Is SnapKeys the future of keyboarding? I have not been a fan of any of the 3rd party keyboards. Swype has been the most popular and it never felt natural to me. I recently saw a video about a new key-less keyboard called SnapKeys. At first it looked like another gimmick, but after seeing 5th graders blind typing with ease, I was impressed. For the first time SnapKeys is revealing how it works, and intomobile filmed a hands-on demo at CTIA. The principle of SnapKeys is that people do not want their keyboard taking up a large percentage of the screen. This was always a complaint of mine as I have always leaned towards slide out keyboards. They are billing it as II for imaginary interface. The interface consists of 6 transparent blocks over the content that are easily reachable with your thumbs while the device is in portrait mode. They have been working on this technology for 11 years and it may soon be available to all. They are working with device manufacturers and carriers to preload the software. Their plans are for it to be in the core of the operating systems and not as a standalone application. We may see the first devices with SnapKeys in the 3rd quarter of this year. Check out these videos and let me us know what you think. The first video is the intomobile hands-on demo and the second video shows the students at Lovell Elementary School. Is SnapKeys the future of keyboarding?
