An Artist Reviews the iPad Pro and Apple Pencil

· · Cool Stuff Found

The iPad Pro will NEVER be a computer, do you hear me? Now excuse me while I type this CSF on my mechanical keyboard (forged in that girl’s tears) that will collapse my apartment building because of the vibration.

Sarcasm aside, the reason I like this iPad Pro review is because it’s from an artist, not a tech pundit. Ian Barnard covers the iPad Pro and the new Apple pencil. He doesn’t show off the art capabilities a whole lot, but he unboxes the devices and talks about them. Ultimately he likes the new model, and recommends upgrading to it, with the caveat that it might not be your cup of tea (British pun intended) and your wallet will have to decide.

Need an Apple Pencil Case? You Can 3D Print This One

Redditor u/flashnet needed an Apple Pencil case, so they made one themselves using a 3D printer. They tried existing designs but ran into trouble with the magnets it used. So this one—called iCICLE—screws together. There are plenty of Apple Pencil sleeves on the market, including ones that Apple sells. But the cases I’ve seen are bulky, and they would take up a lot of space in your bag. The iCICLE is slim and has a minimal design that Jony Ive would be proud of. In fact, it was inspired by Johnny, the Apple Pencil case on Indiegogo. Unfortunately the product didn’t get fully funded. The iCICLE is a close approximation, and if you happen to have a 3D printer, you can download the files on Thingiverse.
