    Inklet for MacBook Pro

    This is an intriguing bit of software for Macbook's. It turns the trackpad into a tablet.

    Inklet by Ten One Design

    YouTube- Inklet Demo with Photoshop

    I have never seen anything like it before and I wonder if there's also a Windows one by someone else, trackpads being all pressure sensitive. Though considering the size of most windows laptop trackpads it wouldn't be very usable.

    I downloaded the demo and whilst it isn't that great with a finger as the stylus, I suspect it would be very good with a pen. I've tried my Wacom Intuos pen and it won't work so there's something special about the Pogo pen they also sell (must have a built in finger).

    Would be good to have a little tablet on the MBP when travelling, so I might invest in this pen and software I'm thinking as it's not very expensive.

    Pogos like all of the other mac suitable stylus have a capacitance (?) built in to resemble the human body.

    Be nice to try but I'm not quite ready to update to Snow Leopard just yet. I still have to update my VM stuff which migth affect my windows/quicken prog.

    Talking

    Well I jumped in and bought a Pogo Sketch (from eBay as postage was a lot better) and also bought an activation code for Inklet. I think I was being gadget deficient and needed a fix.

    Anyway, it all works very well. I have a 13" MBP and Photoshop CS3, NX2, Aperture3. The trick is to set the trackpad area to cover the area to edit on the photo. For the money it will definitely do for editing on the road where a bit more than finger control is needed. It's certainly no Wacom but I think it's actually good value for money.
