38 Perfectly Portable Keyboards

From Keypad-Embedded Cases to Typist Tablet Totes

— December 21, 2012 — Tech
Being able to work anywhere is an ability many people in the business world or education system want, which is why these portable keyboards are the perfect accessories to get work done while on-the-go.

Many of the designs you'll see featured here take standard keyboards, slim and size them down, and then add innovative features like waterproof capabilities or materials that are intensely flexible. Additionally, there are a number of crafty cases that have keypads embedded conveniently into the design, so you'll never have to sacrifice safety for typing capabilities.

If you need a keypad that'll fit in your pocket, there are a couple creations that are small enough to go with your anywhere, but will allow you to tap out documents at an extremely fast pace.
