Tablet users that find typing on a flat touchscreen a little awkward, might be interested in a new style of keyboard that has been designed to be used with touchscreen tablets.
The Touchfire has been created to provide a slim physical keyboard that lays over the top of the tablets touchscreen, providing raised keys to aid with touch typing and finger positioning.
The Touchfire keyboard is made from silicone and provides a lightweight alternative to carrying a full sized Bluetooth keyboard case or separate keyboard to type on. Watch the video below to learn more about the Touchfire project and see it in action.
The Touchfire is currently available for Apple’s iPad tablets, but you can expect the unique keyboard to arrive on other devices in the future.
“With Touchfire on your iPad, you can feel where the keys are and rest your fingers on the home row without accidentally triggering the touch screen. You can now type quickly, accurately and comfortably – amazing! You can even type without looking at your iPad’s screen. Touchfire cushions your fingers as you type, something both touch-typists and two-finger typists appreciate. Typing on your iPad is no longer a pain.”
Touchfire is now available to purchase for $49.99, directly from the Touchfire website.
