New On-Screen Keyboard Design: Minuum

Touch screen keyboards are normally rubbish compared to their physical cousins, they also waste a lot of screen real estate. Finally someone has invented a practical solution that doesn’t waste space but is easy to use and fast. Meet minuum. A simple system that uses the conventional QWERTY layout we’re all used to, but doesn’t use much screen space.

The project went live today on indiegogo, aiming to raise $10,000 in 30 days. Within a few hours that target has already been smashed and will soon be double the initial aim. The design isn’t just for touch screens either, the creators have set their sights on wearable devices, this will hopefully include MYO. Have a look at the video below demonstrating the system’s great versatility, and hinting at future uses for the idea. [minuum]
