Logitech Debuts $49 Digital Crayon for 6th Gen iPad

Apple and Logitech Reveal New iPad Crayon Stylus and Keyboard Case

It's also slated to retail for $49 dollars, which is a considerable discount over the $99 Apple Pencil, assuming the user is actually interested in using a stylus at all.

Chief among them is a new iPad stylus made by Logitech. Both accessories are designed for school students keeping with the theme of the new iPad.

Alongside the stylus, Apple also announced a new rugged Logitech iPad case and keyboard combo.

The so-called "digital pencil" sports an 8-hour battery life and instantly connects to an iPad without the need to pair. Of course, it has a loop to hold the Logitech Crayon. This is pretty remarkable since that is taller than many young students.

The company further says, "Logitech Crayon is the first digital pencil designed for the new iPad and leverages technology found in Apple Pencil to deliver sub-pixel precision, low latency and support for tilt in a design that's flawless for students. iPad features palm rejection technology and can tell the difference between Logitech Crayon and a hand resting on the display so students can write and draw naturally, just as they would with traditional pencil and paper".

In addition to the Crayon, Logitech and Apple also announced a new iPad case with a built-in keyboard called the Rugged Combo 2.

Murder of Holocaust survivor treated as anti-Semitic attack
Today, French police confirmed they have two men in custody for the murder and believe Knoll was targeted because she was Jewish. The death of an 85-year-old survivor of the Holocaust is being treated as a possible anti-Semitic hate crime by French police.

Designed with input from educators, administrators and IT specialists, the updated Rugged Combo 2 case and keyboard combo is created to take on daily wear and tear inside K-12 classrooms.

The new iPad for education fits perfectly with the Logitech Rugged Combo 2.

Along with providing protection against bumps, scratches and up-to-four-foot drops, the detachable keyboard also sports pry-resistant keys that are spill-resistant - adding to their durability.

Both Logitech accessories will become available to USA schools and school districts in the summer.

Schools in the United States will be able to purchase the case and stylus starting this summer; Crayon is priced at $49.99 and the Rugged Combo 2 at $99.99 Dollars. Wider retail availability for non-educator consumers isn't now clear. More information about the accessories is available on Logitech's website.
