At Computex the company has shown off a sweet new tech called TouchPad-IS that is capable of accurately recognizing up to four fingers. The technology can also recognize the difference between fingers and the palm of your hand to eliminate accidental activation when you hit the track pad with your hand.

 

Synaptics is also demonstrating a new track pad that has no dedicated buttons for clicking. The track pad itself clicks providing a larger space for gesture control.
