We developed Sensu out of our desire to have an authentic brush to use with our favorite drawing and painting apps on iPhone and iPad. Of course, Sensu works well on other capacitive screens we’ve tested. Over the years, we’ve developed a lot of artist brushes and have learned tons from some of the best brush makers in the world–careful craftsmen who understand the subtle properties of hair taper, flexibility, and strength. We’ve learned to build brushes that yield perfectly to different paint mediums and various surfaces.
Patent-pending Hair Technology
In our search for the right conductive hair, we tested various metal and metallic fibers. None had the true feel of a real artist brush. An old brush-making friend in Japan introduced us to a brand new hair technology being developed for the cosmetic industry. Traditional synthetic brush hair was being infused with conductive properties to help fine powder release from make-up brushes as they came in contact with skin. This synthetic hair could be made in the diameters and tapers we required for Sensu to feel just right.
Like your iPad, the Sensu brush is truly portable. The protective cap becomes the handle for the brush when in use. When you’re done painting, simply insert the brush tip into the handle chamber and push closed. The brush is now safe for travel and a rubber stylus nib is exposed that can be used for other navigation.
Thank You Kickstarter Backers
We couldn’t have done it without you! Bringing a new product into the world is no small thing, so having all our backers helping us financially and with encouragement, we have been able to make Sensu a reality.
Who loves ya? We do.

Sensu is Two Very Useful Tools in One
The rubber stylus is exposed when the brush is closed. This stylus is great for sketching and writing or as a general navigation tool. Grasp Sensu near the nib section and pull it out of the protective cap. You will reveal the capacitive bristles of the artist brush. Insert the rubber stylus into the cap and the cap becomes a handle for your brush.
Care and Feeding
It is pretty easy to keep Sensu happy.
- Be careful replacing the brush in its protective cap.
- Don’t use real acrylic or oil paints with it.
- Same goes for solvents, don’t use them.
- If you do bend a bristle, carefully remove it with tweezers.
What in the world does this brush do?
Sensu uses patent pending technology to allow you use as an artist brush on your iPad (or other capacitive device). Draw, paint, navigate. That is all it does, and it does great.
Does Sensu require batteries or recharging?
No. The special fibers of the sensu brush do all the work.
Does Sensu need an app?
Sensu does not require an app but you will want apps for creating your artwork (we have some suggestions on our homepage). Of course you can use Sensu for any navigation on your capacitve device. We have also heard it works great with music apps.
Do you have a guarantee?
Absolutely. We offer a 90 day guarantee.
