Where iGesture differs from a conventional touchpad is that it’s hand-sized. Conventional mouse-style functions likes point, drag and click work, but when you apply multiple fingers, you can activate features like scrolling, zooming, finding, back and forward in Web pages, file operations, game mode and more. It works equally well for righties and lefties as well.
Fingerworks founder and CEO John Elias said that the iGesture Pad will soon have customization utilities available for it that will enable users to map any gesture to function in their favorite apps. “It will even be possible to enable password generation by secret gestures known only to the user,” said Elias.
The iGesture Pad is a touchpad adaptation of FingerWorks’ MultiTouch technology. The iGesture Pad works with Mac OS 8.6 or higher, including Mac OS X, and costs US$179.
