Demo of the Magic Trackpad that was just released from Apple. Apple on Tuesday announced its newest input device – the Apple Magic Trackpad. The product is nearly identical to the trackpad embedded in Apple laptops, but this is an external, multi-touch surface that supports all the swiping and pinching gestures made popular by the iPhone.
Intended to show you the different gestures and ease of use. The Magic Trackpad’s system preference pane includes video demonstrations of how to perform each gesture. The video below goes though each of the gesture tutorials. Watch for yourself how the finger gestures are performed.
To use the Trackpad, you need to install a software update that Apple will release later Tuesday. The software update enables full multitouch and gesture customization, including tap-to-touch and program-launching clickzones. Even without the software update, the Trackpad works like a regular non-multitouch trackpad. While Apple geared its full suite of multitouch gestures toward Macs, the Magic Trackpad will perform in its basic functions when paired via Bluetooth to a Windows PC.
The Apple Magic Trackpad is available for purchase on apple.com for $69. Check out new prices and buy it from Amazon.
