No matter what stage we advance to in a digital age, there remains a fundamental need for a utensil like Pencil from FiftyThree in hand for writing, drawing, sketching, doodling, and just plain thinking. FiftyThree CEO Georg Petschnigg and team say the Pencil supports thinking with your hands.

FiftyThree, with offices in New York and Seattle, was founded in 2011. Pencil is the company’s first hardware product. Paper, its first product, is a sketchpad-style application that won the Apple 2012 iPad App of the Year. Paper has been downloaded about 8 million times.

A Stylus Rethink

"Rethinking tools for mobile creation is at the core of what we do at FiftyThree," according to the company. And the stylus rethink that has gone into Pencil could inspire further attention to what a smart, feature-rich stylus might do for the tablet. Great hardware tools and software applications to support them could drive widespread adoption of writing using digital devices.

An Intel article titled "Pointing the Way: Designing a Stylus-driven Device in a Mobile World" by Benjamin A. Lieberman, PhD, principal architect for BioLogic Software Consulting, points to the possibilities ahead in an increasingly mobile computing environment.

Fortunately, he said, a number of application developers have begun to direct attention toward stylus support. "Going forward, application developers will improve on the past and find novel ways to use the stylus, leading to wider adoption in the marketplace," he added.
