Looking at this post re HTC and stylus patents, I'm going to start looking at a kludge for my mouthsticks using magnets.

HTC has a solution ready for the market. They have patented an ordinary stylus but with a twist. The stylus has a magnetic head, and due to the current induced by its movement relative to the capacitive screen is able to elicit the same electrical reaction as a finger, but with much more precision.
