Track the touch input of your Mac Multitouch Trackpad

Jan 8, 2010 - 1 Comment

If you’ve ever wondered what your Mac Multitouch Trackpad is doing, download this fun little application. It tracks multitouch input and shows you just how sensitive the multitouch surface really is, detecting up to 11 input points, and also knowing the surface area. Not the most useful app in the world it’s certainly a fun way to see what your multitouch is up to and to get a glimpse of the technology behind the scenes of our favorite laptop computing surface. Multitouch trackpad Mac required (works with the Magic Mouse too apparently), and this supposedly works on some 2008 MacBook/Air/Pro models as well but I’m not able to test them specifically.

    Author is kidding when he says:”Not the most useful app in the world”
    It’s incredibly useful for what it is supposed to do.

    Now that I see what the track pad is doing ( exactly what I wanted an expected)
    All I hace to do is figure out why I have such a hard time highlighting a word like in safari.

    Is there any facility for audio feedback for a click, like a click sound?
