The "2012 Typographic Wall Calendar" is a project to produce a large (70cm x 100cm / 27.56in x 39.37in) printed wall calendar for the year 2012. The calendar is made of two-thousand and twelve used keyboard keys. The keys are arranged manually by German typographer Harald Geisler to write out all days of the year 2012.
This is a real, usable calendar. The Typographic Calendar makes finding dates a fun and creative process. The keys are arranged in a grid. If you read them from left to right, they read each day of the year in sequence: January Sun 01 Mon 02 Tue 03 etc. You can think of it like a long array, sequence or string of all dates in the year. To make things easier, every month is differentiated by an "arrow key." This enables you to scan the grid for a specific month before beginning to search for the day. After a bit of practice, you can orient yourself quickly within the grid. You can also use certain brands of whiteboard markers to write events onto the calendar.
The calendars layout is simple, despite looking otherwise at first glance. Harald imagined a person working in an office typing every day of the year down like a text, every pressed key literally appears on the calendar. The keys are arranged in a grid. You read the composition just like a text: from left to right and top to bottom. The line breaks at the end of the canvas and the code continues on the left side again–like a monospaced typewriter. The entire text of the calendar fits on one big page, 70 x 100cm.

The project is being funded on Kickstarter, where you can get a print of the 2012 calendar for just $35.

Prints of the calendar
The printed Typographic Wall Calendar reproduces the keys in their actual size. The size of the print is B0 (70cm x 100cm / 27.56in x 39.37in). It's printed in four color offset on thick paper and UV coated to protect the print from scratches and the colors from bleaching.
You can order prints of the wall calendar from Harald's site here.
Many people I know simply do not like attempting to type on the iPad for the same reason that several iPhone owners turned back to their Blackberry. They miss the ease of using a keyboard as you normally would. That's precisely why Steve Isaac and Brad Melmon of Seattle have come up with a thin, feather-weight device that puts the "touch" back into typing - TouchFire.
TouchFire makes typing on your iPad feel like using a normal keyboard. The silicone rubber keyboard is easy to type on, cushions your fingers and weighs less than an ounce.
It's ultra-thin and attaches to the inside of the iPad cover and folds up within the cover, so you can always keep TouchFire with your iPad without it getting in the way. It's so thin and transparent that you can even use the touch screen as you normally would and 'swipe' through it if you so desired. TouchFire fits right over the iPad keyboard and aligns itself magnetically.
Applies magnetically to position directly over the iPad keyboard:
Roll it down to use the whole screen:
It attaches easily to the iPad Smart Cover with two plastic clips:
If you don't have a SmartCover on your iPad, the TouchFire is easily stored in its handy case:
