Online PR News – 14-September-2011 LOS ANGELES (September 14, 2011) GoSmart , Inc.
                                           –                                         —
announced today the launch of the Zepplin Stylus on Kickstarter.com . The Zeppelin Stylus -- a
sleek, capacitive stylus with a specially-formed stainless steel wire tip provides a clear,
unobstructed view of the touchscreen display during writing, sketching, scribbling, and making
selections on all capacitive touch tablets and smartphones including iPad, iPhone, iPod Touch,
Samsung Galaxy, Motorola Xoom, HTC Flyer, etc.

The human finger is not a precision pointing tool. Currently available styluses use some kind of
solid conductive material, such as foam, rubber, or coated translucent plastic to emulate the finger’s
capacitance.

 I’ve really enjoyed creating the Zeppelin Stylus, but to make this into a product that others
   can enjoy, we need expensive injection molding tools and production machine times to
   drive the unit cost down,” states Jae Son, Ph.D., Founder of GoSmart, Inc. and creator of
                                      the Zeppelin Stylus.

The Zeppelin Stylus gives the user clarity and precision via Capacitive Coupling, which takes
advantage of the fact that a wire has electric fields extending beyond itself. By using two conceptric
rings, the patent-pending tip acts like a solid conductive surface but with minimal obstruction.

The tip is formed from a single piece of tempered stainless steel wire, making it very strong and
flexible. Its center spring coil allows the outer ring to pivot easily so that the stylus may be used at
various angles. The end of the wire is machine-finished to prevent scratches on the display and
even on softer materials such as plastic.

The body is organically shaped using two spline curves and is constructed from solid, aerospace-
grade aluminum with two embedded rare earth magnets for attaching to the iPad 2 or a magnetic
surface. The protective cap prevents the stylus from rolling, and its clean sleek design allows the
stylus to be placed upright like a rocket.
