Transparent, elegant and futuristic, Multi-Touch Keyboard and Mouse are our next generation of computer peripherals. Dazzle your friends with these cool gadgets, very well made devices which are constructed from high quality tempered glass, solid metal base and finest components. Completely wireless, together with rechargeable Lithium Polymer batteries provide you the freedom to do more in more places and not having to deal with clutter of cords.
Multi-Touch Keyboard and Mouse was designed using existing technology and have been successfully funded, this means they are commercially available. There are not many futuristic gadgets that we have featured here you can actually buy, so, this is a great news.

The main design of these devices is based on a touch screen technology or known as FTIR (Frustrated Total Internal Reflection). There are infrared LEDs which are located at the edge of the glass, in this way, they are hidden inside holes where the glass is mounted to the metal base. The low angle causes the light affects the internal glass surface, bounced around inside the glass. When you touch the glass surface, it frustrates the reflection and the Infrared light is diffused downward, out of the glass, allowing the camera to see it. There’s software that will determine the location and send information to your computer.
We love the fact that the software of Multi-Touch Keyboard and Mouse is open source. This means everyone can join to optimize its performance, for example enabling the software to detect fingers movements on the mouse to act like a magic mouse, clever!
