Exciting Kickstarter Update!

$103,466 pledged so far!
We are excited to share that our Kickstarter campaign for the TruGlide Apex Stylus has been extremely successful to date.  Our goal was to raise $24,000 to create our new stylus, and we have reached $103,466 in donations.  That's 430% funded!

The TruGlide Apex is a fine point, electronic stylus with the smallest tip available, only 2.4mm.  This new stylus will make writing on your iPad as easy as writing on paper.  Just twist to turn it on, and write to your heart's desire.

Are you an early adopter?  College student who takes class notes on your iPad?  Live in the Arctic and need a great stylus for your iPad because you wear gloves 24/7?  Eco-friendly, self-proclaimed tree hugger who wants to go paperless to save the earth?  Then the TruGlide Apex is perfect for you!

Here is our Kickstarter video, in case you haven't seen it.  After watching it, you'll probably be as excited as we are about our new stylus!
