Netly: The Third Screen

iphonekeyboard_190Now that I’ve read on nytimes that someone has created a physical keyboard that attaches to an iPhone, I think I speak for many when I say I need this thing.

It was originally designed by Toronto-base Mobile Mechatronics to help people transition from a physical keyboard to the iPhone’s virtual keyboard by training them where the virtual keys are and to build muscle memory.

But the trainees thought the comfort and familiarity was too good to give up.  No doubt hard core apple fans will see this new addition as a sign of unspeakable weakness.
