LG Rolly is the world's first solid rollable keyboard for smartphones and tablets

LG Rolly is the world's first solid rollable keyboard for smartphones and tablets
LG just announced an interesting wireless keyboard made for both smartphones, and tablets. Called LG Rolly, the accessory is presented as "the industry's first solid rollable wireless portable keyboard."

Unlike most flexible keyboards that are already on the market, the LG Rolly keyboard is not made out of silicon. Instead, it's made of "impact-resistant" polycarbonate and ABS plastic, so it should provide an enhanced tactile feedback. The new keyboard can be folded and turned into a stick that's easy to carry around - you can even put in in your pocket.

Relying on Bluetooth 3.0, the LG Rolly can be paired with smartphones and tablets (up to two devices simultaneously), and has a stand that supports both types of devices, though tablets must not have screens larger than 10 inches. The new accessory uses a single AAA battery that should be enough to power it for 3 months.

LG will showcase the Rolly keyboard next month at IFA 2015. Pricing and availability details will probably also be unveiled then. How much will you be willing to pay for this keyboard?

While I agree that it is not a pretty device, it is not meant to be pretty... I actually love the compactness and practicality of this keyboard... I own a logitech K810 which in my opinion is still the best even after 3 years of having it bought.... but it is definitely a different approach. This one, just like the foldable one from Microsoft is meant to be very "portable"... on the other hand, my K810 is meant to have many features such as backlight, fast BT switching within 3 connections, proximity sensor, ambient light sensor, full sized island type keyboard and a very atractive design with brushed aluminum finish........ Now, when it comes to prices... I actually paid around $100 for my K810... but I wouldn't pay $100 for the foldable Microsoft Keyboard and I would not pay more than $70 for this one, though it does include some nifty features..... It all depends on what are your needs.... portability OR confort... simplicity OR feature rich....

Its genius, I love how every person is so critical of new innovation. Yet they are nothing amazing themselves, never invented or put anything to use for consumers at all let alone a global scale. Douche bags
