Apple Files Patent for the Perfect Keyless Keyboard



+ Add a Comment


It doesn't surprise me at all that Apple has been working on a "keyless" keyboard. As a formerly certified ACMT, I know that a large number of laptop repairs dealt with the keyboard... keys fell off and were lost, keys stopped functioning, keyboards were vulnerable to food and liquid spills... and if the laptop was under warranty, the cost of replacement or repair came out of Apple's pockets. A "keyless" keyboard will circumvent those problems and while the R&D cost of developing a "keyless" keyboard is high, Apple will recoup it easily as they get fewer keyboard-related repairs in the future.



GAH! That sounds cool, but... I think I need buttons!
