While I personally favor keyboard keys that have a nice satisfying “clack” to them, there are others who prefer the softer and quieter touch of laptop keyboards, which have also found their way into tablet cases, allowing tablet owners to type out documents with ease versus an on-screen keyboard. Now if there is one thing we like about the Microsoft Surface tablet is the Touch Covers that you can buy along with the tablet. This adds a keyboard to your tablet without too much bulk, while at the same time protecting its display. If you thought this would be a great idea for the iPad, you’re in luck as the folks behind Nibiqü are hoping to do just that.

As you can see in the image above, the Nibiqü is a keyboard cover for your iPad which has been designed to be somewhat similar to the Touch Type cover by Microsoft. However the difference is that unlike the Touch Type cover, the Nibiqü will protect the front and back of your iPad, and will also allow it to double as a stand to prop up your tablet as you type. At the moment the Nibiqü is a Kickstarter project and will be compatible with only the second and third-gen iPads with the 30-pin dock connector. They are currently looking to expand to support iPads with the Lightning connector as well as Android tablets like the Kindle Fire and Galaxy Tab. If you’re interested in supporting their project, you can head on over to its Kickstarter page to learn more or to pledge your donation.
