Another interesting design concept has started it journey on Kickstarter looking to make the jump from concept to production. The iKeyboard designed and developed by Cliff Thier has been created to help assist iPad users touch typing on the iPads flat screen.
Rather than having to keep your eyes glued to your hands as you type while on the iPad the iKeyboard frees you once again allowing touch typers to look at their words once again. Sure you could use a Bluetooth keyboard but this would add extra accessories to your gadget bag and increase the footprint of the iPad considerable, the iKeyboard has been designed to increase the existing iPad’s footprint by as little as possible.
My solution is to provide the feedback missing from a virtual keyboard by “grafting,” or piggybacking, a real keyboard onto the screen. My invention—the iKeyboard—will sit atop the virtual keyboard and be lightweight. It will add little bulk and not increase the footprint of the tablet. It will be easy and fast to deploy and remove.The iKeyboard will improve accuracy and typing speed, letting tablet users do real writing. It will set the brain free. In certain settings—the lecture hall, the library, the classroom—the iKeyboard will be an essential tool rather than just a useful accessory.
