Prototype Other Half Keyboard Demo

We recently got wind of more developments of the slide-out keyboard other half project that has been quietly simmering away over the past few months… the good news is that it looks to be nearing completion!

The keyboard OH was demoed at MWC 2014 in the Jolla stall and proves that this proof of concept is now beyond a mere dream and is actually on the verge of being realised.

We read the news via the Jolla Mobile facebook page and thank Ash from Mobile Linux News for sharing the video with all of us and especially to dirkvl at maemo for his hard work on the proof of concept!

The chassis of the keyboard OH seems to be 3D printable according to the video and the keyboard is designed to slide out and can also be angled according to your preference.

If you would like to get one of these cool OH keyboards early, dirkvl was running a pre-order with only a limited run at 100 Euros per piece and you would need to contact him via maemo and read through this thread:

Big respect to the inspiring Jolla community as always for pushing forward with these awesome projects!
