DIY iPhone Stylus

New touch screen technology patented by apple

The iPhone has revolutionized finger based touch screens but when it’s extremely cold and you’re wearing gloves, the use of finger based touch screens doesn’t seem very practical.

You could always buy an iPhone accessory like Pogo Stylus or use indigenous solutions like using a sausage as a stylus for your iPhone but we found this do-it-yourself (DIY) iPhone stylus quite neat.

You need a pen that is conductive (based on the comments over at Makezine any pen won’t work), a button fastner (size 1, about 3/8 inches), some glu, scissors and a piece of string to make this pen stylus for your iPhone or iPod Touch.

Sausage as an iPhone stylus? Checkout this cool video that folks at Gizmodo found of someone in Korea playing the recently released iPhone game.

As always if you give it a try or have figured out a better solution then please let us know in the comments.
