Minuum Debuts What Their Keyboard Will Look Like on Google Glass

The third-party keyboard Minuum has already made an impact on the Android tablet and phone markets, but its creators are now looking to expand their services to other devices. In a blog post today, Minuum said that smart glasses will now have the same comfortable typing experience that the keyboard company has produced elsewhere. Minuum released a video showing how its unique in-line keyboard works with taps and slides along Google Glass’ touchpad. 

The biggest challenge in developing a Google Glass keyboard is the lack of screen space that can be interacted with. To fix this problem, the Minuum keyboard will be in a single line that works with slides, taps, and word prediction to get the job done. This is the direction they will be moving forward with, but at the end of the video, they show a few proof-of-concept ideas that would be unique to Google Glass.

Typing through eye tracking plus projecting a virtual keyboard on your arm for typing, which are just a couple of the ideas shown, sound like amazing concepts that someone out there definitely needs to do.

What do you think of bringing a full keyboard experience to Google Glass?

    trying to type on Glass most certainly will be a tedious affair!

    Does Google Glass have a slomo feature? I want to see my fist as it smashes the face for invasion of privacy. My personal constitution.

  • LA Jones

    Only someone who uses google glass would have the poofta hair “style”.

    The biggest challenge was actually getting some one to go into public with that rat nest on top of their head

        It looks like Stan from south park when he takes off his hat

      I fully support people being able to wear their hair any way they want. It is a free country after all. However, the caveat is that you can’t look like a dork. Sorry Glass Explorer, your friend looks like a dork. See what I did there? I tied it back in to the article… sorta… in a roundabout way…

      • flosserelli

        Simply wearing these will make you look like a dork. No stupid hipster doofus haircut needed.

    • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

      Yes his hair cut is real.

      • Kane Desousa

        That hair cut defies gravity.

  • ReturnOfTheMack

    That guy looks like he has a giant toupee on his head

  • Justin Foster

    In my opinion this keyboard makes more sense on wearable devices than on Regular mobile devices.
