Logitech CREATE keyboard case jumps on the iPad Pro train

Logitech CREATE keyboard case jumps on the iPad Pro train

Unless you've been living under a rock, or sleeping the past 12 hours, you would have probably heard by now that Apple launched the iPad Pro, the tablet that breaks almost all of the restrictions that the late Steve Jobs set for the product line. It's huge, it has a stylus, and has an official keyboard case accessory. The latter, of course, is an opportunity for accessory makers to also capitalize on that opening. And first on the scene is none other than Logitech with its new CREATE keyboard for the iPad Pro.

This device has a physical keyboard that's very thin, able to fold out and hold the iPad Pro up as it sits down on the surface of your desk, flat. Apple suggests that this keyboard is made with a "woven fabric" to create the structure of its keys, and that it'll work with the iPad Pro's "Smart Connector."

LG Rolly Keyboard rolls into a stick to fit in your bag

LG Rolly Keyboard rolls into a stick to fit in your bag

There are literally dozens of keyboard accessories out there for tablets and even smartphones, but most of them fall into two categories. Either they present a comfortable full-sized keyboard but are uncomfortably bulky, or they are incredibly petite but inevitably result in tangled or cramped fingers. Since our mobile devices these days are just as useful for work as they are for play, LG has tried to design the Rolly Keyboard that fits both types. Its solution? Have the keyboard roll into a rather fat stick.

iOS keyboard app Signily lets users type with sign language

iOS keyboard app Signily lets users type with sign language

Signly, a new keyboard app for iOS, offers something that almost no other app does: the ability for deaf users to type and communicate with sign language. The app comes from ASLized, a US nonprofit group, and was created with the help of deaf people, and uses American Sign Language (ASL). Typing is done with hand gestures making different signs, in a style similar to the default emoji on iOS. There are even options to change the hand's skin color, much like the recent iOS update that did the same to face and hand emojis.
