CES 2017: AirBar Gives your Mac a Touchscreen

Originally launched for PC, AirBar is now showing off their new device built specifically for the MacBook Air. The model that they’re showing off is for the 13-inch MacBook Air. According to the company, that is the only size they they’re going to make, for now. We’re not sure if it will work on the 13-inch MacBook Pro. It seems unlikely considering it’s built to fit the MacBook Air perfectly.

The device uses light-sensing technology to see your gestures. Because of that, you don’t really need to touch the screen. That will prevent you from getting it dirty.

The AirBar will be available for $99 and will launch in early March. They’re also planning on launching a 14-inch PC version alongside it for $69. You can learn more and pre-order one here.
