Stylus

A small pen-like instrument used to "write" on a touch-screen device.

A stylus is often nothing more than a simple stick of plastic, except that its tip is specifically designed to not damage the screen.

The stylus provides far more accuracy than could be achieved with a fingertip, and provides a familiar pen-like experience for inputting handwriting or drawings.
