Glass Trackpad Rumours
Numerous Mac rumour sites are mentioning whispers of a glass track-pad on upcoming MacBooks.
This could be a great step forward in the user interface.
How quickly iPhone and iPod Touch users have become used to the touch screen interface.
Many of the features seen on these devices could be adapted and integrated into the trackpad of a laptop.
Inclusion of a display similar in size to that of an iPhone/iPod Touch display would fit beautifully into the trackpad area of a MacBook/Pro.
The multi-touch and gestures would soon become second nature to MacBook and MacBook Pro users.
4FrontMultimedia has come up with their interpretation of how a MacBook Pro with glass track pad could look.
Making the main screen of a laptop into a touchscreen is far from practical but a glass track pad incorporating a display is another thing all together and hopefully it’s not far from reality in the next update of the MacBook and MacBook Pro rumoured to be arriving later this year.
