Google's Keycap-Adorned Beanie Actually Types

A remarkable cap made in collaboration with Google has been unveiled by Yves Béhar‘s Fuseproject, and it is as functional as it is fashionable. The "Cap Keyboard," as it is appropriately named, is a woven beanie hat embedded with buttons, and it is designed to control a phone, tablet, or laptop.

Outfitted with an array of eight capacitive touch keys, the cap features a three-axis accelerometer and gyroscope, a Bluetooth Low Energy module, and a rechargeable battery, all of which can be controlled by a mobile app. Through the app, users will be able to customize the commands for each of the eight buttons, giving them the ability to perform a variety of tasks such as playing music, sending text messages, and muting calls.

When not in use, the built-in battery can be recharged with the included docking station, allowing for up to seven days of use on a single charge. The Cap Keyboard is currently being produced as a limited edition item, with only a few hundred units available for purchase.

The eye-catching piece of technology is definitely the kind of unique product that will turn heads. But more than that, it is the perfect combination of fashion and function, allowing users to control their electronic devices without taking their hands away from what they‘re doing.
