    It looks kinda cool but I'm not sure what the real use would be. Why not just use touch or the stylus?

    There are several reasons why this is useful for me:
    - some of the websites I use for reference have internal navigation that is not touch enabled; the on-screen touchpad let's me use these sites without a mouse or type cover (e.g "hover menus")
    - the desktop utilities are easier for me to use with the precise pointing device
    - I can use Photoshop entirely without a keyboard or mouse with this
    - I also use this on my 8 in Dell Venue; makes desktop utilities and programs quite easy to use on the smaller device
    Lastly, I just thought it is cool technology...
