The question that often pops up is how thin or small can things go, but when it comes to something like a keyboard surely there is limit! However, apparently not, because the Cambridge based company CSR, have come up with what they are calling “world’s thinnest wireless touch interface” and it is very thin too at just 0.5 mm! Sure, it is a touch surface with Bluetooth connectivity, which automatically means it is thin, but nevertheless this is a keyboard that is not much thicker than a sheet of paper and that is just one aspect of what makes this cool.
According to Paul Williamson, Director of Low Power Wireless at CSR, he says in the latest press release that;
Consumers want innovative, portable wireless accessories that just work with their mobile devices. The ultra-thin touch surface we’ve developed is a perfect example of how Bluetooth Smart can give them just that. We’re committed to working collaboratively with developers using the CSR µEnergy platform to help them bring similar next-generation accessories to the market quickly.
It is still early days for this very thin keyboard, so we do not have any information on prices or availability!
