The next keyboard and mouse for iPads and computers.

December 1st, 2011 by almanzar Leave a reply »

We’ve covered Kickstarter projects before such as the waterproof watch kit and today; we’re going to feature two of them. They are both keyboards, both aesthetic and both amazing ideas. We have no doubt that both products will receive the public funding they need for sale and distribution.

The first project is geared toward iPad users and more of a keyboard accessoryTouchFire is placed over your iPad’s onscreen keyboard and will allow you to feel where each key is.

The gadget is very lightweight and is attached to the inside of your iPad’s cover. TouchFire folds with the cover so it is never in the way and is transparent so you can se the keys underneath easily.

Although TouchFire attaches itself using magnets built into the iPad 2, it works just as well with the original model by using a standard case.

The designers behind the project describe their invention:

TouchFire puts the “touch” back into typing on an iPad. You can now feel where the keys are and rest your fingers on the home row, so you can type as fast and accurately as you can on a laptop. You can even type without looking at the screen. TouchFire cushions your fingers as you type, something both touch-typists and two-finger typists really appreciate.

The project’s goal of $10,000 has surpassed expectations, raising a whopping $87,436 and climbing. There is still time to pledge and support the invention for as little as $1, although by pledging more ($45), you are essentially pre-ordering the device when released.

The second Kickstarter project is a type of glass keyboard and mouse combo that screams “Apple”. The group behind the invention is asking for $50,000 worth of pledges. They aren’t too far along, raising over $43,000 so far, with a little over a month to go.

The Kickstarter page describes the futuristic device:

These elegant well made devices are composed of quality tempered glass, a solid metal base, and the finest components. They are designed using simple existing technology and have no moving parts. They have rechargeable Lithium Polymer batteries and are completely wireless. The tactile sounds and lighting can be turned on or off per the users’ preference plus they are coffee and doughnut resistant!

The multi-touch keyboard and mouse combo do not have a name yet, but by donating $10, you are able to suggest one. If your name is chosen for the device, your award will be the invention itself.

glassmouse

Since the technology behind the combo is more advanced than standard keyboards out there, it is no surprise a higher pledge will be required to pre-order the device. In this case, a pledge of $250 will ensure you receive the wireless mutli-touch keyboard or by pledging $100 more, you’ll get the mouse as well.

Both inventions have been thought out and are well on their way to becoming popular accessories. Visit their Kickstarter pages to learn more or to submit a pledge.

  1. Hey there! I think your blog is great! I’m ever keen to find high quality information and when I find it it makes me happy. Many thanks and please maintain writing such good content!

  6. This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.

    Between me and my husband we’ve owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I’ve settled down to one line of players. Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.
