The purpose πŸ…πŸ†


**Quadro lets you do the same stuff you usually do with your mouse and/or keyboard, that is to interact with your digital world and its functions, but in a simpler and more efficient way.** Did I mention fun? No? Well it's also more fun. 😜 But besides the features, its _raison d'Γͺtre_ truly is to keep you adherent to your flow and extend your potential. πŸ’ͺ You may not notice what the perduring cognitive changes you are required to make by current tools are doing to your brain, work, and consequently life. It's like getting really small sips of stress, and while they are tiny, you get them hundreds, if not thousands, times a day. 😨 Every time you activate a command with your mouse, you pass from "I need that function", to "where's the function?", to "let's go get that in the menu", to getting a bit lost in the menu (sincerely, how many times you hit it at first shot?), to finally activate that action. And with shortcuts it's not that better, as your mind fires up neurons to find the link between "Paste and match style" and "command + shift + alt + V", and that's not as strong as the link between "bananas" and "yellow". 🍌 **Thanks to Quadro, you have to reach those big colored pads in the old-school way, that is with your bare hands, like a prehistoric painter dipping its finger in colours.** 🎨
