Do you enjoy using a keyboard when using your computer? I do. I am ‘old school‘ I suppose! I also have to have a mouse plugged into my laptop because I can’t stand the ‘scroller‘. Habits are hard to break!
My son, on the other hand, is a HUGE gamer. He is all about the new technology and games that come out on the Xbox One and his other game systems. My son was excited to learn about TAP Wearable Keyboard. This is a very cool invention!
What Is TAP Wearable Keyboard?
I had to watch the Youtube videos to really understand what TAP Wearable Keyboard actually was! It is very cool! Tap is a wearable keyboard, mouse and game controller that connects to most Bluetooth enabled devices. If you use a PC the compatibility requires Windows 8.1 and above and Bluetooth 4.0 or above.
Tap is engineered from advanced, biocompatible materials which allow for free movement and comfort while you tap. Tap wearable keyboard comes in two sizes (small and large) and has a micro-size battery which provides 8 hours of operation.

Is TAP Wearable Keyboard Easy To Learn/Use?
When I first watched the video I had my doubts that this would be easy to figure out. With everything, there is a learning curve and this is probably one of them! However, after watching the videos, TAP Wearable Keyboard looked like it was pretty easy to get a hang of.
Learning to Tap is easy using TapGenius, a fun mobile game that will have you tapping within minutes and mastering the Tap Alphabet in just an hour or two.
Who Can Use The TAP Strap?
TAP Strap is just another name for TAP wearable keyboard! So, who can use it? Anyone can! But, if you want to be specific, see below:
*Kids (ages 7+): Tap activates your muscle memory and teaches children to learn an ergonomic and intuitive way to input language. Using the TapMapper application, your children can understand creating customizations for software and begin understanding coding at a young age.
*Professionals: Tap allows you to connect to your Bluetooth enabled devices and control your presentations or other professional tools by tapping on surfaces. Tap lets you work on the go without needing to lug around a bulky laptop or external keyboard to pair with your phone or tablet.
*Performers: With Tap you can seamlessly control and activate show elements that would have previously required outside support – allowing you to stand out against your competitors. You can test sounds, add or remove music from a performance, or master being a one-man show (and MUCH more!).
How Do I Charge TAP?
You charge your TAP wearable keyboard by placing it inside the case it came in ensuring direct contact between the metal charging pads on the Tap (located on the bottom of the thumb loop) and the pogo-pins inside the case. Then close the cover and press the on/off button on the side of the charging case to begin charging.
Once charging, the light on the thumb ring should blink very slowly when the Tap is charging. The light will turn off when Tap is fully charged.
More About TAP Wearable Keyboard
The Tap device is a comfortable wearable that sits at the base of your fingers and senses finger taps as input. Connecting to any Bluetooth enabled device, Tap users can compose text, play games, point, click and scroll using just about any available surface.

My great nephew is 14 and he is on his phone all the time playing games. I think how easy it would be to learn and how much it would challenge him to learn more ways to use.

Lisa Vance says
I’ve been a programmer and systems engineer since the early 80s, and have had multiple surgeries on my wrists and hands and ultimately developed autoimmune rheumatoid arthritis which is causing severe deformities in my fingers and beginning to impact the accuracy of my typing as well as the time I can actually type. The ergonomic features of this product could greatly improve my life. I’d love to give it a try.
PS – I can promise a thorough evaluation and review – I told Integrated Verification & Validation (Testing) in a MS level Engineering program. 🙂
