The 30-member companies of the Universal Stylus Initiative (USI) finalized their specification in September 2016 and the group will be at CES 2017 this week showing off its features, including the ability to use multiple styluses on a single device simultaneously.
Widely known promoter members of the USI include Hanvon, Intel, Lenovo, Mont Blanc, Sharp, Synaptics and Wacom. Dell, Elan and LG Display are contributor members. Notably, Microsoft is not listed as a member of the group at any level.
The USI hasn't issued any new press information, but yesterday posted the video above touting the specification's capabilities and benefits. The technology looks promising and we'll keep monitoring it as it evolves and compatible products eventually make it to market later this year or in early 2018. Thanks to @ThatComicsGuy over at the TabletPCReview.com forum for bringing it to my attention.
If the USI posts any official news this week, look for it here. To learn more about the Initiative, including the roster of member companies, visit http://www.universalstylus.org/
