Video: AlphaUI Lets You Back-Type (Yeah, You'll Need To Watch The Video)

“I back-type my thoughts.” Oh, do you? Pleased to hear it.

So, back-typing. (I’m hyphenating the phrase because it’s easier to read that way.) It’s a concept developed by AlphaUI, and it’s supposed to be a brand new way to type, one that more efficiently uses all 10 digits.

The video shows off the concept far better than words would be able to explain.

What happens is you connect your tablet PC to the device, then type away—excuse me, you back-type away.

It’s a little unusual, but that’s only because I’ve never really seen anything like it before.

And if you’re so inclined, you can sign up for a beta test of the device.

Well, provided you live in Paris or Brussels, where the Alpha UI prize closets are located.

That’s why there’s YouTube: you type, I watch. End of.
