New App From Florian Kräutli That Can Turn Any Surface Into A Keyboard For Your iPhone

This ingenious new app from Florian Kräutli uses an iPhone’s Accelerometer to pick up the location of a tap and translate this information into typed letters on a keyboard – meaning that you can turn pretty much any surface into a keyboard for your iPhone!

He has called it the Vibrative Virtual Keyboard and it works by using the accelerometer to measure vibrations on a surface which are then mapped by Kräutli’s software. The software picks up the point of origin of the tap and enables the phone to “see” where you are tapping away. This means that your surface can become a QWERTY keyboard for your iPhone!
