I am basically a software engineer-turned-entrepreneur now looking after my family business of Shipping & Logistics. But for me, wildlife photography, and capturing God’s beautiful creations through my camera, is a serious Passion that keeps me alive in the true sense of the word.

You see, after years of research (and a whole lot of sleepless nights) our engineering department concluded that jacketed, solid-core fiberglass is more durable than the compression-molded variety some of our competitors use to make their hammers.

THE ADONIT JOT STYLUS CAPTURES THE PRECISION OF A CALLIGRAPHER AND THE STROKE OF AN ARTIST ON A TABLET.
If you’ve attempted to write and draw on your tablet, you’d know how difficult they can get: (1) The fat rubber tips of conventional stylus pens block your view and produce thick, crude lines and (2) the pressure of your wrist on the tablet’s surface often leaves unwanted marks on your digital pad.
