iKeyboard — touch-type on the iPad


Cliff Thier's Kickstarter brainstorm has already tripled its goal with 45 days to go.


What is it?


In his own words, "My invention, the iKeyboard, addresses the one drawback of a tablet computer — the impossibility of touch-typing on its virtual keyboard."


"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."

I'd like to try it.

If the iPad is so wonderful, why does it need a dozen accessories to make it feel like something it isn't? I don't get it. But then again, I don't have an iPad.
