Tap Strap 2 is a wearable keyboard and mouse enabling users to control devices such as iPads and smart TVs using hand gestures with its plug-and-play AirMouse functionality.
The Tap Strap 2 AirMouse works right out of the box as a standard Bluetooth device and does not require any software drivers or calibration. As an AirMouse, it has three user-selected modes of operation:
Mouse Mode, which allows users to control a cursor, click and scroll just like they would with a standard mouse.
Multimedia Mode, where users can play, pause, adjust volume and move to the next or previous track.
Smart TV mode, through which users can navigate menus, select items and search for content.
Tap Strap 2 uses onboard intelligence to know what interaction the user intends automatically. When a user's hand is horizontal, Tap Strap 2 becomes a keyboard, and when the thumb rests on a surface, it seamlessly switches to optical mouse mode. When the user's hand is rotated vertically, Tap Strap 2 will switch gears yet again into AirMouse mode.
