Inflatable Keyboard Speaker/Mic
A handy item that floats, this air-filled keyboard can be rolled up when not in use, or combined with an airbag in an Escalade to allow fast texting while in transit on a congested freeway. By making the keyboard out of a piezopolymer such as polyvinylidenediflouride, one can make it work like a mic or a speaker, or both at the same time. A highly vibratory and button intensive appliance, this scheme was talked about for many years as the answer to portable computing, disposable computing, seaworthy typewriting, infant care touch type training, and even hospital sterile field data entry.
