Combining capacitive touch with haptic feedback produces the feel of a mechanical keyboard but on a flat surface, which users can quickly customize with transparent swappable overlays. TouchPad as it is called has five command sets, enabling a total of 180 customisable functions that can be tailored to five different applications.
The USB keyboard is designed for storing and producing keyboard shortcuts in a clean and user friendly manner, allowing users to map functions in any program to TouchPad's keys. The add-on touchpad can be used with programs ranging from word processing to advanced design software.
The new kit does not require any special software or drivers to enable the basic functionality. The basic functionality allows up to 5 key presses to be assigned to each key including letters, numbers, symbols and modifiers. Several delay and repeat functions are also available (1mS, 10mS, 100mS, 1s, 5s, 10s and 2x, 3x, 4x, 5x, 10x, 20x). The touchpad's key LEDs can also be programed to a pattern matching a specific command set, so it displays upon switching command set.
