TouchFire Screen-Top Keyboard

A comment to the post about “sturdy cases” from Ann Sciabarrasi, OTR shared the TouchFire Screen-Top Keyboard, a new iPad keyboard. Created by two tech developers, Steve Isaac and Bradley Melmon, this keyboard is small and portable attaching to the iPad with corner magnets. Compatible with iPad 1 and 2, it sits on top of the keyboard:

An interesting new keyboard, this video shows it being used:

For more details visit TouchFire’s website. It’s low scale design makes it very portable and integrates with other iPad cases. I wonder how students at school will adapt to it (they probably will adapt easier that those with established keyboarding habits!)?

Thank you Ann! This is a great, portable option to a keyboard for the iPad! I am looking forward to adding this to my iPad equipment for its portability.
