Pressure Sensitive Drawing on the iPad

Ten One Design, creators of the Pogo Sketch, the stylus for touch screens and trackpads, has released this video of their software for the iPad. Using nothing more than an app and their Pogo stylus, they were able to create pressure sensitivity recognition, as well as palm rejection.
The Pogo stylus has a piece of conductive foam at the tip. If you press harder with the stylus, you expose more of the foam to the screen. It’s very similar to pressing harder with a paint brush.
So even if you can’t fingerpaint very well, you’ll soon be able to draw on your iPad very well. That is, if the app is approved by Apple.
