Come on, admit it: you’ve suffered Fat Finger issues with your smart phone or tablet. Slightly chunky fingers can run into problems, and don’t get us started on carpal-tunnel. Is the remedy a transparent tablet? That’s what Grippity is wagering with their ergonomic-minded gadget. It allows you to use all your fingers, pressing keys from the back side of the device.
The company’s Kickstarter page asks, “Is it a Tablet? A remote control? A game controller? A media center keyboard? … Like any smart device, it can be all of the above.”
We know for sure it runs Android and has Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, with a battery offering 2,400 mA/h and 4GB of internal storage. The display is 7″ and 800×480. The processor is Cortex A8, with 512K of RAM.
The developers gave the heave-ho to the opaque parts of a traditional LCD display to make a device with one “diffusion layer,” to quote from their kickstarter page. I’m sick of too many diffusion layers, myself: check out Grippity.
