If you really want to take a stand against the constraints of your tiny smartphone screen, you can even use Tap Strap to type on your head...

It seems ironic that we all chortle about the days when mobile phones were the size of a chihuahua, but yet we’re now stuck with the problem that our smartphone screens are too small for our clumsy sausage fingers.

Nevertheless, here we are in the year 2016, recklessly jabbing away at our phone keyboards and relying on the fickle mistress that is autocorrect to sort out our careless thumb-typing errors. And until our fingers evolve to the size of Twiglets or we work out how to send text messages using Stephen Hawking-inspired pupil-sensor tech, we’re stuck with this manmade problem for good. Unless…

Yep. As usual, there’s some smart tech for that problem. Meet Tap Strap – a wearable Bluetooth keyboard that turns absolutely anything you tap into a magical typing surface. With Tap Strap, you can now send a text message, write an email, or post a status to Facebook – all outside the confines of that microscopic phone keyboard of yours.

The cool thing about Tap Strap is that you can type practically anywhere with it. With embedded sensors that monitor the mechanical information of your hands and fingers and transmit it to your phone via Bluetooth, Tap Strap can recognise what you’re typing even if you’re doing it on the top of your head, on the kitchen worktop, or…y’know, the dog’s head. In Tap Strap’s own words, it turns the tactile world into a keyboard.

Tap Strap is compatible with pretty much any Bluetooth device you need to type on – be it an iPhone, Pad, Pod, or an Android phone or tablet. If you’re just one autocorrect disaster away from deeply offending a loved one, you can sign up here to join the waiting list and become an early user of the Tap Strap.
