the ’emoji keyboard’ cover and custom software by disk cactus, brings the joy and expressive power of emoji symbols to the mac computer. by downloading the company’s installer, an apple with the USA keyboard layout enables access to over 150 signs. to activate this feature and to not interrupt typing too much, the user just has to turn on the cap lock in order to unlock their full emotions. the shift, control and option buttons also allows people to use alternative characters. aiming for a minimum production run of 1000 ’emoji keyboard’ covers, the art and technology studio is seeking funding through their kickstarter campaign.

the first iteration of the cover fits on apple USA keyboards




the silicone product can be easily fitted and removed


each key is assigned a single emoji

  • If I could choose/customize what emojis are put onto the silicone keyboard cover I would buy this in a heartbeat. I just don’t use a biker, a dress, or a mountain everyday. It seems a little inconvenient since this should be a product made to be convenient for emoji users. Until then, I will wait patiently. LOVE the product and the idea behind it but needs a little bit of a customization touch.
