Unlike most styluses on the market, here is a kid-friendly alternative that not only glows, but doesn’t even need to touch the screen to turn an iPad into a kid-friendly interactive coloring book.

Most people wouldn’t want to give their kids an iPad for fear of damaging the screen, and even using a stylus won’t prevent kids from smudging and possibly damaging its surface. Griffin’s Crayola-branded iPad marker fixes all those worries.

In this case, the glowing tip of the marker actually functions by being detected with the iPad’s front facing camera. Kids can use the included app to draw pictures, connect dots, solve clever puzzles and play motion-controlled games with the device. The only catch is that the iPad in use has to be a model with a front facing camera, which is any model iPad after the first batch. Stats for Motion-Controlled Tablet Pens Trending: Older & Chilly
