Cheese is magical

I had put a small package of string cheese on my laptop to warm it up, but then I noticed that the the trackpad had stopped working. Upon further investigation I discovered that the cheese was triggering detecting multiple fingers sensor.

I then performed some further experements and discovered that as far as the two trackpads I tested are concerned, plastic wrapped string cheese is just as good as a human finger for moving the cursor around.

Other things like 3x5 cards or plastic pens or bits of plastic don't trigger the touchpad but fingers or string cheese make the cursor move.

(If it matters it's individually wrapped low fat string cheese from trader joes.
