A Korean technology firm is currently raising money for its new line of gesture-controlled touchpads, which would eliminate the need for consumers to use a separate mouse and touchpad when operating their computers. The 'Moky' is essentially a rechargeable Bluetooth keyboard that has an invisible touchpad built directly into the keys. The state-of-the-art design allows users to make gesture-controlled demands directly over where they are typing.

The visual touchpad field is created through the use of Infrared laser sensors, which are able to sense where your fingers and moving and then translate those movements into navigation signals. The gesture-controlled touchpad is just a prototype for now, but it could prove to be a revolutionary invention for those who suffer from injuries caused by using a traditional keyboard and mouse.
