No keyboard needed, Samsung brought ‘selfie type’ technology

The tech giant Samsung will be showcasing a unique technology show at CES 2020. This technology is named ‘Selfie Type’. With the help of this technology, the dependence on your keyboard will be eliminated. This unique technology of Samsung can transform any surface into a keyboard. The company has also shared a video related to ‘Selfie Type’ technology.

This invisible keyboard from Samsung uses the Galaxy Selfie Camera Plus AI of the phone. Through this, the camera tracks the movement of the user’s hands, so that you will be able to use the invisible keyboard. For this, you can use any surface as a keyboard. In the video below, you can see how this technology works.

The way to use it is quite easy. For this, you have to keep your phone in vertical position and after that you can start typing. If you use Galaxy Fold, you can use any surface as a keyboard by keeping it in L shape.

According to the report, this selfie type keyboard currently supports only English language. A user on the Samsung Community Forum wrote in his post, ‘Selfie type is a technology that enlists the fingers using the front camera and AI and can type without physical buttons.’

Selfie Type is a project of Samsung’s in-house idea incubator C-Labs and delivers a virtual keyboard to users with the help of an AI algorithm and a front-facing camera. No additional hardware is required to set it up. It allows users to type without physically touching their device’s on-screen keyboard.
