    assuming he's using a laptop then yes.

    lonegreywolf posted a link to a logitech touch pad the other day,

    Logitech 910-003057 Wireless Rechargeable Touchpad T650 - 2.4GHz, Unifying Receiver, Advanced Optical Tracking

    very nice looking peice of kit and at a reasonable price too.

    don't think there are mice that do gestures though.

    If I were to suggest one, it would be the Logitech touch pad gazz9496 posted. Touch gestured mice are iffy for gaming. I have the Microsoft Touch Mouse, which supports Windows 8's touch gestures, but it isn't the best for gaming.

    I use a Microsoft Touch Mouse, I have close app, charms, app switch, Start Screen and scrolling setup as gestures which makes navigating W8 a breeze, once you get used to it. The left and right mouse clicks require more pressure than I'm used to and the right click often triggers as a left click. For right click you have to click closer to the right edge of the mouse which is a pita. Overall I like it and it is functional but I think I will be trying the Logitech Touch mouse to compare mostly because of the pressure required to push the buttons.

    Thanks for the opinions. I am gamer so looking at the response the windows 8 mouses might not be a great idea. But I may give the Logitech version a try.
