Inspect-a-Gadget: The Rolly Bluetooth Keyboard

Inspect-a-Gadget is a monthly segment where we feature a tech toy our editors have been playing with.

We've seen Bluetooth keyboards before – connect one to your iPad and boom, you get a mini-computer – but this gadget takes the classic folding form and puts a twist on it. Or should we say roll? LG’s Rolly keyboard feels distinctively solid and durable in your hand when furled up, taking the form of a stick and held closed by magnets. When opened, it turns on and automatically connects to your tablet or mobile phone, which can be held in the keyboard’s stand.

The obvious downside of a flexible keyboard is that it must be used on hard surfaces. LG has advertised its product as ‘full-sized,’ but in practice the dimensions feel a bit off, though the ‘impact resistant’ material makes the typing experience more tactile than on a silicon keyboard.
