steve jobs hated the idea of a stylus. he openly mocked it during the 2007 keynote of his first iPhone. he died and the apple pencil came to fruition, but the pencil shouldn’t be mistaken for a blackberry stylus, like the one he poked fun at. apple’s pencil is a tool for many artists and designers, a tool that may soon be used to draw and conceive lines and shapes and 3D content out of thin air. according to recently discovered patent application, titled ‘CONTENT CREATION USING ELECTRONIC INPUT DEVICE ON NON-ELECTRONIC SURFACES,’ as long as you have an apple pencil, absolutely anything could be a canvas, even — no — especially, the empty air in front of you. this isn’t a stylus. this is a wand, people.
