Get ready for the next generation of laptop TouchPads, including customizable gesture controls, with Scrybe, part of Synaptics Gesture Suite 9.4.
Well beyond multi-touch capability, Scrybe allows users to initiate complex PC tasks with simple TouchPad interaction. For example, Synaptics claims through Scrybe users could highlight a word in a document and then launch a Web browser and perform an immediate search by merely drawing a question mark on the TouchPad.
Other new TouchPad functions available in Gesture Suite 9.4 include multi-touch gestures for media control (play, stop, rewind, fast forward), and Windows 7 System gestures.
Synaptics claims that Scrybe will work with many current multi-touch and single-touch TouchPads. The technology is currently available at the Scrybe site (http://www.uscrybe.com/) for Windows and Linux users to preview for themselves.
The entire Synaptics Gesture Suite 9.4 is available to PC OEMs through Synaptics.
