game-inspired touch-screen stylus that helps give you an edge over your Draw
Something friends. The Draw Thing™ will enhance your all-around Draw
Something™ game on iPad®, iPhone®, iPod® touch and Android® devices.
Draw Something is the new app that has taken the world of smartphones by
storm. An online version of Pictionary®, it allows players to use Apple® and
Android devices as a canvas. Until now players had to use their fingers as a
paintbrush. With The Draw Thing you will be able to transform your doodles
from finger-painting into art.

The Draw Thing was born out of the desire to have a really great stylus for
the amazing Draw Something game. By designing "The Draw Thing," Dan Weinstein
and Doron Fetman felt that it would be a great way to Draw a "better thing"!
"We are bringing back the 'Draw' in Draw Something," said Weinstein, who is
the company's Creative Director. "We bought several different stylus models
currently available on the market but they all suffered the same problem: they
were designed to look and feel like a pen and did not have kids in mind. In
addition, our stylus has a rubber sleeve that can be interchanged with
different-colored sleeves. We will be adding licensed designed sleeves as
well, so collect them all!" added Fetman.
