The new iPad announcement should be coming tomorrow—and we’re expecting Apple it be calling it the iPad HD. Of the many speculated features, the new tablet should definitely be sporting a more impressive screen.

That probably means that you’re going to want to take care of it. Ten One Design is hoping to keep the smudging fingerprints to a minimum with its new Blue Tiger Stylus.

Ten One Design claims that this is the world’s first pressure-sensitive Bluetooth 4.0 stylus for the iPad. What timing! Using that Bluetooth technology, the Blue Tiger promises full pressure sensitivity, palm rejection capabilities, and more. 

According to Peter Skinner, Ten One Design’s founder, this little gadget should change the way that people interact with their iPads—and not just because you’re probably used to using your finger. “For instance, when using Blue Tiger in a drawing application, the user can control stroke thickness, the color of which is displayed on the multi-colored LED button,” he says.

There’s no word on when or if the Blue Tiger Stylus will be available at retail. However, Ten One Design is looking for developers that want to partner up. If you want to get a peek at how it works (using an older iPad, of course), there’s a demo video below.
