    ... a length of copper tubbing and some conductive foam.

    Not a fan of Pogo and others similar because they feel so small in my hand. The Dagi is nice but from just looking at photos it has to touch the screen at a specific angle. So I had some foam just laying around a mini pipe cutter and a lazy Sunday afternoon.

    Works pretty well =D

    The foam was free and I had a mini pipe cutter. So all together, $5 for 2 styli.

    Look at you Macgyver!
    Just be careful..if you push too hard or the foam wears down you might scratch your screen.

    The foam is quite firm so it takes a bit to squish the foam. And I got a sheet of that stuff anyways and a screen overlay for extra protection.
