Evolving the Notebook PC with GesturePad

The Computer PC !

Any Device with Computing Abilities and an Integrated Screen of Size 7 Inches or more can be called a Pad, Tablet, Netbook, Laptop, Notebook or Desktop according to the size and use.

In this Professional, Serious and Productive Work can be done.

The All-in-One Low Power Desktop PC or the Nettop clinging behind the Monitor are the “Heir Apparent” of your Erstwhile Power Hungry Tower PC.

The 14-15 inch Notebooks with or without being convertible to Touch-Tablet is the clear winning computing device.

The Mousepad and Mouse have to be Integrated in the side of the keyboard. The Touchpad has to be replaced by some Invention.

Evolving the Notebook PC with GesturePad

We could slide a tray on the right of the Laptop, which becomes the Mousepad or GesturePad. A low profile flat wireless mouse docked at the bottom of the Laptop (wireless charging on dock) is removed and put on the Pad. The Mouse is back …..life is much much better.

It could also be just a GesturePad as big as a mouse pad, A sturdy thin unbreakable reinforced poly carbonate pad that slides into the Notebook when not in use.

To use it, keep the entire palm on the pad and make Touch-Screen like Gestures, The three main fingers all can tap to simulate click/double-click and even the page scroll with middle finger.

Computing Conclusion

An Embedded Device less than 5 Inches is a Portable Communication and Gaming Device only. This is not good enough as a Computing Device.

What we now need is the GesturePad that slides from the right of the Laptop along with TouchScreen Laptops that have already arrived.
