The Multi-Touch Keyboard and Mouse is Stunning

The Multi-Touch Keyboard and Mouse sports the classiest peripheral re-design yet. Made completely out of tempered glass, these computer accessories look more like home decor than hi-tech gadgets. Sleek and sophisticated, there is more to these designs than their looks.

Designed by Jason Giddings, an aerospace engineer and CEO of Giddings Product Development, the Multi-Touch Keyboard and Mouse is based on touchscreen technology known as Frustrated Total Internal Reflection (FTIR). Through the strategic placement and use of cameras and LED lights, the mouse and keyboard interprets touch location and sends the appropriate information to your computer.

The Multi-Touch Keyboard and Mouse is currently on Kickstarter in order to raise $50,000 to get this project off the ground. If successful, Giddings hopes to open an assembly-line factory that will also provide some much-needed jobs in the United States.
