Draw some things with the Draw Thing

I've seen a lot of styluses (styli?) over the years, but the latest offering looks like it will be a lot of fun, and for the right purposes, could be quite comfortable.

The Draw Thing

The success of Draw Something has inspired The Draw Thing, an oversized yellow Number 2 pencil style stylus.  While it might be too big for typing and fine details, it could be just the thing for drawing on an iPad and having fun at the same time.  You can't buy it yet... you have to pre-order/support the project, Kickstarter-style, but through Indiegogo.com.

I've already ordered one.  At $5, it's a bargain and won't hurt the pocketbook to help fund a neat little project.  Their slogan is 'Draw like DaVinci, not DiCaprio' which is cute, but as I recall, DiCaprio (okay, technically it was his stand-in, director James Cameron) did a pretty good job in The Titanic!
