“Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication!”
– Steve Jobs
My name is Gordon Adkins and I invented the original GPIK thumb stylus in 2007. This was prompted by my desire to operate a touch screen device with one hand, so that I could multi-task more easily.
While developing this product, I was made aware that there were many physically challenged people in the world that cannot operate a touch screen device efficiently and effectively. Whatever those specific cases may be, they may simply need some assistance in operating touch-screen devices rapidly.
