LG Rolly, The World’s First Full-Size Wireless Keyboard That Rolls up to Fit in Pockets
LG has announced a very interesting new wireless keyboard accessory for mobile devices. Dubbed Rolly, the keyboard is touted as the industry’s first solid rollable wireless portable keyboard.
What’s unique about this portable keyboard is that it could fold up along the four rows to create an easy-to-carry “stick” that fits into your pocket just like any purse.
The LG Rolly is made out of ‘impact-resistant’ polycarbonate and ABS plastic, designed to offer a much rich typing experience compared to all the flexible silicone keyboards out there. Further, Rolly comes with a 17mm key pitch so typing on it is nearly as comfortable as on the 18mm key pitch found on most desktop keyboards.
The keyboard features two sturdy arms that fold out to support smartphones as well as tablets in an upright position. Simply unfolding the Rolly Keyboard enables the auto pairing function; it can connect to two different devices at the same time via Bluetooth 3.0.
It requires a single AAA battery that powers it for up to three months of average use.
“LG Rolly Keyboard is just one of the many premium input devices we’ll be unveiling in the coming months as we expand our accessories offerings,” said Seo Young-jae, vice president in charge of Innovative Personal Devices at LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company.
“The goal was to create a product that could add more value to LG smartphones and tablets at the same time offering a unique design proposition that hadn’t been explored before.”
LG hasn’t revealed the pricing for its Rolly Keyboard, which is set to be showcased at IFA 2015 next month.
