The Universal Stylus Initiative, a nonprofit tech trade association launched last year, announced that the industry’s first demonstration of USI styluses with a USI-enabled Windows PC at the upcoming COMPUTEX Taipei 2016 event on May 30. USI was founded with the mission to define “industry-wide standards for interoperable communication between an active stylus and touch-enabled devices” like smartphones, tablets, and computers.
USI recently completed its 1.0 Device and Stylus Specification.
“Since USI’s founding a little over a year ago, the organization has doubled to over 30 members and published the USI 1.0 global interoperable stylus specification,” Peter Mueller, chairman for the Universal Stylus Initiative, said in a statement. “Our next milestone is a live multiple stylus demonstration at COMPUTEX Taipei. The COMPUTEX demonstration is the first time multiple active styluses will be used with a touch-enabled device using the USI 1.0 specification.”
