If you’ve ever tried to use an on-screen keyboard on an iPad, and cursed the lack of keys, or used a physical keyboard, but wished you had a touchpad, then the Mokibo Touchpad Fusion Keyboard will be of interest to you!
Every Friday I share one of my favourite finds of the week — a website, tool or an app that has impressed me.
My Friday Favourite this week is Mokibo – Touchpad Fusion Keyboard.
What is it?
The Mokibo Touchpad Fusion Keyboard is a physical keyboard that allows you to move and click on the keyboard, like a touchpad on a laptop.
How much does it cost?
The Mokibo Touchpad Fusion Keyboard costs from $119.
A Touchpad Fusion Keyboard
I love technology that helps you do things more efficiently. Swiftkey – Smart Keyboard with Autocorrect is a great example of software that can help you get more done, faster.
When I visited CES 2020 in Las Vegas, I saw a lot of great technology. One of the most useful devices I saw was the Mokibo Touchpad Fusion Keyboard.
It looks like a normal keyboard, but you can also use it as a touchpad!
The designers have turned the entire surface of the keyboard into a large touchpad.
There are other nice features such as
- if you slide up and down with two fingers, it will work as the mouse scroll function.
- a variety of hotkeys including Home screen, Search, Screenshot and Virtual keyboard on/off.
- Other hotkeys such as Volume, Screen lock, Battery check, and Touch lock, etc.
The keyboard works via Bluetooth and can be connected to any Bluetooth-enabled device such as Windows, Android, Mac, iPhone and iPad.
You can connect up to 3 Bluetooth devices at a time and easily switch between different devices.
The device itself is really thin and made of aluminium. It weighs around 245g, so is very light to carry.
As my friend Jim Stackhouse of NeoLore Networks (who was also at CES, and who found the Mokibo awesome!) said — the Mokibo has great applications with people who want to use a Virtual Desktop via an iPad. The full functionality of a desktop PC, via an iPad? Nice!
How can I get it?

Thanks to Mokibo inventor Eunhyung Cho for spending time to demonstrate the Mobiko to me at CES 2020!
