Instantly turn the Magic Trackpad into Mobee's Magic Numpad

If you're one of those who miss the number keys in the Apple Keyboard, fret no more.  Mobee intoduces a solution to your problem, the Magic Numpad.

from mobeetechnology.com

The Magic Numpad is a set of three films with custom number layouts that you attach to your Magic Trackpad.  Yes, you need a Magic Trackpad for this to work.  It is compatible with both Mac OS X Snow Leopard and Lion.  

Mobee says all you need to do is to stick the magic film of your choice on the trackpad, install the application and voila! You instantaneously have a magic trackpad and numpad in one single device.  You can easily switch between the trackpad and numpad in three ways: tapping on the upper right button; use the F6 key on the keyboard; or use the menu on the software.

A downloadable software also allows the Magic Numpad to display an onscreen calculator that can do simple calculations.  Mobee also included a textile for cleaning your Magic Trackpad and the films, an application card to reduce bubbles, as well as a marking pen so you could customize the look of your numpad.

The device is now available for pre-order on Mobee's site at $29 each and will be available in October 2011.
