Windows Windows 8 is still in heavy development, and still has a long way to go before it ends up on our desktops, laptops, and tablets. One of the major concerns is how Windows 8 is going to deal with a traditional keyboard and mouse/trackpad combination - especially on non-tablet computers where touch input is pretty much not an option. While Microsoft assures us it's all good, Synaptics decided to see what it, as trackpad maker, can do.

I remember that. I liked the hardware idea but to me having multi-finger swipe gestures seemed wasteful of all those touch points that could have been used to move multiple sliders at once. They even implied that would be useful earlier in the video.

And it seemed somewhat unintuitive. I can't remember what the gestures did and I can't even figure out what they must have been. And not everybody has that many fingers.
