Haptic Antics: Apple’s Rumored Retractable Keyboard

If this rumor provided by AppleInsider is true, then Apple is creating an iPhone/Apple Tablet keyboard that retracts when necessary. This would fix the issue with the iPhone’s touchscreen keyboard being hard to use – if when entering a URL, a series of 26 bumps were to appear, it’d be a lot easier to enter the data. Then, when you’re ready to go back to clicking and dragging, the bumps would vanish.

Wow, I’ve never spent so much time outlining something that’s a complete rumor, but I’m excited at the very idea of this technology. It’d be like trapping your very own Odo in a cell phone!

I’ll be honest: I’ll take any excuse whatsoever to play video of Odo from Deep Space Nine.
