You’re probably reading this post right now from a laptop but, what if you could make the most out of your device? We’re living in the age of speed, everything’s fast but we want everything to be even faster, we want to push those technological boundaries as far as we can. So, what if there’s a device that can change the way you interact with your laptop, that can speed up your work saving you some of that precious time? Well, luckily, there it is, and it’s called Nums!

However, I want to mention right off the bat, before I get into its features that, for now, this device is only available for the MacBook series of laptops from Apple and the Surface series from Microsoft.


Your laptop already has a touchpad, but you’re only able to use it as a mouse replacement, but Nums allows you to do so much more with it. As a life-long laptop user, I have to say that I love my laptop’s touchpad, it saves me so much time since I don’t have to reach for the mouse anymore. I can go from the keyboard to the touchpad in seconds, allowing me to shift between writing and navigating easily, making the whole working and browsing the internet experience very smooth. If you’re like me, you probably couldn’t live without your touchpad, but the magic doesn’t end here since you can update it with Nums.


But how many things can it do? Well, you know those small, additional numeric keyboards that you can buy and use for accounting, games or anything else you can think of? Well, Nums can easily do that, without having to move your hand away from the laptop and then back to the touchpad when you want to move your mouse’s cursor. But wait, there’s even more. You can launch your favorite apps and websites directly with a single swipe, without having to search for them anymore. As you may already know, your trackpad can deteriorate over time, but thankfully, this tiny device can also protect it since it’s scratch free.


If I said it once, I’d say it a thousand times, for any device, no matter its purpose, the design is critical, it has to be pleasant to the eyes. And, you’re going to stick Nums to your laptop, you don’t want something big and ugly that destroys your whole design experience, you want something that blends in, something that you barely notice.


When they say ultra-thin, they are certainly not joking since the glass is only 0.26mm thick and with ink specially designed for them of only 0.001mm thickness, plus, it’s completely transparent, making it look like it’s not even there.


Speed is the name of the game, the faster you’re doing something, the more time for yourself and your loved ones you win and this device is certainly going to save you hours in the long run. If you’re thinking of claiming yours, you can get one for as low as $39 in pre-order, and they will also launch international retailing sometime this year so make sure to keep an eye out.


All the writing content is original, but I take no credit for the pictures which come from the site of the manufacturer.

Great hunt @guyfawkes4-20! This hunt has been verified and approved by the Steemhunt Moderation Team. Great job! Happy hunting.


  • Cheap. At Kickstarters the haga offered is $ 7 investment to get this tool. However, I do not know the official price.
  • Easy installation. Just paste on Trackpad, install the default program, and you are ready with this tool.
  • Cool, this is a very thin film transparent.


  • Nothing. But for those who only have a small trackpad, this will not be useful.

My Personal Opinion:

  • This is a "PERFECT" innovation and I just saw it now. With a thin film glass that is implemented on the trackpad and bundled with a particular application, this makes it really nice to use.
  • Usually our performance will be too long if using laptop default keyboard because the rules of arrangement of numbers is at the top of the line from the left right.

Nice Hunt!


  • great gadget for office workers (since I downgraded in size on my office laptop there was no place for the numbers on the side which is way faster typing)
  • easy to use (just place it on your trackpad and download the driver and you are ready to go)
  • customizable gesture based quick launch enables you do quickly open apps, folder,... or execute shortcuts
  • fair price


  • none for this product
