Painted with a Nomad Brush.

The Nomad Brush was the first capacitative paintbrush to market in 2010, and it continues to dominate as it iterates. Don Lee's latest creation, the Nomad Compose ($39), has two brushes on either end: One is the typical Nomad brush; the other, a slanted buzz-cut brush option that resembles the foam nibs of early stylus experimentation—except made up entirely of bristles. The result cures most of the gripes I had with the original Nomad Brush—while the longer bristles still make navigation and writing next to impossible, the slanted buzz-cut brush is more than capable in both these areas. Painting, however, is just as spectacular an experience as with the original.
