Qii Roll-up Mobile Keyboard: Cool Design, But Will It Be Made?

by Range

There are plenty of options for people who prefer to get stuff done on their mobile devices using an external keyboard. While I do have a bluetooth keyboard for my iPad, I rarely use one for my iPhone. It’s not very convenient to carry a keyboard with your smartphone, and it’s not that difficult to become a fast thumb-typer on one anyhow. However, if you have problems or want to do more writing, then check out this mobile roll-up keyboard.

The Qii keyboard is a full-sized keyboard that can roll up into a compact container, and can work with mobile devices. The keyboard uses a flexible electronic film and a touch-sensing technology that can detect both position and force. It’s also got a touchpad that can function like a mouse. It’s made of durable materials that can resist dirt and water, and can withstand lots of wear and tear.

Before you get too excited, the team behind this project are funding the project through Indiegogo  and are trying to raise the rather ridiculous sum of $1,850,000. It’s also very expensive for a keyboard – with the lowest cost option being $120(USD). At the time of writing, they’ve got about $12,000 banked with 12 days of funding left, so the chances that this will make it to market are slim – at least through this fundraising campaign.
