That looks to me like it's just a printout placed under the plastic screen of a Graphire model. Pretty, but not a "mod" so much as a slight decoration.

The tablets are designed to have things put under the plastic. I have a friend who puts sketches under there instead of scanning. I think he's crasy personally.

Talking about mods... The area used by the mouse is almost the entire tablet, while the pen uses only the center rectangle. So i wonder if it´s possible to make the whole area be used also by the pen. Maybe a hack in the driver... Any info about this?

The reason that happens is the sensor for the mouse is in the center of the mouse itself... almost like the tip of the pen is dead centered in the mouse... so even though the mouse seems to go off the rectangle, the center of it is still in the rectangle.  There are no physical sensors outside that rectangle to allow you to make the pen area larger.  You either get a bigger tablet, or learn to deal with it ;)

yeah, I have to switch to a normal mouse to play...say...Half-Life 2 because it doesn't have enough usable area on the tablet for me to play comfortably.
