on the glass panel of the monitor. When a user touches the monitor with his or her finger, some of the charge is transferred to the user, so the charge on the capacitive layer decreases.
    This decrease is measured in circuits located at each corner of the monitor. The computer calculates, from the relative differences in charge at each corner, exactly where the touch event took place and then relays that information to the touch-screen driver software.

    It is just transference of ions to your body, i.e, directly to your finger, or it can be elicit by means of an intermediary objects (styluses)

    So styllus functioning ain't a wheel reinvention, a break through of new technology - needlessly try to improve an already perfectly established concept... and smartly used by Apple and by the many existing DIY improvisation styllus ideas that really works.

    Really makes me wish I had an iPad.

    Great post, Doctor Lima! Leave it to you to come in with something scientific!

    Did you find that your brush took on the characteristics of what that brush would do in the real world -- making on the iPad a similar kind of mark as on a paint canvas? In other words, did the nature of the mark change when you changed the kinds of brushes from a bristle to sable? Or did they all just make a sort of similar contact point like the finger might?

    Those are some lucky grand kids to have a grandfather like you. I would bet they're jealous of their time with you. My grandfather, who was an engineer, was a bit of an inventor and certainly puttered in the basement, which was his playroom. Too bad he lived so far away or I would have doubtless hounded him mercilessly to let me play with something he was working on.

    Go, Dr Lima, GO!
