All right, gotta admit that I’m freaking out just a little right now. I’m a fairly speedy touch typist, so my QWERTY keyboard and I are pals. But let me introduce you to a new kind of keyboard that will work with pretty much any Bluetooth connected device. It’s called TAP and this device puts the keyboard on your fingers instead of at your fingertips.
It can turn anything you touch into a keyboard and touchpad. Just tap on the table or your arm or the wall to use it.
It can be used with a phone, tablet, smartwatch, VR headset, smart TV or your computer.
Each time you tap your fingers or glide your thumb, a character, command, or cursor position is sent to the device.
You can use it for typing or for playing games. If you’re a two-handed typist like me, you can order two devices and use them together.
You don’t need a hard surface to use. Tap on a table, tap on your arm, or tap on your mattress. It also requires a fairly light touch.
The device comes with two apps to help you learn how use it better. Tap Genius and Tap Aloud (designed for visually impaired users.)
You can pre-order a tab keyboard now for $129.99. It comes in small or large sizes and is available in black or white. They’re expected to ship in late December or early January.
