World's 'thinnest keyboard' is as thin as paper

The world's thinnest computer keyboard has been revealed by tech company CSR.

British scientists have invented a flexible computer keyboard that is as thin as a piece of paper and can turn any area into a touch-sensitive surface.
Tech company Cambridge Silicon Radio (CSR) claims its keyboard is the world's thinnest, at half a millimeter thick and offers consumers a 'glimpse of future computing interfaces' that are paper-thin, wireless and respond to touch.
The device can be used to extend the touch-sensitive areas of tablets and smartphones so customers can use a full-size thin keyboard to type messages on their mobile.

Very clever and...light!

The keyboard is as thin as a sheet of paper and works with tablets and computers wirelessly using Bluetooth.
It's flexible and measures just 0.5mm thick.

It's hoped the keyboard could be built into tablet covers, books or desks.
It will go on display at the IFA tech show in Berlin, Germany on 6 September.
