With newly developed, freely programmable, wireless-controlling capabilities, Flow just might be the answer to the trackpad troubles of digital masterminds and luddites, alike. Designed by Senic, a motley crew of makers that includes an electrical engineer, a computer scientist, an industrial designer, and a product manager, it's a tool that "makes the things we love fast, intuitive, and fun," though "flexible shortcuts and perfect control," according to Senic.

“Hand gesture recognition, sensitive touch and precise haptics make Flow the perfect tool for anyone who wants to work, play and create in the digital world,” they continue. Flow’s 1000+ accuracy points on it’s sensitive, 2.75 inch polycarbonate touch-surface respond smoothly to hand gestures and touch. Simultaneously, the 360° of angular positioning and haptic feedback facilitate shortcuts for the expedient use of more than 30 applications, making it an interface that adapts to creativity rather than forcing users to adapt in order to control it. As a result, with just a flick of the wrist or the touch of a pinky, Flow puts greater command over quotidian and complex digital operations at your fingertips.
