using the camera in the pen might solve one of the problems with using the ipad with a stylus to date: the UI APIs are set up with a thick thingy (your finger) in mind.  This solution might better allow for finer work.

 

I use styli all the time for note taking apps with handwriting recognition (notes plus) and it is good, but I could see it would work better if there was an API for finer work, or, an alternative approach as described..

It's the heat death of the universe, my friends.

No kidding. Modbook was the prototype for what a tablet should be. Can you  imagine how great it would be if Apple were to build one from scratch, rather than an after-market rebuild of existing Macbooks?

Pressure sensitivity really is the key. The iPad is virtually useless as a artists tool without that.
