The configuration app looks properly botched given the default WinForms icon, components and a complete lack of a UX consideration, so I'm gonna assume it was created by the engineers as a prototype for testing and it's not really an end-user piece of software that they would dare to ship with their products.

What I find funny is that the screen on my Blackberry Storm that I had like 10 years ago clicked like an actual button when you pressed it. They were the only company using that technology back then. Fast forward to 2018/19 and Samsung implements it into the Galaxy line of phones to get the tactile feedback of an actual button press when you press the home button. It was pretty slick how they figured out how to use it on just that part of the screen instead of the entire screen being a button like Blackberry did.

I get it, but...the trackpoint is far superior to any touch pad. Not the only reason, but definitly a big reason I only buy ThinkPads for myself. I wish every laptop offered a track point option. The middle button on a ThinkPad takes care of scrolling and zooming, what more do you need? I've never understood touchpad gestures and multi-finger actions just get in the way. FSR Tech might be nice when it can replace capacitive digitizers on smartphones and other touchscreens.

Changing the subject slightly, it's good to see sanity is coming back to laptop screen aspect ratios. I stopped being interested in laptops since the screens went 16:9 with a large chunk of plastic between the screen and the keyboard. That didn't make any sense, and I can't believe it has lasted over a decade.

People still use touchpads? As soon as I got my laptop, I bought a bluetooth mouse to go with it. Oh, who am I kidding, people LIKE touchpad phones, so of course they'd still use the ones on laptops.

if industries were collaborative rather than competitive, a single standard would work. it'd be similar to how high-end system integrators work - the parts are (mostly) standardised from different suppliers but they integrate it as a single system this tech looks super cool though - i was excited about 3d touch before it went away but a true pressure-sensitive and accurate trackpad sounds amazing. i can see both gaming and productivity uses for it, especially if it has multitouch

This technology would be great in smartphone screens. Maybe they could make a phone touchscreen that works when it's wet or make the sound coil vibrate when your thumb slides over an icon so you could navigate by feel instead of having to look at the screen.

Trackpoint needs to go back on J key, but even stuck stupidly on no one's index finger at GH, it's better than trackpads. I use a precious wonderful WIRED USB Logitech thumb trackball for more no-wrist-motion pointing and that works well even in gaming. Mice are for text work (easier to control the buttons for cut/paste) and trackpads are for gammons.

Resistive touch screens might make it be cloudy, but not resistive track pads 🤦 Ironically, (larger) fsr's are sometimes replaced by capacitive sensors as "newer" tech. I'm not sure whether capacitive sensor density really makes that much of a difference since it's not binary... Who is going to make a piezo touchpad?

Great video, and genuinely interesting technology, but why the obnoxious, click-baity title? Apple hasn't "lost" anything. Honestly, it feels kind of insulting to your viewers that you think we'll only click on a video if you play in to childish brand-fanboy tribalisms.

FSRs have been around for many decades, but the problem is that eventually the compressed layer doesn't spring back to its original thickness and it stops working properly. I would be suspicious about the time-to-failure of these track pads. Also, don't leave your credit card on this track pad when you are shopping on-line, the built-in magnetic coil could scramble the data on the card's magnetic stripe.
Henk van het Internet
As a touchpad power user i just can't imagine it being a better experience than my E540's touchpad. Its a regular pad suspended on effectively 4 switches. So its a pad with deep travel. The only thing it lacks is a dedicated right click button.
