The Tamagotchi Touch Bar is the function we’ve been waiting for

The MacBook Pro Touch Bar is a wonderful and versatile thing that's ideal for making any designer's life easier by providing instant, easily-identifiable shortcuts for all of your creative apps. But when you're not using it for Photoshop CC shortcuts, don't you ever wish that you could turn it into the home for a virtual pet? One that you can feed and nurture and cherish and then forget about for a few days then find that it's died?

If you ever had a Tamagotchi and you miss the incessant demands of a virtual charge that depends on you for its continued existence, then you're in luck, as you can now get your very own virtual pet for your Touch Bar. It's the perfect excuse for adding a Touch Bar to your criteria when hunting for the best Black Friday MacBook deals.

Jim McCauley

Jim McCauley is a writer, performer and cat-wrangler who started writing professionally way back in 1995 on PC Format magazine, and has been covering technology-related subjects ever since, whether it's hardware, software or videogames. A chance call in 2005 led to Jim taking charge of Computer Arts' website and developing an interest in the world of graphic design, and eventually led to a move over to the freshly-launched Creative Bloq in 2012. Jim now works as a freelance writer for sites including Creative Bloq, T3 and PetsRadar, specialising in design, technology, wellness and cats, while doing the occasional pantomime and street performance in Bath and designing posters for a local drama group on the side.
