I am the founder and inventor of the TouchOne keyboard. Since 2011, I have been researching and developing the first ever dedicated smartwatch keyboard which functions on both a square and circular smartwatch device.

I lead a team of five people based in Melbourne, Australia with one clear goal: to greatly enhance the smartwatch user’s experience with a proper keyboard solution.

Today’s smartphones, smartwatches and smart TV remotes still use the QWERTY keyboard as the primary input method. The invention of the QWERTY keyboard is almost 150 years old and as devices get smaller and smaller, there have been attempts to cram 108 keys of the QWERTY keyboard on a 1.3 inch smartwatch screen.

This has been proven to be an inefficient way of typing on such as small device as the keys are barely visible. There is a need for a new design for being able to type on a smartwatch. Currently there has been no innovation to cater for small devices by any other company in the world.

The TouchOne Keyboard has been designed carefully based on human finger ergonomics research. This has allowed us to implement an input method algorithm from scratch that took over four years to develop. The framework of the keyboard is derived from the T9 keyboard design, where the 26 alphabetical letter are grouped in 8 keys.
