    Qii-Keyboard

    If you have ever dreamed of carrying a flexible keyboard in your pocket that could be rolled like a scroll when not in use then you are going to love Qii’s new Bluetooth keyboard concept that can be used with both smartphones and ¬†tablets once it is produced for real. The thin keyboard will feature physical keys that will give a real keyboard like feel to those who are not that comfortable writing their text messages or emails with an on-screen keyboard.

    We have ¬†a number of flexible plastic keyboards available in the market that are portable and connect to smartphones using Bluetooth but none of them is like Qii’s keyboard. The keyboard, which requires a certain amount of funding before heading to production, will have a waterproof coating, textured surface to provide better typing experience, and a simple design. The keyboard of course will feature full QWERTY keyboard keys.¬†Not only will the keyboard have waterproof coating but it will be also resistant to dirt. Moreover, the Qii keyboard will also have electronic components printed on a¬†transparent¬†film.

    Currently, to gain sufficient funds, Qii is running a Indiegogo campaign through which it aims to raise about $1,850,000. If enough funding is received the production will start and the keyboard will be delivered to those who have contributed in October 2013.

    For those interested in pre-orders and wanting to donate to this project, contributions start at $120. So, are you funding the project? Let us know!

      Wow, that’s pretty amazing. I might actually drop $120 to help fund this.

      Hmm don`t know if this is actually useful. Does not look very comfortable to type on (and no tactile feedback), so I don`t know if I would actually prefer this one over the touch screen of my phone/tablet where I can have (bad) tactile feedback with Vibration and a much better Keyboard with word prediction and auto correction (SwiftKey on Android).

      The piano layout looks promising though and of course its very small to transport.

        This is a good point, but I can see where people would like a larger keyboard to type on, plus it has a more traditional layout with a number pad. Besides, it would only be the first generation. Who knows what they could do if enough people bought the original Qii to the point where they could fund a Qii2.
