Touch Control Your Mac with Twelve South's MagicWand
      #39992 - 02/16/11 03:52 PM

Twelve South today introduced a new Mac accessory that can connect their Magic Trackpad and Apple wireless keyboard to allow users to fully utilize multi-touch gesture to control your iMac, MacBook or Mac home theater setup. Here is more info:

Currently using a Magic Trackpad and Apple Wireless keyboard in the office? MagicWand turns those two devices into one, creating a cleaner, less cluttered work space. Using your Magic Trackpad and Wireless Keyboard at home? MagicWand has a special "H" beam to create a stable, portable input device you can use at a desk or on your lap. No more balancing a keyboard on one knee and Trackpad on the other while working from the couch, something those who have a Mac home theater setup will really appreciate.

For added control in the office, MagicWand can be used in conjunction with a mouse. Place Trackpad on one side of your keyboard and a mouse on the other. Use Trackpad to swipe, pinch and gesture. Use the mouse for more precise movements like drawing.

Setup is easy. Simply snap your keyboard into one end of MagicWand, and your Trackpad into the other. Trackpad can be positioned on either side of the keyboard, for right or left-hand use.

MagicWand is available now and retails for $29.99 at
