Creative Modular Trackpads

The Sensel Morph is a Versatile Tool for Creative Polymaths

— May 31, 2018 — Tech
For creative people, their normal keyboard and trackpad are often woefully limited when it comes to the tasks that they find themselves driven toward, so the Sensel Morph is a computer peripheral that helps them to get more out of their devices. The modular piece of hardware is designed for people who work in almost any creative field, and it's indeed best suited to people who do creative work in more than one category.

The Sensel Morph consists of a base trackpad that looks like a bigger version of a laptop trackpad. This base does have touch sensitivity, but it's far more than a touchscreen alone. The Sensel Morph is sold with overlays -- flexible silicon gels molded into shapes -- that engender everything from typing to painting to music production.
