Selfie Type Utilizes Invisible Keyboard Tech

Selfie Type is a project of Samsung’s in-house idea incubator C-Labs and delivers a virtual keyboard to users with the help of an AI algorithm and a front-facing camera. No additional hardware is required to set it up.

It allows users to type without physically touching their device’s on-screen keyboard. How accurate it is with tracking keystrokes remains to be seen, but the demo video certainly looks promising.

An email being typed in the video suggests that Selfie Type will be released to Samsung users as an update. This feature would be available to all current Samsung flagships on release and requires a front-facing camera. The remaining details are vague, but Samsung has officially confirmed that the tech analyzes finger movements coming from the front camera, and converts them into QWERTY keyboard inputs.
