One of the things the new MacBook Pros are criticized for is their lack of a touchscreen. Touchscreens are modern day screens that is almost a must-have for every laptop. Sure, the MacBook Pro 2016 offers a Touch Bar which is a touchable ticker that acts as a function bar. However, with the rise of tablets and smartphones, using touchscreens has become almost like an instinct to people.
With that, most non-touch laptops are deemed inferior to touchable ones. Of course, this is a matter of preference, but if you're one of the people who have troubles getting used to a non-touch laptop like the MacBooks, there's this one product that's pretty much for you.
AirBar Touchscreen Sensor
The AirBar is the accessory every touchscreen lover is looking for. As a summary, it allows your non-touch laptop to actually become a touchscreen laptop. This accessory is powered by the USB port and it is magnetically attached to the bottom of your screen. With it, you can perform every gesture there is that you would do on a regular touchscreen.
The AirBar emits an invisible light field that senses gestures from your fingers or gloves. The AirBar can even detect touches from a paintbrush. The best thing about it is that it doesn't require installation.
AirBar Touchscreen For MacBooks And More
As per GSM Arena, the first Apple laptop to support the AirBar is the MacBook Air 13". If you own this laptop, know that you can pre-order the AirBar compatible with it for just $99. Shipment will then start in March. If you own a different MacBook, do know that the AirBar will support more MacBooks within the first half of the year. Visit AirBar's site if you want to purchase.
For Windows users out there, you'd be glad to know that the AirBar will work for your devices as well. If you own 15" Win-10 laptops, you can get an Airbar that perfectly fits your device. It's actually even cheaper than those for the MacBook Air. AirBar for Windows is sold for only $69.
