All you have to do is adjust the nib of the stylus and you’ll be ready to go.
And there is no stopping there, the stylus is also seen to have a built-in light sensor to read real-life colours and apply it to its digital counterpart. This sensor can be used to pick up the color of real-life objects so that you could use it to sample that specific hue to your digital artwork.
