FingerWorks iGesture: Get Rid of Your Mouse


Posted by Oscar M. Cantu Categories: Peripherals


iGesture by FingerWorksAt first glance, the iGesture by FingerWorks looks like an oversized touchpad. Although it does work like a touchpad when it comes to moving that pointer around on your screen, it’s much more than that. This 5 x 6.25 inch touchpad puts an end to all the clicking, key stroking, and carpal-tunnel that comes with using a mouse. That’s right, with a simple stoke on that pad with your fingers, you can perform functions such as:

  • Cut
  • Copy
  • Paste
  • Undo/Redo
  • Tab/Back Tab
  • Back
  • Forward
  • Forward
  • Scroll
  • Zoom In
  • Zoom Out
  • Find(In page)

There are many more features this nifty little pad can do, including many key-stroke shortcuts on your favorite games, Photoshop, and Maya. All the pre-defined gestures can be found here. Besides all those pre-defined gestures, the iGesture allows you to customize your favorite key-strokes through the use of an application. FingerWorks claims that the iGesture works as a Plug-And-Play device on Windows, Mac, and Linux computers; however, if you want to define your own personal shortcuts, the included software needs to be installed. FingerWorks has other products utilizing the same technology such as a keyboard, the TouchStream LP, which replaces your keyboard and mouse. Both of these products are not easy on your wallet at $129 for the iGesture and $339 for the TouchStream LP. These gadgets are sure to revolutionize the industry and are sure to catch the attention of many users that rely heavily on keyboard shortcuts.

Hmm.. I think this might get a little confusing at first, but it may be pretty useable afterwards.
