am quite impressed with the digital pen that comes with Surface Pro
I find myself using it, not touch keyboard nor typecover. 1 thing interesting is that it can hover a cursor sans touch, like mouse pointer. What tech is this?
looks like there are quite a lot digital pen tech today. passive, active, etc.
Gonna look into.

It looks like the digital/active/passive/“graphing tablet” pen/stylus/digitalizer (no standardized terms) tech is very varied.
Some tech even use sound to determine position.
Wikip has several articles but very confusing
and don't go into tech detail.
