A new gadget comes to radically change the way we use messaging services on smartphones and tablets. It’s a keyboard that you can wear on your fingers, created by a British producer of software and computer items.
Tap Strap is an intelligent strap that you put on your fingers to turn any surface into an imaginary keyboard, which can be connected to mobile devices. The gadget is as comfortable as a fingerless glove and the material it is made of includes sensors that monitor the movements of the fingers.
The intelligent belt has five holes, each corresponding to one finger. Each finger triggers one vowel from the alphabet and the movements of your fingers as over an imaginary keyboard will help the device guide you in a 3D digital world of fast message writing.

Tap Strap comes with a mnemonic application dedicated to the smart wristband, also called APP TapGenius, and is a good way to familiarize yourself with the device.
Named and designed by the British company Tap Systems of IT products, the device, made of a flexible material, has motion sensors incorporated, that analyze and recognize fingers’ movements. In other words, exercised on a surface, like a table, a desk, a piece of furniture and even your own body, the gesture to press the keys of the keyboard lets you send the text to your smartphone, tablet or PC and even to a Smart TV or a set-top box, and if you want your keyboard to work better, you can use simultaneously two Tap Strap devices. The Tap Strap connects to Bluetooth terminals.
The system is triggered by a triple beating of the thumb, but the user must really learn to use the device and what movements and taps of the fingers correspond to specific keys or commands, before using it as the only method of writing a message (for iOS there is an app devoted to this phase of training). Each tap corresponds to a character or a command.
The manufacturer has developed a mnemonic soft, TapGenius Game, a game that allows you to understand and use the device in an hour. You’ll learn how to write fluid with TAP. This game is only available on iOS, although Tap Strap will be compatible with Android, or any device that has Bluetooth connectivity and Bluetooth keyboard support. The technology adapts to all languages.

The real difficulty lies in the use of the device, because the Tap Strap intends to test users’ memory. You need to know by heart all the established gestures. Seeing the alphabet contains 26 letters, you need to memorize 26 gestures (without any special characters or punctuation).
Currently, Tap Strap is intended only to some users from San Francisco, but, by the end of 2016, this accessory will be sold worldwide at the price of $119 (about 106 €).
Should the average working Joe get Tap Strap?
If you’re on your phone every day writing messages, then Tap Strap will help you do it faster. It’s also a great device for people that have constant business meetings but still need to use their phones or students that don’t want to be seen using writing messages during class. Although the gadget makes it easier for you to write messages, we wouldn’t advise you to use it while driving.
