Here’s an original idea from Mobee called the Magic Numpad, a simple accessory that turns your Magic Trackpad into a full-blown numpad by applying a thin plastic film that has a numpad printed on it, closely resembling the numeric keypad found on the wired Apple Keyboard. Of course, this thing ships with the accompanying Mac OS X app that figures out where you touched the trackpad and translates your input into correct key commands in OS X.

What’s best, you can easily peel the Magic Numpad off at any time and they ship three films with different keyboard layouts for your pleasure: A numpad + trackpad, an extended numpad and a numpad with customizable keys. If you’re interested, Mobee’s online store lists the Magic Numpad with a $30 price tag, shipping in October. Or, if you’re old-fashioned, you can just pick a real numpad for your Mac for $10.
