Air Type: Introducing a Keyboardless Device for Tablets

If you are tired of having to carry an extra keyboard for your tablet, there is a new device in development for keyboard free typing. It is called Air Type and is basically a cuff-like design that attaches to the top of each hand. Ingeniously, it wirelessly translates your finger movements into readable type.

The device can be used on any surface and is no different than any keyboard. The team over at Air Type is busy perfecting the hardware but you can subscribe for updates on their site. Check out the video below to see how it works.
