Minuum shrinks all the letters of a keyboard down into a single row of text. This is potentially convenient for smartphones, but the learning curve alone is enough to push some users back to alternative options. Yet for smaller devices where a full-size keyboard is downright unwieldy, Minuum is uniquely situated to step in and scratch that itch. The app has now come to Google Glass, but unfortunately, this looks like one of those itches you don't want to scratch in public.

The team has developed versions of Minuum that works either by touching the Glass touchpad or moving your head subtly, with the idea behind the latter being to essentially let you look at the letters you wish to type. The developers are also exploring the possibility of tracking eye movements directly, following a motion-sensing device such as a ring, or using keys overlaid onto your arm or another surface. Quite frankly, I'm not sure any of these options will look any better than tapping away on my temple like I'm sending a telegram straight into my brain, but then again, I'm also not someone who's ready to wear Glass in public either. I'll let you cooler kids be the judge of this.
