MaskTouch Makes Your Apple iMac an iMac Touch

Apple has stayed away from bringing touchscreen input to the iMac and Macbook computers. Here is a new device that gives your iMac a touchscreen interface.

MaskTouch allows your kids to use an iMac like an iPad. Apple has basically said that they will never make an Macbook or iMac with touchscreen. There are though great uses for an iMac Touch. This is what a Chinese company already knew years ago.

Aogek released in 2012 the weirdly named Zorro Macsk, which added touchscreen functionality to 21.5-inch iMac. Now the company has redesigned and also renamed their iMac touchscreen input device. MaskTouch adds touchscreen functionality to 21.-5-inch and 27-inch iMacs.

The new MaskTouch supports ten touch-points and ran smoother and faster than the previous models. The MaskTouch frame attaches on the bezel of your iMac and connects via a short USB cable. It is held in place via magnets. The device is using infra-red to detect your fingers on the iMac screen. The iMac screen is not covered by MaskTouch. It is just a frame not a sheet of glass that would interfere with screen quality.

There is no installation required it just works after connecting the device. MaskTouch supports all gestures of the Apple Magic Trackpad.

Aogek will launch an IndiGoGo campaign to sell the new MaskTouch in August. The price has not been set yet. The previous model sold for $199.
