Slice Keyboard Looks Cool But Will Confuse The Hell Out Of You

As an Android site, we’re used to “innovative” keyboards. Remember 8pen? Today, we have another one of those crazy but interesting keyboards for you, and this one is called Slice. It uses a key arrangement that is fairly similar to a QWERTY keyboard but is all hidden. Pressing one finger down opens a few keys at a time that you tap with other fingers. Watch the video for a better explanation. It’s a tablet only keyboard and comes with a modified Space Invaders game to train you to use it.

Just like 8pen, I think this is really cool and innovative. But I suspect that, just like 8pen, it isn’t truly usable or a better alternative to a QWERTY keyboard and will fade into obscurity. If you’re going to be using all your fingers on a tablet, why not use a QWERTY? If you want to try it, hit the source link for the demo version. If you want to use the keyboard outside of the demo app, you’ll have to buy it. But I’d love to hear your opinions on it. What do you think? Leave your thoughts in a comment!
