A fully functional keyboard can be printed on simple paper


A keyboard that can be printed out on simple paper and be fully functional was designed by a Creative Development Company named Novalia. Based in Cambridge, the company’s team presented this innovative device at the 2014 Consumer Electronics Show that took place last month in Las Vegas.

This truly prototypical keyboard works via Bluetooth and can be printed on a typical A4 sheet.  The device’s design is based on captive touch technology that doesn’t need any other special machinery in order to function and can be produced using standard print processes like screen printing, flexography and offset lithography. Novalia hope to role out their keyboard at a mere 10 dollars due to the use of inexpensive materials that keep production costs down.
