About

iPad Pro is the most powerful and useful tablet available today. However, it remains limited by its virtual keyboard, which takes up half of the display and makes typing for long periods of time problematic.

Recently, Apple created an entirely separate operating system: “iPad OS” for iPad which allows it to operate more like a MacBook. One of the great features of iPad OS is mouse support, which greatly boosts the iPad’s productivity potential when used with an external keyboard… 

So we created Libra, a Bluetooth keyboard with trackpad, backlighting, and function keys to provide a user experience like a MacBook, without sacrificing the advantages of a tablet. Libra maximizes your iPad productivity while at home or on-the-go. Libra is compatible with iPad Pro 9.7", 10.5", 11" and 12.9".


  •  MacBook-style Design 

Libra’s sleek aluminum housing perfectly captures Apple’s aesthetic and matches with the iPad Pro with colors of space gray and silver. It’s the perfect complement to the iPad Pro and when combined, looks similar to a full-size MacBook.

  •  Trackpad for iPad Pro 

Libra is the world’s first iPad keyboard with a built-in trackpad, bringing you MacBook-like gesture and touch control. With the mouse support feature in the iPad OS, iPad Pro rivals the usability of a laptop now. (*More gesture control features will be added after the iPad OS released)

  • Function Keys 

Like a laptop, a dedicated row of function keys makes adjusting the iPad's volume and screen brightness a quick tap away. There are also shortcuts to perform other tasks such as switching the typing language, copy/paste, and more which makes typing and getting work done more efficiently.

  • Adjustable Backlit Keys 

The keyboard has backlit keys with three levels of brightness which makes the keyboard easier to use at night. The color and effect of the backlight are adjustable to create the perfect look. 

The keys are the same shape and size as the ones on Apple's last-generation MacBook Pro. Featuring the scissor-switch structure that makes typing on a MacBook so satisfying, Libra delivers the perfect tactile, responsive, and quiet typing experience.

  •  Magnetic Cover for 12.9-inch iPad Pro 

We consider device protection essential and with that in mind, Libra comes with a snap-on magnetic cover that can protect your iPad Pro from scratches and dents. 

  • Unique Case for 9.7, 10.5, and 11-inch iPad Pro

We provide a special case for 11-inch iPad Pro only and make the iPad Pro perfectly fit the Libra keyboard. It can fully cover your iPad Pro and protect it from crashing. Four colors of the case are available: space gray, red, green and blue. We're offering the case for 9.7" iPad Pro (2nd.gen) and 10.5" iPad Pro(2nd.gen) now which will be made in the mass production phase. 

  •  Smart Connection

Getting started with Libra is easy. After a simple initial Bluetooth connection set up, Libra will pair with your iPad Pro automatically whenever you turn on the keyboard. A seamless, reliable, Bluetooth 5.1 connection is always ready. 

  • Get a Better View

Different applications require different viewing angles. The smooth keyboard hinge can be adjusted from 0-120 degrees to achieve the perfect angle for your task.

The keyboard has a 4000mAh built-in battery that delivers up to 200 days of battery life per charge. It can charge your iPad/ iPhone through the USB C output port in an emergency.

Risks and challenges

With our years of experience with laptops and Apple accessories, we are very confident with our process and production schedule for Libra keyboard.

However, we also know that hidden obstacles and challenges often occur. Because of that, we’ve made sure to account for some amount of craziness or unforeseen problems that may occur in our schedule. Some potential risks during processing and assembly testing are expected.

1. Our product includes the battery, which makes it more difficult to ship. In order to ship products safely, it takes a bit more time. Therefore, the speed of shipping may vary in different countries. Our team will try our best to expedite the shipping and provide the best service for our backers after we reach our funding goal.

2. The definition of the trackpad’s functions will be upgraded after the release of the new iPad OS system. We will try our best to keep the backers posted about the trackpad’s schedule.

If something does go wrong, we promise to keep our backers updated and informed about any issues and about the way in which we are solving them.
