If you’re a pixel pusher who spends their days in Photoshop and Illustrator, you probably already know every keyboard shortcut imagineable. Logitech is hoping to streamline your Adobe workflow even further with the NuLOOQ, a combination of configurable software and hardware.
The NuLOOQ Navigator is a heavy machined aluminum controller designed to compliment your keyboard. It has a rubber navring that can be twisted to zoom in or out of an image or the navring can be gently nudged to easily pan around a large layout. In combination with the NuLOOQ software, the user can also open completely customizable Tooldials that appear on-screen only when needed. These Tooldials act as shortcuts and can be used to quickly access often-used tools, filters, commands, files or even other applications.
The Logitech NuLOOQ system will be available in March 2006 for $149. (Currently only Mac compatible.)
