    Intelligent Stylus or “iPen”
    Although a stylus seems like a throwback to the Apple MessagePad PDA, this proposed device would have many more functions. The “Optical Stylus” would feature a camera and a pressure sensor that would allow a user to interact with display screens in three dimensions. Milunovich speculates that this device could easily be combined with a revolutionary painting or drawing software.
    It could also be used in conjunction with a Projection iPad, essentially creating a giant iPad without incurring the cost of manufacturing a large touchscreen. Perhaps even more interesting, Milunovich imagines that this stylus device could be used in conjunction with Google (NASDAQ:GOOG) Glass, allowing users to dynamically interact with a virtual screen.
