While many believe it to be all but inevitable, Apple up to now, has yet to announce plans for creating a touchscreen MacBook Air. However, Neonode have decidedly taken matters into its own hands by creating the revolutionary AirBar. The nifty device latches on directly beneath the display through a set of magnets — deriving its power when plugged into the USB port. The strip then emits infrared signals, which is used to accurately track finger placement and movements. Aside from dragging, drawing, tapping, pinching, rotating and zooming through human touch, the enabled screen is also sensitive to paint brushes as well. Retailing for a price of $99 USD, the AirBar is available now via the brand’s online shop.

In other tech-related news, Apple will get rid of the iPod Nano and Shuffle.
