MagicWand connects Magic Trackpad to Apple Wireless keyboard


Twelve South (http://www.twelvesouth.com) has introduced MagicWand, an US$29.99 accessory that connects the Apple Magic Trackpad to the Apple Wireless Keyboard.

With MagicWand in place, Mac users can fully utilize Apple’s multi-touch gesture technology with an iMac, MacBook or Mac home theater setup, says Andrew Green, creative director of Twelve South. The MagicWand has a special “H” beam to create a stable, portable input device you can use at a desk or on your lap, he adds.

To set up, you snap your keyboard into one end of MagicWand, and your Trackpad into the other. The Trackpad can be positioned on either side of the keyboard, for right or left-hand use.

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, says Green. For added control in the office, MagicWand can be used in conjunction with a mouse. Place the 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.
