If it wasn’t already exceedingly apparent, the team behind Minuum wants to slap a keyboard on everything. Not content to fiddle with Google Glass or the Samsung Gear 2, the developers behind the predictive keyboard for Android revealed a new project today – a keyboard designed for circular smartwatches like the Moto 360.
The keyboard, as demonstrated by the GIF below, moves letter keys along the bottom half of the screen and places word suggestions at the top. A backspace and shift key are the only other adornments, which is good because space is at a premium on screens of this size.
While the keyboard is still in development, the folks behind Minuum believe it could be perfect for situations where voice input is not viable or appropriate. Whether typing on a smartwatch is much of an improvement, however, remains to be seen.
