One2touch is a foldable and portable keyboard designed for mobile users and which utilizes near-field communication technology. Users can simply put their NFC mobile phone on the keyboard and ultimately start typing away. This portable NFC keyboard gets rid of the usual pairing process we associate with using new accessories. Plus, no cables are necessary, the keyboard gets its power from the mobile phone. Doesn’t need batteries or charging!
One2touch was launched at CES in Las Vegas in January, and the first batch of keyboards will be available in Japan in May. At the innovation conference GROW 2012 taking place in Bergen 15th of March, participants can experience live demo.
