Tap Systems, Inc

Wearable Keyboard, Mouse & Controller
  • Pasadena, CA

Meet Tap, a futuristic input device that allows you to type, scroll and control wherever you go - making you feel like someone out of a science fiction movie. Tap is one handed, eyes-free, easy to learn, and ergonomic and works by translating your finger taps into letters, numbers and commands. You type characters and commands by tapping a combination of fingers on any surface and at any angle. The Tap Strap has accelerometers built into each finger ring, which collect motion and acceleration information from your fingers. That information is analyzed by a small computer chip, which is built into the thumb ring.


Tap is NOT a QWERTY or other virtual keyboard, it has its own input system that is based on logical letter pairings and easy to remember patterns. Learning to Tap takes about 90 minutes – which is approximately one tenth of the time that it takes to learn to touch-type.


Tap can also be customized so that you can activate keyboard shortcuts, modifiers and special symbols, making it the perfect companion for gaming, music control, professional applications, VR, and more!
