Innopresso, a member company of the Born2Global Centre, recently launched "Mokibo Folio," an independently developed keyboard with an integrated touchpad, on Kickstarter (www.b2ge.fnd.to/mokifolio). The company has accumulated USD 450K through previous crowdfunding campaigns for this product on Wadiz and Indiegogo.

 


 

The Mokibo Folio made available via Kickstarter is a touchpad-embedded keyboard made exclusively for the iPad that also features heightened key and touchpad sensitivity compared to the Mokibo 2019. Its most defining feature is the efficient use of space made possible thanks to the application of a smart mode-converting algorithm and motion-recognition technology that allow the product to double as a single, large touchpad, eliminating the need for a separate touchpad or mouse. Mokibo Folio is a portable device that offers exceptional convenience by serving double duty as a small keyboard and large touchpad.

 

Innopresso has also completed a Mokibo module for laptops. If a laptop manufacturer uses the Mokibo module, it can save the space that would have normally been allocated for a touchpad. The Mokibo also allows manufacturers to produce laptops that are 4.3 percent thinner and 3.9 percent lighter and provides improved control by offering triple the area of a typical touchpad.

 

Innopresso CEO Jeff Cho said, "Mokibo has infinite growth potential. In addition to laptops, we hope to expand its range of application, including as a smart home control device in living rooms and media controller in a self-driving car. With our release of the Mokibo Folio, we will be enhancing our global brand visibility, especially given the fact that the iPad keyboard market is growing by approximately USD 1.8 billion every year."

 

Cho, who used to be an employee at LG Electronics patent center, is honing Innopresso's technological edge by building up a global patent portfolio (47 patent applications submitted and 22 patents registered in world-wide). Innopresso received a Prime Minister Award at the Mobile Technology Awards in December 2019.

 


 

Mokibo: 2-in-1 Keyboard Embedded with Touchpad

 

 

Innopresso, a member company of the Born2Global Centre, successfully launched its smart keyboard "Mokibo" on Indiegogo (https://igg.me/at/mokibo/x#/).

 

Mokibo is a smart keyboard that combines the functions of a keyboard with those of a touchpad. To convert the keyboard into a touchpad, the user simply places his/her hand over the mouse button. The keyboard's smart mode conversion algorithm and motion perception technology allow it to be used as a large touchpad together with the user's existing keyboard without the need for a separate touchpad or mouse.

 

Despite its small size, Mokibo offers a full-size keyboard and large touch pad and can also be used as a portable keyboard. If a laptop manufacturer designs a laptop with the Mokibo module, it can save touchpad space, resulting in a laptop that is approximately 4.3 percent thinner than other models. The laptop's weight can also be reduced by over 3.9 percent. Mokibo transforms into a touchpad that is three times larger than the average laptop touchpad, allowing the user to control his/her mouse more effectively.

 


 

 

Innopresso CEO Enyoung Cho said, "The function that tablet PC users have the most trouble with is the keypad. Virtual tablet keypads not only fail to offer users the feeling of 'pressing keys' like a regular keyboard, but they are uncomfortable to use, especially for document writing, and the use of such keypads often results in a large amount of typos. Because of these inconveniences, people resort to using a portable keyboard and mouse. We believe that our motion-sensitive keyboard 'Mokibo' is an effective alternative to using a separate mouse, which is an inconvenience to have to carry around." Cho went on to say that, even for small desktop surfaces, such as student desks or university lecture halls, a smartphone and Mokibo is enough not only to take notes, but also to edit Excel or PowerPoint files.

 

In 2012, Innopresso submitted and received approval for a source patent for the technology used to create Mokibo. Since then, Innopresso has submitted approximately 49 patent, trademark, and design applications in Korea and other countries, of which 17 have been registered. In these and other ways, Innopresso has continued to gain international recognition for its technologies.
