Loupedeck is a brilliant new photo editing console for Adobe Lightroom and it can certainly take your photo editing to the next level. Loupedeck makes your editing faster, improves ergonomics and most of all, it lets you be more creative.
Loupedeck replaces the mouse and keyboard, and it works with Apple and Windows operating systems. “simply plug and play”.

There are similar products available in the market as well such as the Palette which has a customized modular design.
