TAP, the wearable finger/chord keyboard, is available for pre-order. I wrote about this device in the prototype stage back in May of 2016. I said then that it might make sense, and now the company is ready to release. TAP reminds me first and foremost of the Atreides battle language from Dune. In the books, the language was used to communicate by tapping your fingers on someone else (while optionally having a different conversation with your mouth). When I watch TAP in action in the video below, it’s how I’ve always envisioned Frank Herbert’s idea. TAP works with a chord metaphor. They slip over your fingers and map your finger movements to chords that represent letters. Simply tap away to type wirelessly…anywhere. In any event, they’re available for preorder for $129, and each comes with a charging case. The company said they’d begin shipping in late December. We’ll be testing these puppies out.
