MSI announced the second generation of its electronic stylus, the MSI Pen, which, in addition to screens, works on paper because it comes with nibs that allow it to be used as a real pencil.
The company said that (MSI Pen 2) is currently available in gray for (Creator Z17 HX Studio A13V) and (CreatorPro Z17 HX Studio A13V), and will launch a black version later.
(MSI) added that the pen, which weighs only 14.52 grams, supports tactile feedback (Microsoft MPP2.6), which is characterized by a small motor built into the body of the pen that provides slight resistance when the pen is in contact with the screen, giving the user a realistic writing experience.
The MSI Pen 2 seamlessly transitions from being a stylus to a pencil. The exclusive graphite tips can write on paper and erase just like a regular pencil, and the tips can be used on touch screens without scratching the screen. The pen comes with two types of replaceable nibs: a graphite nib, and a sharper nib that looks like a ballpoint pen.
According to the company (MSI), the pen battery increases productivity and efficiency everywhere, so that charging it for 5 minutes is enough to use the pen up to 10 hours, and when the battery is 100 percent charged, the pen works for 32 hours.
