I recently started a project at my company’s “Solution Center” and for the next 3-5 months I’ve actually found myself with a consistent place to sit… a giant monitor for my Macbook Pro, and an ergonomic seat. It’s insane. I love it. I’m getting used to using my Magic Trackpad and my Bluetooth Mac Keyboard, but I find it annoying that they arent connected.
Well, good news. Twelve South, a company that really seems to get the idea of good, ergonomic design has my back with the “Magic Wand“. It’s an amazingly simple concept, as you can see. Basically, it’s a simple plastic tube into which you clip your keyboard and trackpad so they feel as if they’re one unit.
Admittedly on a desktop you can just place the two right next to eachother without too much trouble, but if you have a Mac Mini attached to your TV, for example, and find yourself with the keyboard and trackpad on your lap often, the Magic Wand will REALLY increase your quality of life.
