It can support up to 20 simultaneous points of contact, which means that you and at least one other user could be manipulating a Lemur interface using all the digits on both hands. Four discreetly positioned switches occupy the upper right-hand corner of the device, which are designated for looking from left to right respectively accessing system settings and displaying a list of Lemur interfaces stored on the machine, with the two remaining buttons used for Lemur navigation. The Lemur uses its Ethernet connection to communicate with the outside world. Onboard settings for the Lemur are quite straightforward and are distributed across four on-screen pages.
