MagicWand mount pairs Wireless Keyboard with Magic Trackpad

updated 04:15 pm EST, Thu February 17, 2011

Unit holds two Apple devices together as one piece

Twelve South has launched MagicWand, an accessory that combines the Apple Wireless Keyboard with the Magic Trackpad into one unit. The tube-shaped device snaps to the underside of the keyboard and trackpad, securing both to the same base. The trackpad can be positioned on the right or left of the keyboard, allowing the unit to accommodate both right- or left-handed users. Once all pieces are secured in place, the combination can be used on a desktop or a user's lap.

The MagicWand is available now, retailing for $30.

    Lap & Magic Trackpad? I think not.

    I like the idea of keeping the two pieces together, but I think it will really only work on a desk. Unless your lap has a hard flat spot on it, you may have a tough time with this. The magic trackpad has to have something pretty hard underneath it so it can physically be clicked. A lap or a leg is kind of hit-or-miss, mainly miss.

    I dunno...

    $30 for a piece of molded plastic?

    That's why I won't buy a case for my iPhone. Belkin has a nice clear plastic case for about the same price. Fortunately, Apple had that free case program a while back and I picked one up for free.

    I know it costs money to mold these plastic pieces, but still, $30????

    Turn on button left handed

    Unable to use the power button when attached left handed. Must be costly plastic.
