USI stylus will work across multiple devices, platforms.

Prominent OEMs as well as stylus and touch controller manufacturers have announced the launch of Universal Stylus Initiative (USI), an organization formed to develop and promote an industry specification for an active stylus.

The USI specification will make it possible for manufacturers to design products to a single standard, rather than the variety of proprietary approaches now in use, and it will be compatible with current notebook computer operating-system requirements. USI seeks to provide a consistent user experience while increasing the availability and consumer appeal of the active stylus through providing industry-wide interoperability and adding functions and features not supported by current styluses.
