Cambridge Silicon Radio showed of its super slim prototype keyboard at IFA’s ShowStoppers party in Berlin, Germany on Thursday evening, and said that the product could soon be heading to market.

BERLIN, GERMANY: The paper-thin and flexible keyboard is less than half a millimetre thick and uses the latest version of Bluetooth – Bluetooth Smart – to connect with tablets, laptops and desktops, irrespective of whether those devices are running Android, iOS/OS X Mavericks or Windows 8.

UK-based CSR showed the keyboard, which was developed in conjunction with Atmel and Conductive Inject Technology to make the wireless touch surface – and said that it could even be integrated directly into a smartphone or tablet cover in future.

For now though, Paul Williamson, the company's director low power wireless technology, has said that it remains a prototype product, although he did tell TabTimes that the firm is in discussions with numerous ‘top-tier’ PC vendors about bringing it to market.
