The remarkable Microsoft Stylus is an incredible handheld device that has the amazing ability to perform eight different functions depending on how you are holding it.

It might sound far-fetched, but the research team behind the Microsoft Stylus has so far been able to make the stylus do everything from airbrush painting to playing the saxophone, all with a simple sleight of hand. All the user has to do is program each grip type and its associated function manually and then the Stylus' multi-touch and orientation sensors allow it to automatically decide which function is desired when held.

Just imagine being able to write with your Microsoft Stylus one moment, paint with it the next and then rip out a jazzy tune after with this one single tool... the future is here! Stats for Programmable Metamorphosis Pens Trending: Older & Chilly
