It can be quite a task to type on a touchscreen virtual keyboard at times. For short messages it isn’t really an issue but it can be quite a pain when it comes to writing longer messages like e-mails. Besides using an external keyboard, Thanko Japan has come up with a rather clever alternative for easier typing with the virtual keyboard on the iPad.

Instead of having a whole piece of silicone with bumps like keyboard keys, this virtual keyboard silicone overlay pad goes over the area of the screen where the iPad’s virtual keyboard appears and comes with silicone borders. These borders clearly separate each key on the virtual keyboard so your fingers will have less chance of slipping to the other keys around therefore you’ll always hit the right key instead of the ones around.

Having the silicone virtual keyboard bordering pad on the touchscreen also means that it will be in the way when typing is over so it’ll probably be more useful when it comes to long periods of writing for e-mails and essays since getting typos every other word will be a great annoyance when compared to getting typos while composing short messages.

The Thanko iPad virtual keyboard silicone key bordering pad retails for 680 yen at Thanko Japan.
