Sesamouse adds trackpad gestures to Magic Mouse

updated 07:15 pm EST, Wed January 20, 2010

Sesamouse imitates real multi-touch gestures

Calf Trail Software has announced Sesamouse, a new utility designed to extend the gesture capabilities of the Magic Mouse. The software works by imitating multi-touch trackpad gestures, enabling control over the rotation and zoom functions in gesture-capable apps. The utility also adds vertical swipe recognition, while supplying more advanced multi-touch programs with information regarding the positioning of each finger on the mouse surface.

Sesamouse requires Mac OS X 10.6, although the software utilizes several undocumented system features which may not be supported by future Mac updates. Because of the potential compatibility issues, the application is currently available as a free download.

Calf Trail will also accept donations for the utility, with all proceeds said to be contributed directly to helping rebuild small businesses in Haiti.
