Want a Bluetooth keyboard that doesn’t take up much space in your bag? LG has just introduced a keyboard that rolls up into a stick when it’s not in use.
It’s called the LG Rolly Keyboard and it includes a built-in stand for a tablet or phone, a battery that’s good for up to 3 months, and support for pairing with up to two devices at once.
This isn’t the first roll-up keyboard on the market. But earlier versions tend to be flimsy plastic keyboards with mushy, silicon keys.
The Rolly Keyboard seems to be made of sturdier stuff, and has a 17mm key pitch. The keyboard is made from polycarbonate and ABS plastic, and has a few nifty tricks, including the ability to instantly switch between two different paired devices with a key press.
LG says the keyboard also automatically turns off when it’s rolled up, and turns on when it’s unrolled, allowing it to instantly pair with a paired device.
The company hasn’t revealed how much the Rolly Keyboard will cost or when it will be available, but LG plans to show it off at the IFA trade show in Berlin next week.
