Inklet turns your trackpad into a tablet

I always loved tablets not only for drawing and retouching but for general navigation. I found them more precise and faster to use than a mouse. The only problem with tablets is their size. Even though I use a small Bamboo I'm reluctant to carry it along every time.

The trackpad for general navigation is a close contender especially if you use one of those new MacBooks or MBPs with large trackpad areas. The only problem with trackpads is that fingertips aren't a very precise tool.

It looks like Inklet may provide a good solution overall giving you the option to have precise navigation and portability. Inklet turns your trackpad into a tablet. It will never be as good as a full size tablet, but good enough for 95% of tasks. Check out the video below.

For Inklet you need to have a MacBook with multitouch. Unibody silver MacBooks with black keys will work, as will the latest white MacBooks with rubbery bottoms (for lack of better designator).

Interesting. Never liked tablets, but this might work because you could jump between the mouse and the trackpad depending on what features you wanted.

Any idea on the price?

Just $25, but test it before buying!

Love it! At the office I use a 6x8 Wacom, but for size reasons I can never take it with while travelling, which I do a lot - and boy, do I miss it.

This is the perfect solution!

That's really cool. Too bad my Toshiba has such a small pad, but I'm planning to buy a Macbook.

Anyway very clever and cool, but wonder if it will work decently.
