No-Key Keyboard – Future Touchboard?

Remembered the day when I saw Mr.Data from Stars Trek typing a transparent keyboard. I thought it won’t be a real thing and don’t believe it will exist in this true world. Until I stumbled on this keyboard at Yanko design, I finally know that nothing is impossible.

Designed by Kong Fanwen, I bet this keyboard will have no match for the flatness and button-less design. Based on a touch screen technology like what Apple’s iPhone adapted, you can virtually type your words effortlessly. I guess we should call it “Touchboard” instead of keyboard. šŸ˜‰

One thing that I’m not quite satisfied. Although it has a future’s adaptation, I still curious why Fanwen use the very basic of keyboard template design. I thought it will be more advance, complete with the extra hot keys which available in laptops.

A little disappointing but still, this is the greatest breakthrough for keyboard design. Iā€™m sure, with this type of gadget in our desk top, blogging on tech and gadgets will become more and more interesting! :)

    i want a touch screen keyboard

  • tony

    I was thinking to build a carpc with two touch screens on the dash, detachable from the dash; after all this hype about USB monitor, i decided to give a try. With two screens; i could use for expanded monitor or use one for keyboard. Furthermore I have a bunch of 7″ touchscreens that i was thinking of using 3 for keyboard. 2 for the letters and other for the number pad, or i could use all three for gagets on the screen like weather a stuff like that. How ever it would be a damm expensive keyboard.
    Maybe I should think it over.
