The AlphaUi Back-Type keyboard is being marketed as a stylish, low volume, low encumbrance alternative to using touchscreen software keyboards – and that is certainly is. Whether it is for you or not depends on how you’d feel about typing blindly, and in reverse at the same time.

The Back-Type has 24 keys and it attaches to the back of tablets in the 5-7 inch range. This of course gives the experience of writing something on the tablet a more tactile feel, without adding annoying bulk. The company’s website claims speeds of 250 characters per minute reached by most testers after just a week of use.

So if you feel like this is for you, why not pay them a visit and apply for a beta test?
