Designed to be the most comfortable and convenient keyboard to take with you on the go, a Kickstarter project by the name of myType™ is a foldable keyboard that can wirelessly pair with iPhone, iPad & Android devices via Bluetooth to create an office that can be carried anywhere in your pocket. The project has already raised over $71,000 of its $10,000 goal, with 14 days still to go.
