Better Screening

Writing on a tablet isn’t like writing on paper, so why use a stylus designed like a pen? The Cosmonaut wide-grip stylus is modeled after a dry-erase marker, giving you better control and a more comfortable grip. Founders Tom Gerhardt and Dan Provost smartly observed that using a touch screen is like writing on a whiteboard—you can’t rest your hand on either. From there, they carefully engineered the Cosmonaut for comfort and performance. It’s built in the USA with a balanced, lightweight aluminum core and a waterproof, rubberized coating for better grip. The precision tip is also replaceable. Using this stylus for writing, design work, or other detailed tasks is more accurate than using your fingers and won’t leave smudges. The Cosmonaut is great for just about anyone and is especially helpful for kids or those with mobility issues (arthritis, carpal tunnel, etc.). It can also be a game changer for people who use their tablets for art and design. Enjoy a spotless touch screen, comfortable grip, and better precision with Cosmonaut.

    Hi Dan! Your product looks great, but seems a bit pricey for what it is. Couldn't we just put a piece of plastic wrap over the end of a toddler's crayon? Linda C.

    @Linda I wish it were that simple, but unfortunately, no. The materials are very specific, and expensive. They are electrically conductive, which is what allows the Cosmonaut to work on touch screens. Just using regular plastic would not work :)

    @Lynn Thanks for the comment Lynn! In an attempt to persuade you, I will mentioned that it is a) made in the USA, and b) built like a tank, so it will last for a long time.

    @Pam Great question Pam. The Cosmonaut is on the larger size, so it is meant for more quick, low fidelity work. So, when zoomed in it would definitely be sufficient for burning or dodging or coloring treating large sections, but it might not be as great for super precise work. Hope that helps answer your question!

    This looks great! With all the money I've spent over the years on a stylus, this one looks substantially better. I like the larger size too. My mom has arthritis and I think this would work better for her than the standard pencil/pen size stylus.

    The description mentions that the tip is replaceable. What is the cost for that and where is it available? Seems that being able to replace just the tip would make it more cost effective in the long run.

    Hi Dan. It looks like a very substantial product. Solid in the hand etc. Not like most flimsy styli. Is there any plan to make one with a finer tip in the future? THAT, I would buy! J.D.

    @Laura Hi Laura, no current plants to make a thinner tipped version. The problem is, with the way most touch screens recognize a "touch", the input needs to be about this size (the screens are calibrated for a human finger, after all). There are ways around this limitation, but they typically involve Bluetooth connectivity or some other work around.
