Ball Point Pen as Stylus

I kept running out of stylus for my tablet PC computer and my smart phones. I either lose them as I roam the house, or my toddlers take them to play. Last night, I didn't have a single spare stylus. But I did have my favorite roller ball pen. It has ran out of ink and I just kept it around because it was my favorite.

A light bulb came on in my head and I grabbed the roller ball pen to use as my stylus. It worked more wonderfully than a real stylus, because the ball actually rolls across the screen. Without creating friction like a real stylus, the ball point pen felt smooth and natural, like writing on a piece of paper. I was so glad I stumbled across this idea.

If you try this trick at home, make sure the ball point pen has no more ink left to smear the screen. Now you might have a reason to keep dried up pens around.
