The Evolution of Precision

By David Sperry

Precision has always been at the center of our stylus solutions. While fingers and rubber styluses feel more like markers or crayons, Pixelpoint has helped us create a true digital pen. Our revolutionary Pixelpoint technology has enabled us to build the first fine point pixelpoint-blogstylus on the market with a 1.9mm tip that’s 70% smaller than our nearest competition. Pixelpoint provides the most precise stylus tip on the market not just because of its diameter, but also because of its control on the screen. Bluetooth LE, an accelerometer and our Jot Ready SDK work seamlessly in the background to communicate the angle and location of the tip to place the ink point directly underneath the stylus tip at all times. In addition, the plastic tip was designed to give you the experience pen and paper taught you to expect. The glass of an iPad screen lacks the drag and response you get from pen on paper, so we handpicked a plastic that would give users a more natural feel for better overall control on the screen. Pixelpoint is at the center of revolutionizing visual creation for a digital world and is the precision stylus engine that will drive our next evolution of stylus for the future; Jot Script, Jot Touch, & Adobe Mighty.


From day one, our goal has been to empower our users with tools that remove the barriers between thought and creation. We started by focusing on a stylus that would give artists the same natural experience they had come to expect from the pens, pencils and paintbrushes they were used to. Over a million customers around the world own a Jot stylus, and the Jot Touch was an important first step towards our goal.




We've taken another huge step forward in the realization of our mission through our partnership with Evernote and the announcement of the new Jot Script Evernote Edition Stylus; the first stylus available with Pixelpoint Technology. Evernote and Adonit bonded over a shared desire to master the art of note taking. We’ve taken what we learned from making an exceptional tool for artists, and applied that to building a stylus for anyone with an idea to capture. There is no learning curve or hurdles to jump through to make it work, just grab Jot Script and start writing.  By combining our revolutionary Pixelpoint technology with intuitive software we're now able to deliver an exceptional handwriting experience for note takers.


The development of Jot Script and Pixelpoint Technology has been over a year in the making. If you’d like to take a peek behind the scenes and learn more about the design process for developing Jot Script visit our Behance page to learn more.
