You’ll just need to install MUJA app for Android or iOS on your smartphone with supports over 100 mainstream games, and allows you to map keys to the four touch-sensitive area on the touchpad. As I understand it, there’s no feedback when you touch one of the four zones on MUJA, so it may feel a little awkward during use. It’s difficult to say without testing it.
Handscape Inc. launched an Indiegogo campaign for MUJA a few days ago with a lowly $2,000 flexible goal, and so far the project has not attracted to many backers so the $49 Super Early Bird reward is still available. Shipping adds $8 more, and you should expect your reward(s) to ship sometimes in April 2019. Retail price will allegedly be $99 which seems pretty high for such accessory, considering MUJA is basically a Bluetooth keyboard with four (touch-sensitive) buttons.
