MacRumors reports on a new iPad mini keyboard that was announced by Tactus Technology today. The Phorm is an all-in-one case, keyboard and screen protector that adds and removes tactile buttons on the iPad mini’s screen.
To use the Phorm, you simply have to slide the bar on the back of the Phorm case and the little fluid-filled buttons will emerge on the screen protector, enabling the user to feel when they are touching the keys on the iOS keyboard.
When you want to get rid of the physical keys, simply slide the bar on the back of the case to the left.
Here’s Dr. Craig Ciesla, CEO and co-founder of Tactus, talking about the Phorm.
You can pre-order the Phorm here for $99, for summer shipment.
At present the Phorm case is only available for the iPad mini, but Tactus is also looking to launch an iPhone 6 Plus version very soon, and also for iPad Air 2 and iPhone 6.
