Minuum keyboard headed to Moto 360

Minuum keyboard on Moto 360

Minuum is bending their unique swiping keyboard to fit it onto the circular Moto 360 smartwatch. The half-moon keyboard, which rims the face of the watch with three rows of letters, is the first implementation of a keyboard we've seen on the Moto 360.

Minuum hasn't been shy about cramming their keyboard into all sorts of places, including the Omate TrueSmart and Galaxy Gear smartwatches, and even Google Glass.

That said, we do kind of have to question the efficacy of a keyboard right along a circular edge like that of the Moto 360. Though we don't blame Minuum for developing their keyboard into a circular form — the Moto 360 is sure to be among the most popular Android Wear smartwatches. It's an interesting implementation, and certainly a case of thinking outside the box.

Let us know what you think!

Hard to get excited about a render that did not even consider the lack of the bottom portion being working screen.

They don't honor the unusable "chin" area at the bottom of the screen.
It's nice animation but it's vapor wear and they clearly haven't spent much time understanding how they would be able to work well with the 360.
