A stylus is widely used as an input tool for portable electronic devices with handwriting and touch interfaces. The stylus facilitates application of handwriting input user interface for touch screens of such portable electronic devices. Contact on the surface of the touch screens provides a pressure to trigger electrical signals. Typically, such a stylus is a separate piece of plastic molded material which can be retained with a slot disposed on a main hous- ing of a portable electronic device.
