Another way to interact with your computer. The TactaPad allows you to use your fingers to open menus, move objects and scroll without using a mouse. Your hands move over a pad and are shown semi-transparently on your computer screen. Your fingers feel different sensations depending on the interaction at the time. An interesting idea. Currently it has only been made for the Macintosh; Windows and OS X is in development. The product itself is not yet available for sale, but they estimate it would cost around $1,000.
