TAP is a bluetooth device that lets your fingers control and communicate through your devices, computers and gaming systems, unlike any keyboard on the market before. No more bulky keyboard to lug around, no more wires while you work, because now you can simply slip a strap over your fingers like a grouping of connected rings and you can control your phone, laptop, whatever. It’s pretty cool.
With TAP you can move your mouse, tap in corrections to documents as you write, or send messages, or even play games, and all you need is one hand. It works on any surface. It helps to be comfortable typing on a keyboard so that you know where each key is, but it’s not necessary to see or feel your keyboard anymore, which makes for a pretty wild jump from standard and conventional keyboards that almost makes TAP look like magic.
Upon initial use, it may take a little bit of practice to get use to the system, but once you’ve done that, the TAP works pretty well. I really like using it for my writing, though I wish I could type with both hands for faster flow. TAP uses a proprietary alphabet system that makes texting and working faster with one hand. To learn, TAP has created a TapGenius app and TapAloud (optimized for audible learning) that helps as a how-to game, which I found to be a pretty cool learning feature. It can take around 90-minutes or so to become fluid with their keyboard system.
Overall, I found the TAP to be a fun, futuristic invention that has a lot of versatility and potential to forcing the next generation of keyboarding and computing to the next level. If you would like to learn more about TAP, click here.
