24 Wacky Stylus Designs

From Sharp-Shooting Styluses to Face Mask Styluses

— March 13, 2013 — Tech
The invention of pens that are specifically designed to write on tablets and touch screen surfaces is an amazing invention, and the popularity of these writing devices have resulted in some wacky stylus designs that are visually striking and out-of-the-ordinary.

With the variety of different stylus designs available for the picking, retailers have to find a way to make their products visually stand out. This is why these wacky writing pens are shaped like objects that you wouldn't normally associate with these stylus devices. From pens that are shaped like machine guns to those resembling chopsticks, these quirky technological devices are transforming otherwise ordinary pieces of equipment into visually striking products.

The evolution of these stylus designs showcases how retailers are adapting their products to meet the demand for unique and exclusive items.
