Logitech Wireless Touchpad anyone ?

October 9, 2011 | 10:03 am

Hello,

I was wondering if this multitouch wireless trackpad is HId-compatible and if anyone has tried to get the positions of fingers in with Max/MSP yet ?

Maybe it could be a decent alternative to the Magic Trackpad for Windows users.

It should be, as it has USB. It will be compatible with Windows at least, so it should appear as a device (once the drivers are installed) using the [hi] object. The nature of the data in depends entirely on what configuration it is set to. You will most likely have to confine the values based on an X/Y position.

There may also be issues with the multi-touch elements.

Might be worth emailing Logitech support.
