This is how it look when you get one of these cool stylus. It’s in a box to make your Cosmonaut look like a rocket. I’m really fortunate and thankful that Tom and Dan sent me one of these stylus to test, play and review.
There it is laying on the table in all it’s Cosmonaut Glory !!!
This is the Cosmonaut in my hot little hand as you see it’s thick like a dry eraser marker. It’s very solid and feel really nice in your hand with the rubber grip the stylus won’t slip out of hands when used on an iPad or tablet device.
Cosmonaut also has a bit of weight to it but it’s not too heavy to hold or write with. You can watch Vida using the stylus with ease and no problem coloring and doodling with it. She enjoying herself and loves using my iPad and The Cosmonaut.
To show you how well this stylus works, I did a test with Tayasui Sketches. That fat rubber tip makes very clean and precise lines, even with a screen protector on my iPad and works well for painting too. It’s really important to keep you iPad and tablet screen clean.
Here’s a drawing I did with the Cosmonaut and using Tayasui Sketches, called Bugs.
The next two example are drawing and then layered image with a photo. 1) I used the Cosmonaut to draw the Flowing Flower Buds on the top image with Tayasui Sketches. 2) Then I layered the Flowing Flower Buds on top of a cloud photo using Photo Forge 2.
I did the same thing with second drawing and layered it with a photo on top of it. I drew out my image with Tayasui Sketches and used the Cosmonaut to draw with it. Then layered them on top of each other with Photo Forge 2 again.
Replacing your Cosmonaut Tip, now how to get a replacement you would have to contact them. I’m not sure how to order a replacement tip or how to get another one but if you have to I’d contact them. But with the rugged quality of this stylus I don’t see you getting a replacement tip soon. Tom and Dan are both very nice guys and helpful.
Overall the stylus is built really well and worth the $25, this stylus will last you a long time as long as you take care of it. It’s great for kids and the elderly. I recommend this stylus for a going back to school or collage gifts. You don’t have to worry about shoving the stylus in your back pack or pocket. It will collect lint from you pockets but that’s OK because the link doesn’t collect on the tip. It’s very strong and durable but I wouldn’t keep the Cosmonaut out in the sun for a long time.
