Game-changing tech from the world of Apple and beyond AirBar
Turn your MacBook into a touchscreen device
The iPad Pro and Apple Pencil make an amazing painting device, but they aren’t cheap. If you have a 13-inch MacBook Air and would rather make use of that for your artistic output, AirBar could come in handy. It’s a sleek aluminium bar that, once plugged into one of your MacBook’s USB ports, transforms its display into a touchscreen. It works with any input device, from an Apple Pencil or brush, to your finger or even a banana, the developer claims. It also told us it’s planning to roll out support for other MacBooks in the future, so keep your eyes peeled. $99 (about £82) includes AirBar strip website air.bar/mac works with 13-inch MacBook Air
