Always wanted to tap on your desk and make it perform as a keyboard? The Tap wearable Bluetooth ‘keyboard’ does just that. Pull the rig onto your fingers, hook it up via Bluetooth to a PC, smartphone, tablet or Smart TV, and you’re good to go. The company says an hour of your time on a special app will help you learn how to type properly, while the strap you wear with all the sensors comes with a battery life of eight hours. There are added sensors on the thumb that allow mouse functionality, for example to scroll, point and click.

Looking at the Tap promotional video, there’s certain parts where you would think it could actually be a spoof, but at $150 a pop, the Tap is very real. While we are not quite sure why you would need a wireless virtual keyboard to work on a smartphone or tablet, its true application could actually be in the VR/AR space where physical keyboards get in the way of a decent user experience.
