Modern laptops are often designed to be as portable as possible, but this often comes at the cost of the standard numpad, thankfully the NUMS Numpad offers a simple and effective solution for returning this set of keys to even the most compact laptop. At its core, the NUMS Numpad is a simple sticker that sits on the laptop's trackpad. The sticker doesn't interfere with the function of the trackpad and manages to augment the trackpad's stock abilities.

Controlled by simple swiping functions, the NUMS Numpad can be easily toggled between trackpad mode and numpad mode. While in the numpad mode, the interactive sticker registers keystrokes, with audio feedback, to provide access to a standard numeric keypad. The NUMS Numpad can also be programmed with specific shortcuts for regular use.
