Is this actually going to be used?
I honestly can not say if it will be bought by studios or not.
But the fact that both Microsoft and Dell have nearly the same tool,
and that Wacom also has the ExpressKey Remote that you can freely move
on the surface makes me believe the trend is that we are going to see
more similar devices.
(side note: I have no insights in MS, Dell, nor Wacom product maps).
MS has integrated the tool in its latest Creative version of Windows
(or whatever it is called), so I guess this is not just a one of.
