LAMY AL-star black EMR stylus
The digital age is in full swing. Lamy has joined in and has reinvented a popular classic: the LAMY AL-star Black EMR. The marvel of ergonomics has given it new inner workings with electromagnetic resonance technology. This technology enables the pen to write and draw on a tablet or smartphone without the use of wires or batteries. Its outstanding precision will make you feel like you're writing on paper. Whether you’re working at the office, studying, engaged in daily life, or gaming, the LAMY AL-Star EMR is the perfect companion for every writing and drawing situation. The cap protects the cartridge from outside influences and the integrated clip ensures that the pen is always ready to go. Be inspired by the myriad possibilities of digital writing!
The design of this digital input pen for tablets, smartphones and notebooks is based on the LAMY AL-star rollerball pen. Endowed with Wacom’s patented EMR technology, the LAMY AL-star black EMR doesn’t need a cord or battery to function, and never needs to be charged. There is no difference from traditional writing instruments in terms of haptics, ergonomics and usage, so no retraining is necessary.
A nib for every surface
The nib of a digital pen is the crucial element for best simulating the writing feel of a traditional writing instrument on paper. Lamy offers an assortment of nibs made of various materials since there are a number of different types of screen surfaces currently competing on the market.Smooth surfaces:
The PC/EL nib is a pointier nib and is ideally suited for smooth (glossy) surfaces. Nib radius: 0.35 mmMatt surfaces:
Writing on matt surfaces creates a similar feel to writing on paper. The POM nib is a rounded nib and is ideally suited for these surfaces. Nib radius: 0.7 mm
When protective films are used, a choice must be made between PC/EL and POM, depending on the glide properties of the film surface. The right choice can only be found by trying out the tips. The rule here is that tips made of PC/EL are suitable for hard and smooth (glass-like) surfaces and tips made of POM are suitable for hard and matt (paper-like) surfaces.
For many devices, there are both stylus-enabled and non-stylus-enabled versions of the same model - if your device did not come with a stylus from the manufacturer, it is best to check again with the manufacturer's customer service whether your device is compatible with EMR technology.List of compatible devices can be found here.
The LAMY AL-star EMR comes with spre nibs which can easily be replaced. We added an instruction video on how to change a nib.
