The Number Pad Film for Touchpad is an ingenious concept designed to convert your laptop's touchpad into a number pad. The concept is a small film that fits over your touchpad and instantly turns it into a number pad. The film is accompanied by a small computer program which, once installed, gives you all the greatness of numbers one through nine along with all of the additional keys.
The Number Pad Film for Touchpad seems to have been designed for use on Apple's laptops which are notorious for their lack of a number pad. Currently, the only option consumers have to add on a number pad is to purchase a standalone one. This costs money -- more money, it can be assumed, than purchasing a small strip of plastic film. The Number Pad Film for Touchpad was designed by Gong Huachao and Wang Hui and is a 2011 Red Dot Design Award winner.
