The next time you conclude that the Macbook’s new Touch Bar is only good for Apple commercials and Doom videos, remember that someone is using it for snappy Rocket League text chat.

DemiPixel is the one working the macros, using a piece of software that lets you customise your Touch Bar’s behaviour. It...looks about as impractical as most Touch Bar ideas, to be honest, since it asks you to take your hands and eyes away from what they were doing, but the novelty is probably worth the milliseconds.

Maybe more useful than the chat is that it looks like he’s put menu commands in there too, so he can fly through matchmaking without even moving his mouse.
