When it comes to tech accessories, it can be frustrating when people change or upgrade their devices only to find that the expensive accessories purchased for the original gadgets don't work with the new ones; enter the Universal Mobile Keyboard. It is an accessory that defies this common occurrence. Although it is unclear whether it can adapt to new models as they come out, what makes the Universal Mobile Keyboard so special is that it can be used in tangent with iOS, Android and Windows devices.

Designed by Microsoft, the Universal Mobile Keyboard "underlines the company’s focus on providing software, services, and even hardware for rival platforms to Windows," The Verge points out. Hopefully we'll see more like this.
