Designed for mobile phones and other mobile devices, has four invisible keys, each with between six and seven letters, and other for numbers and other signs. Users press to write and the system, they say, is right in 92% of cases. A system that hopes to facilitate mobile computing by allowing users to write with invisible buttons instead of using the keyboard, which normally occupy much of the screen.
SnapKeys calls it the keyboard without keys and has reached an agreement with PhilipsElectronics for marketing, according to company executives. Both income divided by halves. The success of the Apple iPad shows that people want more portable devices, SnapKeys said, giving as example the advertisements of various companies in this regard.”The market is shifting to mobile computers, so they are leaving the tablets”, they said.
The invisible keyboard has four keys (two on each side of the device’s screen), and each has between six and seven letters. There are other keys for numbers, punctuation marks and other symbols. At first, the location of the keys on the screen, but the company believes that users will quickly learn where are the keys, so you no longer need. The invisible users press the keys with your thumbs and the system guesses the words.
SnapKeys said that the English version has some 100,000 words and succeeds in 92% of cases. If the word is not correct, you can change. The system is available in all European languages plus Chinese. SnapKeys and Philips have begun to contact major companies in mobile phones and computers on your keyboard invisible.
“We are in the process of reaching agreements. It will take several months to reach the market,” said CEO SnapKeys, Benjamin Ghassabian, who explained that the system works on all devices with Windows, Symbian and Android. “There is a fundamental problem when entering data on mobile devices,” he added. “The keyboards were made for fixed devices, not phones. And the screens are not meant to be a route of entry of data, but output,” he concluded.
