DIY tablet pen
If you don’t feel like spending money on this handy device, you can make a DIY tablet pen.
First, get what you need:
- 30 cm of aluminum foil
- Scotch tape
- a pencil without a tip
- a sharp knife to blunt the pencil.
Use a sharp knife to give the pencil a tip at a slight, flat angle. Don’t tip the pencil as if you were going to use it to write.
At this point, wrap the entire pencil with at least two layers of aluminum foil. Carefully fold it over the tip. Spread the foil over the tip of the pencil. It should be smooth and flat in that spot, with no folds or bumps. If the tip is not flat, the pen may not work.
Wrap a piece of masking tape around the center of the pencil. This will secure the foil. Line the tip of the pen with masking tape. This way you won’t scratch the screen with the foil.
At this point the DIY tablet pen is ready and all that remains is to try it on your device. In case the tablet pen doesn’t work, try making the tip even flatter. Remember that it should be at least the size of an eraser, otherwise the touch screen will not recognize it.
