A double-sided fabric keyboard: Why?

Another solution in search of a problem

The people over at Eleksen are a sneaky lot. One can never tell when they'll have something new up their sleeves--literally.

The U.K. company specializes in "touch-sensitive interactive textiles," which translates to products such as the roll-up fabric keyboard we mentioned back in November. And now these magicians have surprised us again by flipping over that piece of digital cloth, revealing a second keyboard on the other side.

One surface of the double-sided USB fabric keyboard has a set of QWERTY keys for cell phones and other handheld devices, according to Red Ferret, while Side B has a calculator and media controls. Our take? We think Eleksen's R&D department has a bit too much time on its hands.
