Using a paintbrush on an iPad. Nomad Brush.

Techstination feature for Tuesday, August 30, 2011

Using a paint brush on an iPad.   I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear.     No, we aren’t talking about something your kids might do to your 500 dollar tablet.   We’re talking about real brushes that work with iPads and other touch screens to let you use art apps such as ArtRage,  in a more natural way.   Don Lee is the founder and CEO of Nomad Brush…

“Basically what it is is a stylus that looks and feels just like a traditional artist paint brush.   This is achieved by the bristles which are a blend of natural and synthetic and conductive fibers.  And it gives you, allows you to  interact and use it on touch screen devices.”

There are three different size brushes available and they work on pretty much all capacitive touch screens .  The Nomad Mini is designed for the iPhone or iPod Touch.   Prices range from about twenty to twenty five dollars.   You can find us at   I’m Fred Fishkin.
