I received the Cosmonaut capacitive stylus last week (finally). I backed Studio Neat's Kickstarter project a while ago, and after quite a few production and design issues, they finally released it. Now you can order it from their store
. The stylus is $25 excl postage, which is $7 for international orders. Total is thus $32.
This stylus set me back a whopping $5 and shipment is included.
I was actually perfectly happy with the cheap stylus, but since I love my Glif from Studio Neat, and I love well designed productsI decided to back their Cosmonaut project anyway.

When NASA first started sending up astronauts, they quickly discovered that ballpoint pens would not work in zero gravity. To combat the problem, NASA scientists spent a decade and $12 billion to develop a pen that writes in zero gravity, upside down, underwater, on almost any surface, and at temperatures ranging from below freezing to 300 degrees Celsius.
The Russians used a pencil.
