Developed by Dougie Mann, the TypeCase is completely hands-off, of the screen that is. Instead, users press buttons on its sides in order to make letters appear on the screen.

The case has five buttons positioned about where your fingers would be if you were holding your phone securely in your right hand. It works like a chorded keyboard, where pressing a specific combination of the keys at the same time produces a specific letter. In theory, the user would be able to single-handedly type messages without ever needing to touch or even look at their screen.
