Patent can be considered to be the new kind of ammunition in the war between companies, and Samsung and Apple have been a pretty good example of that so far.

This digital pen will still enable you to write or draw on your tablet’s display just like any other stylus allows you to, although Microsoft did patent this new kind of multitouch ePen which is said to come with touch sensors integrated right into the case itself, in addition to other necessary “equipment” such as a gyroscope, compass, and accelerator amongst others.
