Cambridge Silicon Radio Unveils the World’s Thinnest Keyboard

British company Cambridge Silicon Radio has unveiled the world’s slimmest keyboard. The keyboard has a thickness of only 0.49 mm and not only offers a 79-key QWERTY keyboard and a multi-touch trackpad, but can also turn itself into a completely touch surface (such as a graphics tablet).

While most of the keyboard is 0.49 mm it is not that thickness throughout. It has a thicker portion on its end that holds the battery, electronics, and a Bluetooth low-energy transceiver. It supports Bluetooth Smart which lets you pair it with any Bluetooth enabled smartphone, tablet or PC. Cambridge Silicon Radio is using its newest CSR1010 SoC to run the keyboard which offers latencies as low as 12 ms. The keyboard was unveiled at IFA Berlin 2013, but the company has not announced any retail plans.
