Get ready to change the way you type with this amazing device. Called Tap Strap, this new wearable tech device will turn any surface into a keyboard. It looks like a knuckle duster but instead of punches, it throws numbers and letters with physical gestures. Tap Strap slides over your fingers like a glove, and is made from a soft smart-fabric that has sensors inside to analyze finger movements.
Each of the five holes comfortably fit a finger and they can detect taps and locate your fingers in 3D space.
Each finger is designated with a vowel, so the rest of the alphabet, and the usual array of special characters and punctuation, can be input using a combination of various finger taps.
There’s no claim made on how fast you can type, but there is the company’s TapGenius App to teach you. The app is described as a mnemonic-based learning tutorial that combines an educational system for users to wrap their heads around Tap Strap’s new input style, with a gaming-style experience.
