    I suppose that it would be possible but the resolution wouldnt be that good so I think the uses would be limited. Maybe what Apple need to do is make the whole keyboard a touch screen that projects a keyboard so you can change key layouts and use it as a giant trackpad / handwriting recognition / tablet...

    I found out you can trick the "ink" pref pane into not looking for a tablet... but there is no way to tell it to see the trackpad. read: Link

    Edit* it appears that the MBP trackpad is USB... so we can bypass the problem they got in the linked post.
