Touchpad Meets Morphing Keyboard

Several sources are reporting on the new offering from the British firm Pelikon which combines a touchpad and morphing keyboard into a unique little device. “this isn’t just any old morphing keyboard, you see. Not only can the board be dynamically reconfigured by backlighting different portions of the keys — the entire surface of the thing doubles as a touchpad, which you can probably imagine has virtually limitless utility in a mobile device where the space for a true touchpad simply doesn’t exist. Pelikon already works with Toshiba on its domestic-market Biblio, but we’d love to see it hit devices around the world — in fact, we wouldn’t really mind if they just released this prototype they’re showing as a Bluetooth accessory. diNovo Mini competitor, anyone?”
