Microsoft also has a foldable keyboard. It is spill resistance, less than a half of an inch thin. The keyboard folds a different way compared to the LG model. In the end, it really depends on the shape of your bag to determine which one you would prefer.
However, the Microsoft keyboard seems to be more advanced. It allows you to connect two devices at once. You can work on your laptop while typing on your phone with the same keyboard at once.
However, the design is a little different from a traditional keyboard. Since it is foldable in the middle, the keyboard has a gap in the middle, so it will take some time to get used to. It is currently available for $99.95.
Ok, it is expensive. A model 01 keyboard is available for $329. But before you skip on this, just to show how popular it is the model 01 has already has been sold out, and only can ship in September.

The next thing you will notice it is not a keyboard. The model 01 has two pieces of the keyboard, and you can adjust the position based on your hand. The keys are flat. They are sculpted to guide your finger, and the layout is adjusted to the natural position of human hands.
The developer made the technology open source. You will get a screwdriver and all the source code. So you can buy parts, recode, and do anything you want with this impressive keyboard. You can get it for $329.
6. Serafim virtual keyboard
This keyboard is objectively insane to look at. First of all, there is no physical keyboard. The keys are projected onto a surface like a hologram. All you need is a small box and connect it to your device.
The sensor will interpret a user’s movement on the hologram keyboard and translate it onto the screen. You can also choose the music option. It can transform the regular keyboard into piano keys. For DJs, this might be a simple tool to keep the party going. It is currently available for $118
