Abstract (en)

[origin: WO0063835A2] A pressure sensitive stylus, for example, as is used in a wireless whiteboard application is provided. The stylus includes a pressure sensitive element in contact with a tip of a stylus. As the pressure on the tip is increased during use of the stylus, a line produced may be broader or narrower, or the device may switch states based on pressure. For example, pressing the stylus to the board twice can turn the stylus into a paintbrush, or an eraser, or can change the color of the line produced by the stylus.
