The new Noris digital jumbo looks just like a classic jumbo pencil with triangular shape. But it also includes the latest EMR technology from Wacom, innovative WOPEX material and a soft digital eraser at the end of the stylus.
By simply turning the stylus around, text and drawings can be easily deleted from the display and errors can be corrected. The Noris digital jumbo is a stylus for anyone who does not want to miss out on the classic, analogue writing and erasing experience in the innovative digital world.
While the Noris digital classic is available with the same length and shape as a classic pencil, the new Noris digital jumbo is being launched with a compact jumbo shape. At 140 mm, it is significantly shorter than the classic version and also features a thick triangular shaft. This makes it particularly suitable for children and their first writing and drawing exercises on digital devices.
The ergonomic features of Staedtler’s new stylus also have advantages for bigger hands – on the tablet at home, on the smartphone on the move, in the office or for artists and designers doing creative work.
The highlight of the new Noris digital jumbo is the soft, digital eraser at the end of the stylus – optically and functionally it is just like an eraser on classic pencil. The handling is therefore already familiar: turn the stylus around and erase, as easy as that.
No additional buttons have to be pressed or extra functions activated. The eraser is also so soft that erasing on the display feels familiar, just like using an eraser on a piece of paper.
Tradition meets innovation
Unlike a lot of other smart pens, writing with a stylus from the Noris digital range feels very similar to writing with classic pencils. That is because it combines the advantages of both worlds: the shapes and striped look are inspired by its world-famous analogue forerunner, the Noris pencil.
Despite its nostalgia-inducing exterior, the styluses have a real technical innovation hidden inside: Wacom’s digital lead. The lead uses electromagnetic resonance (EMR) technology to ensure a very comfortable and natural writing experience on compatible smartphone, tablet and notebook displays.
Thanks to the EMR technology, the digital device always knows exactly where the writing point is in relation to the display because it emits an electromagnetic field that interacts inductively with the lead in the stylus. What is more, the device ignores any palms resting on the display surface – this is known as palm rejection. This allows users to rest their hands comfortably and to write and sketch with a completely natural posture without their hand getting tired.
The thin 0.7 mm writing point ensures extremely precise writing and drawing. This point can also be replaced. As with a pencil, the width of a stroke varies depending on the pressure applied. There are 4,096 pressure levels. The writing angle supported is very flexible, meaning users can use a wide range of drawing techniques, such as cross-hatching an area by simply tilting the stylus. Since the EMR technology does not consume any power, the Noris digital never requires a battery to be charged or replaced.
