The Monarch Keyboard is a new idea in keyboards. With the Monarch software, the iPad forms a keyboard under your fingers as once you’ve placed them on the screen. The result is a keyboard that matches the size, shape, position, and rotation of your hands.
The first demo of this product was on Sunday, July 22 at iOS Dev Camp 2012. The demonstration showed the keyboard’s ability to accurately detect a user’s finger positions from ten fingers placed on the screen regardless of angle, hand size, shape or rotation.
The Monarch Keyboard development team were Michael Patrick Ellard, Darpan Dhaimija and Ashish Singh.
