Make a stylus for your smartphone or tablet

Hello Makers,

This month we're getting to some DIY gadgetry with a project to make a stylus for your smartphone or stylus.

We're going to be modding a regular pen into a stylus.  The workshop includes one pen to practice on (and learn the principles).  Bring your own favorite pen to mod - most suitable will be one with a metal body and an inkwell that can be removed.

Cost:  $5 for materials
