    Maybe an alternative to trackpoints or touch screens?

    Found This doodad on think geek.

    I reckon it would perfect built into a centre console, and use it both as a Mouse,a nd for macro type shortcuts to apps?

    Thought it might raise a little interest

    Thought it may have been more usefull in the centre console, than reaching over to the screen while trying to drive, to switch apps?

    I think my issue with it would be that I have enough trouble trying to find a place in my console for an LCD that large, finding a place to put a 7.1" x 5.5" pad is right out

    And yea, damn its expensive.

    I was thinking down by the centre console.

    Near the gear shift between the seatbelt buckles.

    A more natural place to reach down to, than trying to reach across to the actual dash itself if you have a built in screen.

    but yeah, your right. When I first posted, I didn't notice the price.

    I don't think I imagined it could actually be that expensive.

    Mind you, when the intelimouse explorer first came out, and I spent 35GBP for it (about 50USD), people thought I was crazy, but look, price has only come down a little, but everybody has an optical mouse, ad many have good brand ones that are still fairly expensive for what they are.

    You could get a Fellowes Internet Touchpad for $20. It's smaller and comes with the "Gesture" Technology software built in. Plus it's a hell of a lot smaller.

    Good find though.
