3M Touch Systems Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of 3M announced at CeBIT 2011 the U.S. availability of its 3M Smart Pen, a uniquely designed input device finely tuned for use with popular capacitive touchscreen devices including the Apple iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. Its compatibility with multiple products and its ergonomic and stylish design make the 3M Smart Pen a valuable companion for active users of touchscreen devices currently in the market.The 3M Smart Pen has two designs to accommodate a variety of usage scenarios. The MHP-1000 comes in black, grey, pink and titanium silver with a clip attached for a traditional pen look-and-feel. The MJP-3000 is available in black, navy blue, pink and titanium silver with a detachable lid that allows the pen to attach to the speaker jack of a portable device.
Both pens have an ergonomic industrial design for giving it a natural and comfortable fit for both small and large hands. Activating with only a light touch, the pen’s unique anti-stiction properties let the pen glide smoothly across surfaces with greater precision than a finger and reduces fingerprints on the screen by not using your fingers.
