HOW TO CREATE A STYLUS FOR YOUR XPERIA DEVICES IN JUST 2 MINUTES : [VIDEO TUTORIAL]​
:eek: :D

Your very own DIY stylus is just a few minutes away

Want to boost your Draw Something skills? Here's how to make a stylus for a capacitive touchscreen in four easy DIY steps.



Capacitive touchscreens are everywhere these days. They're in iPhones, iPads, iPods, Android/Windows smartphones, and all new tablets. Pretty much any mobile touchscreen device that is worth having, now has a capacitive touchscreen.

The fact that the touchscreens are conductive means that your device will only recognise a touch from your finger (or other body part) rather than, for example, the material in your pocket, or sleeve. This in turn means that you cannot use any old pen or nib as a stylus for your touchscreen.

So, because we're good guys here at PC Advisor - and we want to gain any advantage we can on Draw Something - we've looked into how to make a stylus. As it turns out, you can make your own DIY stylus with a few simple items you have lying around the house - and so long as you have a pulse (and therefor a natural electrical current running through your body) you can make your own stylus in a few minutes…and become the king of Draw Something at the same time.


Here's what you'll need:
:victory:


  • A cotton swab (aka “Q-tip”)
  • Aluminum foil
  • Scissors
  • Tape
  • A pen


1. Remove the ink from the pen.

2. Cut the cotton swab at a sharp angle and insert it into the mouth of the pen. Secure with tape.

3. Wrap the foil around the neck of the pen, a couple of centimeters above the tip of the cotton swab. Wrap tightly, and secure with tape at the top.

4. Moisten the cotton swab with a drop of water. (No, this will not harm your tablet's or phone's screen.)

That's it! Your stylus is ready for use. Note that your finger must be touching the foil at all times, and if your stylus stops functioning, re-moisten it with a touch of water. ;)

With rubber, it is sometimes too elastic making it sluggish to move.

Alternative of this tutorial, just sharpen any cheap chopstick like a pencil, and soak it with water, dry the stick on the outside and voila it works :)

If you want to avoid remoisturing your stylus from time to time, pushing a paperclip (after some bending of it) through the Q-Tip, then making a small curve, pulling it back and fixing it underneath the cotton works well, too, you need just a little bit of presure (not much, i promise if it is done right) to make the paper clip give the capacity to the foil and you don´t need the q-tip to be wet anymore :)

Oh and as we formed a curve at the front of the paper clip and hide it underneath the cotton there should be no scratching of the screen at all :D

    This homemade stylus looks butt ugly. If I ever made one I would feel embarrassed using it in public!
    If you don't like it then don't make it. Go buy a new one instead.
