The Tactiva TACTAPAD– What have we here?

Postby DDinEB » 24 May 2005, 21:23

I just did a casual online search for input devices, (I forgot my actual search terms), and Google came up with this (the Tactiva Touchpad) as the top item returned. Why, what’s this!?! I never saw or heard of this item or this company.

I don’t have time at this moment to investigate or comment much more. But it looks like something worth reviewing, and I hope some of you with some time and/or interest can get the ball rolling on this topic, for now… :)

(Oh - I remember, the search term I used was "Fingerworks"!) :shock:

Looks like the TactaPad shows up as a Google Ad when you search for "fingerworks".

The current uncertainty about FingerWorks has also made me look around for alternatives to my currently dead Touchstream. Unfortunately, while there is nothing out there that is quite like a Touchstream, one thing I have come across that is quite interesting is the DX1 input system:

Mainly aimed at gamers, but has some ergonomic potential. Eerily similar company logo though ... spooky.
