It is a sad fact, but many innovative and revolutionary design concepts never end up seeing the light of day, but that definitely does not go for the Cool Leaf Keyboard. Thankfully, this concept that was revealed pretty much exactly a year ago will now be turned into a real product.

Designed by Minebea, the Cool Leaf Keyboard has a mirror-like touchscreen that mimics Apple products such as the iPad, iTouch and iPhone. A futuristic design, it may not only look amazing, it is also practical. With one easy swipe your Cool Leaf Keyboard is clean as can be.

Unfortunately, the Cool Leaf Keyboard is currently available only in Japanese and works only with Windows computer. It will be available in an English, German, French and Italian layout later this summer as well as one compatible with Mac computers.
