Nice technical demo. Without looking at the code, A sweet idea would be to combine this with Duet Display. @rahulda1 ?

@futhey Definitely had a few people ask about it. But I wonder how many would actually use it (only seems worth it/ergonomic if you are using the iPad as your primary display)

@rahulda1 Understandable, might be wise to hold off until one can be sure the feature takes off :)

I fail to see a macbook there? What am I missing?
@mrahmadawais He means any OS X device.

@mrahmadawais the ipad is acting as the touch bar for the Mac in the background

@mrahmadawais @jarvvski It would work for a Macbook, that's just not what he used for the demo.

Love this. I posted an issue on GitHub as feedback - a software Mac keyboard underneath the touch bar would make this a killer app for me; I'd totally control my iMac using my iPad as my only keyboard. For extra credit, Mission Control-style Spaces management and fast switching in the leftover area above the keyboard and touch bar. Hope you make this into more than just a demo app!
