After seeing this MacBook nano
in the MacBook nano thread, i had the idea of an external Mac TouchPad.
I think you all know Graphic/Pen Tablets from Wacom and others.
What about a similar device with Multi Touch technology?
We know that Apple bought Fingerworks
a while ago and they ventured into similar devices.
With this Mac TouchPad you could work in your OS like on the iPhone, with two or more fingers.
You could drag, resize, grab and scroll through windows and all those nifty features we like using on the iPhone (I only saw one, but I got to play a while with an iPod Touch).
It would at least need 10.5 (10.5.2 is on its way), so who ever wanted this (if any) would need to upgrade to the shiny new Leopard.
It's tiresome to ALWAYS use to mouse, so it wouldn't be a complete replacement, but an enhancement.
Maybe it would need some kind of display (showing your display's content on the TouchPad), but I think it could work without this feature.
I think one would be able to recognize the corresponding area of one's display content on the TouchPad.
Maybe it can be foldable or something else, so it would not take that much space while taking it with you.
What I would like to see next week is the new Laptop all the rumors are about. If it at least has a dedicated graphic card.
Would'a, should'a, could'a.
