The endless mobile keyboard debate: physical versus digital. BlackBerry advocates and other old-school tech geeks swear by one while literally everyone else has moved on to the other. Tactus Technology thinks there’s no reason why we can’t have both—in the very same device. Physical keyboards that magically raise out of an otherwise flat screen are a dream the company has had for years, and they’re finally ready to sell you on it.
I have heard too many educators mention that typing skills could be lost because the students do not have tactile response using tablet and phone devices. This sheath for iPads appears to be combatting that issue. It will be interesting when the first devices are built with them embedded.
