My METAL project has bought a couple of iPads, and I am trying one out to see whether I could use it to present classes. The software available is very nice and amazingly cheap … more on that another time. But what is the best way to write? I have obtained a Jot Pro stylus, which is pretty good as these things go. But at the moment there is no good way to rest my hand on the screen as I can when using my Toshiba Tablet PC.
What is the best way round this at the moment? Well, I did find that my leather gloves do work: they are thick enough to prevent my hand being detected by the iPad. Thin rubber washing gloves don’t work: it is capacitance not conductance that matters here? I’m not an expert on this, so perhaps someone better informed can explain!
Searching on Amazon for iPad gloves brings up plenty of options. I have just ordered
though perhaps these will turn out to be too small. Of course my hand is likely to get rather hot by the end of the lecture!
I will report back in due course.
