A keyboard without the keys

Touch-sensitive buttons follow newest trend

Akihabara News

If the iPhone ushers the phone industry into a new generation of touch-sensitive buttons, keyboards might be the next to follow the trend. A company called AMEW Digital (we've never heard of it either) is trying to get out in front of that curve with its TSK-VX7 wireless keyboard, which features a full set of touch keys in a compact frame. It's still too big to fit into your pocket at 11 inches by 4.3 inches and about half an inch thick, though it's certainly smaller than any standard keyboard. If you're really looking for portability, you'll probably want to consider a fabric or foldable version. But if you do go with this version, Akihabara News points out that you can at least eat your lunch without worrying about cleaning between the keys.
