MacBook Pro 2018

  • MacBook Pro 2018
    More touch of genius.
  • What if the touch bar on the new Macbook Pro would extend
    to a full-size touch pad? This question was the driving
    force on this concept. It would enable a lot of new
    features while maintaining the fundamental idea behind 
    the MacBook Pro 2016 touch bar, serving as shortcuts
    and macro functions.

    Also, since it will be a touch enabled display, it could support
    the Apple pencil to allow user to finally use it with
    desktop applications.

    Allowing the keyboard area to become a touch enabled surface
    creates new room for possibilities. The touch bar area could still
    be available for shortcuts and function keys.

    Enabling the Apple Pencil to be compatible with the new MacBook Pro,
    will help creative professionals in their workflow and creates new
    applications of the touch pad area. Using the new MacBook Pro with
    third party software like Adobe Photoshop or Autodesk Sketchbook
    will become more powerful than ever before.

    The use of a touch-only keyboard requires the help of Apple's own
    Taptic Engine system to give the user the feel of physical buttons.
    It could also enable additional features like emulating a scroll
    wheel or sliders.

    This large haptics-enabled surface could also be beneficial for
    visually impaired people, for it could display Braille and emulate
    the feedback required to read it.
