How'd you like a tablet keyboard that's there when you need it and disappears when you're done? Now you can. The new Phorm iPad case from Tactus Technology includes a physical keyboard that disappears when you're not using it.

At first glance, Phorm looks like a regular protective case. But beneath the surface lies a special technology called microfluidics that makes keyboard buttons bubble up out of the touchscreen when you need to type and then disappear when you’re done.

The keyboard buttons pop up over the iPad's built in keyboard, giving you physical buttons to feel for and use while you're typing. You can enable the buttons using a slider on the back of the case. When you're done, just move the slider again to make the buttons disappear.
