Staedtler has developed an education-focused digital stylus for touchscreen Chromebooks in partnership with Google called Noris. The company is no stranger to making such products as it already has a version of the Noris out for Samsung’s Chromebook Plus and Chromebook Pro. The company will now be releasing a Noris digital stylus for other Chromebooks later this summer.
Google dubs it as “The Chromebook stylus by STAEDTLER,” and says that it’s useful for both teachers and students. The stylus doesn’t require any pairing or charging and it has been designed with affordability in mind.
The company further adds that the Noris digital stylus for Chromebooks is compatible with a wide variety of Chrome OS apps and that it’s going to be available for purchase later this summer.
The ElectroMagnetic Resonance or EMR technology creates an electromagnetic field and the stylus interacts inductively with this. This enables the device to know the precise location of the stylus without ever requiring it to be paired or charged. This makes the stylus always ready to use with the Chromebooks.
While Google mentions that the Noris digital stylus will not break the bank, it hasn’t confirmed the price for it as yet. The one for Samsung’s Chromebooks costs under $40 so that’s likely going to be the price point of this stylus as well.
