Tap Strap: The Wearable Wireless Keyboard | Internet of Things - Evolving Science

Meghna Rao, MSc writes, Often, due to reasons such as driving, being stuck in meetings, causing disturbances to those around us or simply seeming rude, we find it difficult to pick up our phones or laptops to type out our memos to communicate.

The post-millennial generation has discovered a solution to this dilemma where it will now be possible to send messages just with the use of tactile senses on spaces. Wouldn’t that be convenient?

Introducing Tap Strap: a flexible, movement-sensitive keyboard made of a smart-material that can be wrapped around all the fingers of either hand with ease, as it fits like rings or fingerless gloves. Tap Strap helps you type on any available surface — tables, the floor, a book or your lap. This movements will in turn be relayed onto smart devices. The concept is simple in that each digit on the hand acts as a vowel and a combination of presses make the other letters, symbols, special signs and punctuations. Currently, there are 3 font sizes and 31 finger taps recognized by Tap Strap, one of these being three taps of the thumb to turn the machine on...

At the exponential rate that tech developments are being made, we’ll soon be saying goodbye to voice control and QWERTY, and welcoming virtual keyboards such as Tap Strap.
