Keyboards have evolved so much over the decades. From its beginnings as a successor, to the old-school typewriter, to physical ones found in computers, virtual ones in touchscreen devices like Smartphones & tablets, it has gone a long way of incorporating technology as well as ergonomics of efficient typing. You might think, will the keyboard we use today ever evolve into something radical in the future? That’s the big question that iKeybo has given an answer in the present. iKeybo presents itself as the latest evolution of the keyboard, featuring a laser-projected virtual keyboard layout that adapts to your preferences. The future of the keyboard is here.
We have seen virtual keyboards on our everyday devices like smartphones and tablets. The nature of a virtual keyboard is that it changes its layout based on the current on-screen content. But iKeybo wants to set itself apart from the on-screen virtual keyboard we see and use everyday, as its portable form lets you make any flat surface a typing platform for any of your devices. iKeybo uses a state-of-the-art, high-resolution camera sensor that provides optical information for the laser projector. A patented keystroke detection technology built into iKeybo uses double-liner sensors for faster keystroke calculations with minimal power usage, resulting in accurate typing for prolonged sessions.
Do you frequently switch between multiple keyboard layouts? iKeybo provides a seamless and quick typing experience, thanks to its support for four different standard keyboard layouts, with support for more layouts coming in the development pipeline. It supports English, Spanish, Arabic, and Chinese keyboard layouts so you can easily type in these supported languages. Providing a projection size ranging from 5 to 12 inches, you can choose the keyboard size you want. It’s also easy to switch from one keyboard layout to the next – just configure the layout settings on the iKeybo mobile app for iOS and Android devices. In addition to the switchable keyboard layout feature, iKeybo also provides a virtual music keyboard – great for recording music sessions or just want to experience playing your favorite pieces on any flat surface. It supports layouts for piano, guitar, drums, and many more, which can also be configured from the app.
Not only iKeybo works as a virtual keyboard with support for multiple layouts and musical instruments, its built-in 20,000 mAh lithium-ion battery works as a power bank for your portable devices. The battery lasts for 10 hours of continuous keyboard use or charging time.
Taking advanced laser projection technologies in a small and lightweight form factor you can bring anywhere, iKeybo is a radical approach to the modern keyboard.
