A new IndieGoGo project has emerged that has began catching the media’s eye, The Minuum Keyboard, and for good reason. IndieGoGo is like the famous Kickstater website where people post ideas for projects and ask people to fund them with the promise that they will be the first to try the project if it ever comes to be. The Minuum Keyboard is a project on that website and as soon as I saw it I immediately funded it so that I would get to try this amazing keyboard out as soon as possible.
What exactly is this keyboard you ask? It solves the mobile phone keyboard’s biggest problem, the screen real-estate it takes up. No matter what app your using a keyboard in on your phone it always takes up about half of the screen preventing you from being able to type and see everything else on the screen at the same time which at times can be quite an annoyance. With Minuum that is no longer a problem, this keyboard is one third the size of your typical keyboard and looks nothing like it. All of your keys are in one straight line at the bottom of your screen for a streamlined typing experience that will supposedly change the way we type. You may be saying to yourself especially after looking at the above picture, won’t this make it more difficult to type? The answer is no. The Minuum keyboard has a built in specialized auto-correction algorithm that will allow highly precise typing even when you hit the wrong letters so there is no need to always hit the correct letter.
The whole point of this project is because the mobile keyboards we use today are just outdated, they been around for so long and haven’t changed and in reality they need to and that’s exactly what the Minnum Keyboard Project has set out to do. Who knows, maybe all mobile keyboards will look like this in a couple years.
