Do You Want Touch Typing On a Tablet Enough To Endure This Chorded Keyboard?

By Andrew Liszewski on at

If tablets had one Achilles heel preventing them from personal computing dominance, it would be their awkward touchscreen keyboards. But the makers of the ASETNIOP keyboard think they've found a better alternative. An on-screen keyboard with just ten keys that lets you access every letter of the alphabet with multiple keypresses, like playing chords on a piano.

The demos make it look easy to use, but the system seems pretty convoluted and getting the hang of it will most likely require a lot of practice. But what do you think? Does the ASETNIOP have even a remote chance of replacing the classic QWERTY layout? Will anything ever? [ASETNIOP via Dvice]
