Apple to use E Ink technology for new MacBook keyboard?

Posted on Thursday, October 13 2016 @ 18:48:22 CEST by

Word is going around that Apple is in talks with Sonder to use the firm's dynamic keyboard technology for future MacBook laptops. Sonder Keyboard is an Australian startup that's part of Foxconn's Incubator program, it uses E Ink technology to offer dynamic, contextual keys that can be configured by the user.

It's unknown how Apple plans to implement it but it's unlikely to be part of the next MacBook Pro refresh.
While Apple is thought to be including a new OLED touch panel for dynamic buttons on upcoming MacBooks that could arrive as early as this month, it’s unclear how the Sonder technology might come into play. In theory, the technology could allow Apple to offer a wireless Magic Keyboard that offers similar functionality to its upcoming contextually sensitive buttons on MacBooks, or perhaps Apple is exploring entirely dynamic keyboards for future laptop models beyond the upcoming MacBook Pro refresh.
Here's a video clip that showcases the capabilities of the Sonder keyboard, which is sold via the company's site for $199. Sonder claims it's in talks with three laptop vendors to integrate its technology into their products.
