FiftyThree launches Pencil Bluetooth stylus for its sketching app

Remember when we spotted that FiftyThree, makers of the iPad sketching app Paper, was working on a stylus?

Now it’s time for Paper to meet Pencil. Looking like an enormous marker pencil, the unit comes in a choice of sustainable hardwood or brushed aluminum, jam-packed with technology inside. Innovations include palm rejection, an eraser-end to remove your digital mistakes and a rechargeable battery that promises a month of life with normal use.

Pairing to your iPad over Bluetooth, you’ll also get access to various paid-for tools like Outline, Mixer and Sketch for free. Of course, the unit will set you back $50, but that’s a small price to pay to be top of the life drawing class.
