I've tested two capacitive styli with the HD2, see vid here:

The Pogo Sketch has a thick tip, kinda like a another finger.. The Dagi has a dot in the middle which hits correct around 80% of the times. Not perfect but if needed better than fingers!

I will definitively use the dagi when doing remote desktop work with the HD2. Until either the HTC stylus is released or Logmein/VNC apps change the way the cursor works. More like the iphone counterparts, move the desktop instead of the mouse etc. Seem more finger friendly.

I just made my own capacitive stylus


two experiments.

I took a small valve adaptor that's used to inflate a football (soccer) ball. filled the hollow part of the fat end with foil to come out just past the end of the screw on part.
then cover the end entire end with foil, and press the entire lot in really hard. Smooth the foil down (rub it on a piece of wooden laminate floor, your jeans what ever).

alternatively using a pencil with a rubber(eraser) on the end of it.
Cover with silver kitchen foil, leave enough foil up the shaft to make contact with your fingers. Smooth the foil down on the end.

Both seem to work fine, I prefer the shorter valve option.

*** Tested using the great Dynaink.

Interesting thread this.

However I find an irony in the fact that for years we have all been hassling for finger friendly devices and apps. As soon as we get one what do we do?
Yes, we go find a stylus to work with it!

Funny.
