Soft keyboards are great for typing on--if you can get used to them. Many people moving to the iPhone from a Blackberry or other device that has a physical keyboard often have issues typing on the device from the getgo. There's quite a learning curve when you're learning to type on a touchscreen keyboard. Fortunately, BlindType hopes to get rid of the errors when typing on your mobile device.
They company has created a application on the iPhone to show off how the new soft keyboard works. The keyboard adjusts to the way you type, be it at an angle, or with the keyboard turned on or off. The video (embedded below) shows just how resilient it is to errors. It predicts exactly what the user wants to type, even though the typing might be completely off.
Engadget reports that the keyboard should be making its way soon to the iPhone and Android devices, although they may have to put up a fight with Apple, as they don't currently allow developers to create system wide keyboards. According to the developer, they will be submitting the application regardless, saying they'd like "to put pressure on Apple to finally allow this kind of thing."
Check out the video below to see the keyboard in action.
