Meet Tap Strap, The Bluetooth-enable wearable which convert finger movement into letters

By on September 23, 2018 0 347 Views

Tap Strap, is a wearable device which converts your finger movements into letters, punctuation and symbols, so you can tap out messages using any surface as a virtual keyboard inlcuding the top of your head. the wearable keyboard is compatible with any Bluetooth-enabled device, including VR headsets, gaming consoles, smartphones, tablets, smart TVs, and computers. It is made of a soft, flexible, smart-textile which embeds an advanced sensing system into a small, comfortable strap that can be worn on either hand or on both for two-handed tapping. It will also change the way we use VR headsets. Anyone who has tried typing on the Gear VR knows how time consuming and laborious the process can be and how you have to look at each individual character on the screen to type. By wearing the TAP Strap, you can tap out commands on your leg or any nearby surface. It also solves the problem of typing on those tiny smartwatch screens.

Tap is a wearable keyboard, mouse and game controller that connects to most Bluetooth enabled devices. PC compatibility requires Windows 8.1 and above and Bluetooth 4.0 or above. Tap is engineered from advanced, bio-compatible materials which allow for free movement and comfort while you tap.  Tap comes in two sizes and has a micro-size battery which provides 8 hours of operation.

The Tap Strap keyboard will also provide a unique solution for visually impaired users who can now communicate on mobile devices with the speed and ease of the rest of the world. there is no laser-projected keyboard or visual prompt to guide you. It’s all done by using finger movements to relay characters or numbers on your screen, including punctuation marks and special characters. it is easy to learn by using the TapGenius App, a mnemonic-based learning system which combines musical and visual tutorials with a fun and engaging game that will teach you how to TAP in about in approximately one hour.
