'Rolly' is the first rollable keyboard for mobile devices that folds up into a stick, which can easily fit in your pocket or a briefcase.
At the IFA 2015 consumer electronics tradefair (taking place from September 4 to 9, 2015 in Berlin) LG Electronics will reveal its first physical, wireless (Bluetooth 3.0) keyboard that simply rolls out along four key rows (without the number pad, though) and you can use it like you would use your usual, standard-sized keyboard. Officially, it's called the LG Rolly Keyboard (KBB-700). When you fold it together, it becomes a stick, easily stored in a pocket or a briefcase.
Rolly comes with a 17mm key pitch, which is 1mm less than prototypical keyboards of the desktop. Typing should be pretty comfortable and you will feel like you are using a 'real' keyboard – if you've ever tried using a silicone keyboard, you know that responsive keys is what users missed the most. It also features a mobile device stand with two arms that fold out conveniently to support your smartphone or a tablet (up to 10 inches).
Rolly is made of impact-resistant polycarbonate and ABS plastic and is powered by a single AAA battery that supplies enough energy for the keyboard to run smoothly for three months.
LG's keyboard is said to be launched later this year with the price tag currently still unknown.
