Instructions for Scriba
A guide on how to use
the Scriba and its many

functions

Holding Scriba

Ergonomics were imperative to the design of the Scriba. It was designed on the basis of providing ultimate comfort and control. For best results, rest your fore-finger on the rubber upper-grip and your thumb on the lower-grip like you would a pair of chopsticks.

Pairing

Like any Bluetooth device, Scriba needs to be paired to your mobile device and app.

 

Scriba makes this really easy, fully squeeze and hold until you feel a gentle vibration.

 

Scriba will be instantly and automatically paired to the foremost app.

 

If Scriba does not appear, please check to ensure that Bluetooth is enabled on your device.

 

Scriba will automatically enter sleep mode after a sustained period of non-use.

Drawing

When scriba is paired with your chosen app, a further squeeze and release will calibrate Scriba to your conditions.

 

Scriba can now be used to control features such as brush size using our unique Squeeze-Motion interaction.  As you squeeze, the body of Scriba will flex in response to your touch and the amount of bend is measured to control your chose feature. Simply, the harder you squeeze, the thicker the brush or line.

Clicks

Like any Bluetooth device, Scriba requires pairing activation with the desired partner application.

 

To pair Scriba fully squeeze and hold until you feel a gentle vibration.

 

Scriba will be instantly and automatically paired to your app.

 

In some cases you will need to check the app's Bluetooth settings.

 

Scriba will automatically enter sleep mode after a sustained period of non-use.

Changing tips

Although we have designed Scriba to minimize tip-pressure, and therefore tip wear-and-tear, Scriba will require tip replacement from time to time.

 

Silicone tips pick up grease from your device's screen, however it is really easy to install a new tip.

 

Simply unscrew the aluminium cover and swap the worn tip for a fresh one.

 

Replace the tip and screw the cover back on.

Haptics

Haptics (or haptic feedback) uses vibrations to provide information to the user.

 

To guide you through your digital experience, Scriba provides a tactile notification of your on-screen actions with a gentle vibration, depending on the app and action being performed.

Charging

Scriba has an incredible battery life -over 200 hours of constant use and over 6 months on standby- however it can also be easily recharged.

 

To do so simply remove the aluminium end-cap and plug the supplied micro-USB cable into Scriba's charging port and a USB port.


Scriba should be fully recharged within two hours.

Smart-Lock

You won't always need to constantly change brush thickness and Scriba features the ability to intelligently lock at a particular brush thickness. We have called this feature "Smart-Lock".

 

If a consistent stroke-weight is maintained for two seconds Smart-Lock will automatically activate and Scriba will notify you with a gentle vibration and maintain that thickness. Fully depress again to release from Smart-Lock.

 

Smart-Lock is indicated on (red), or off (grey) under the settings menu. When the brush weight is locked it can also be fine tuned using the slider bar.
