`Keyboardless` keyboard in the offing
New York: What if you can type on any surface to get rid of the pain of mobile phone typing? With the AirType project, this is a near possibility.
A Texas-based hardware and machine learning startup, AirType is developing a "keyboardless keyboard" accessory that allows you to type on any surface for your phone.
Unlike projection keyboards, the AirType project has no visual component.
It uses a pair of cuff-like sensor units that go around your hands and over the knuckles.
The units track your finger moments to detect which keys you are striking, or would strike, on your `invisible` mobile tablet keyboard.
According to the developers, the small AirType cuffs clip onto your tablet like a pair of friendly barnacles.
The accessories would also come with an app that incorporates dynamic text correction and prediction, developers added.
According to the Air Type website, the system will learn to adjust to your typing habits.
The project is now in the prototype stage.
