Microsoft announces keyboard for Android Wear devices

Microsoft logoMicrosoft has introduced what it calls an "analog" keyboard for Android Wear powered devices. Still considered a prototype by the software giant, this keyboard uses your handwritten letters to input text on a smartwatch. The keyboard will even allow you to enter special characters, along with numbers and letters.

The keyboard supports square screens with a 320 x 320 resolution and the Motorola Moto 360. When using the keyboard, you simply write in the letter, number, punctuation or special character that you want. While you are drawing on a cursor, the top of the screen prints out what you have just written.

The video below, produced by Microsoft, shows a couple of uses for the keyboard. One example shows the keyboard being used for messaging, followed by an example of it being used for search. If you're interested in downloading the app for your Android Wear powered smartwatch, click on the sourcelink below.
