Samsung announced new Tablets at MWC (Mobile World Congress) last night, but the star of the show was a new stylus. Designed through a partnership with German fine writing company Staedtler, the new "stylus" is actually virtually indistinguishable from a standard Staedtler Noris pencil aside from it's green color and digital tip. Otherwise, this thing is the same shape, weight and look of a standard pencil from Staedtler. They even package it between two standard pencils for comparison, almost to suggest this glorious new tool ios a love child of the two. Built with Wacom tech, IT DOESN'T NEED A BATTERY. 

The Verge says: "The Noris digital is colored black and green, to differentiate it from the traditional black and gold Staedtler color scheme. Other than that and the obviously different tip, this thing’s indistinguishable from an old school, graphite-and-wood pencil. It’s the same size and weight, has the same Staedtler stripes, and using it feels ergonomically natural and immediate for anyone who grew up writing, rather than typing, notes in school."..
