Would you like a multi touch keyboard? Like a keyboard with a laptop type trackpad that can handle 1,2,3, and 4 finger gestures?

Would you like to have this come with new Mac Pros and iMacs?

What do think it would be like?

Anybody have any mockups or pics of the old fingerworks keyboards?

I think I'd much rather see a mouse with multi-touch gestures implemented on the surface. I'm fine using trackpads on laptops, but I prefer to use a mouse when I can.

Apple has had the tech for years. Check out the Fingerworks Touchstream LP.

I would like a bluetooth version of the keyboard with the new trackpad, which would complete couch browsing via projector for me. Right now I am using an iphone as the mouse.

After using the three-finger multi-touch on their laptops, I find the mouse to be frustrating. I ended up programming forward and back buttons on mine. I think some sort of a touchpad is coming for the desktops they way they keep incorporating gestures.

They have been adding gestures to their lines very slowly, I assume to make it a natural and desired feature so it is already understood "why" by the time they really get into gear.
