The Sensu Brush: An Artist's Brush for the iPad

Artist Hardware, a group who usually designs products for other companies, has decided to develop a project of their own. They're using Kickstarter to fund the production of the Sensu Brush, a true artist's brush for the iPad.

And since the iPad is portable, the brush should be too, right? They designed the handle for dual function—to reverse as a cover with a stylus on the end. See the promo video below.

Sensu Brush was developed using a new conductive fiber technology originally developed for cosmetic brushes to better release fine powder particles when the brush came in contact with the skin. The fiber has the right resiliency and bounce and could be tapered easily, unlike other metallic fibers they had tested.
