Here’s an original idea from Mobee called the Magic Numpad, a simple accessory that turns your Magic Trackpad into a full-blown numpad by applying a thin plastic film that has a numpad printed on it and it closely resembling the numeric keypad found on the wired Apple Keyboard. The $29.90 kit begins shipping in October and comes with the software, a special pen and also three Magic Films required to turn your trackpad into the coolest numeric keypad in town……………..
The Mobee Magic Numpad transforms the Apple Magic Trackpad into a powerful and customizable Numpad. Apply any of the Magic films on your Apple Magic Trackpad, install the free App and you will instantaneously get both a Trackpad and a Numpad built into one single device and 3 different layouts are available and delivered in the pack to let you customize the way you want to use your Numpad :
- Have a full Numeric Calculator Keyboard at your fingertips
- Have a full-function Numeric Calculator Keyboard plus a tactile area on the Magic Trackpad
- Have a full-function Numeric Calculator Keyboard with configurable “shortcut” buttons for use with programs of your choice.
These Magic Films are high-technology films, each of them built on an exclusive 3-layer technology, having a bubble-proof re-usable material for the bottom layer, an ultra-soft antiglare material for the top and high-quality printing in the middle for full protection. The free software will also allow you to create shortcuts to launch any app that you use every day. A special feature allows the Magic Numpad to display a calculator on your screen to allow simple calculations without typing formulas into Excel. Adding a Numpad to your Apple universe without adding a piece of hardware is a green way to achieve Mobee’s customers’ needs. It will be available in october 2011 and pre-orders are taken by company’s site.
