A keyboard that has just 5 buttons, rather than 50. Instead of typing each key individually, you press chords just like on a guitar. Built right into a phone case, it allows users to type without looking and with only one hand.
Designed with amputees and hemiplegics in mind, it simplifies a traditional keyboard down to a beautifully intuitive and effortless interaction. Furthermore it helps people with visual impairments to type and read: Typecase uses haptics in the buttons like a digital braille, offering a discrete alternative to the more stigmatising voice-to-text methods.
