The Emojistar keyboard hits IndieGoGo

 

When covering tech news I have often came across products that I have found to be silly, overly niche or in some cases entirely unnecessary. Sometimes there are products that come a long that that set me into bang head on desk made, and the Emojistar Keyboard is one such device. Yes, it is a keyboard that is made specifically to type emojis.

This keyboard is currently on IndieGoGo and currently has no supporters, though I am guessing that that may change over the coming hours and days of the campaign.

The Keyboard will come in 2 versions, the first which, the ESK Light, is $79 US will have support for 59 Emoji while the more expensive ESK Full will be $99 US and will support 118 Emoji.

 

It seems like a traditional plastic keyboard at first glance, but this is also where the similarity ends.

EmojiStar keyboard (ESK) is a key with built-in symbol system to express an idea, emotion with a lot of hot emojis. 

Is it real? Yes! You can magically type emojis in twitter, regular letters, etc! Go ahead, Tell them how you feel. Tell us how you feel.
