The Active Pen delivers precise performance allowing you to write, draw, and tap the touchscreen effortlessly. With every stroke, the Active Pen captures even the most subtle nuances of pressure, allowing you to adjust line weight, brush size, and more by pressing harder or softer with the pen. When the pen is near the screen, the touch sensors are turned off so you can maintain a comfortable writing position, even laying your palm on the PC. Two tips are included, allowing you to simulate working with a variety of traditional art and design materials.
