The iKeyboard Provides Tactile Feedback For iPad's Virtual Keyboard

The iPad's only weak point lies with its virtual keyboard. Unlike the iPhone on which you could easily tap away on, the iPad's larger keyboard makes it a little more difficult to quickly bang out anything longer than 50 words. You could buy a Bluetooth keyboard, but that means carrying around another gadget, negating the lightness and portability of the tablet. We may have stumbled onto a solution: the iKeyboard

Basically just an overlay that rests on the virtual keyboard, the iKeyboard is said to make it easier for iPad users to touch-type, making it so users no longer have to look down at the keyboard when they peck out a message. The experience, according creator Cliff Their, is supposed to be akin to a real keyboard. 

Right now iKeyboard is only a Kickstarter project, but Thier has managed to pass his monetary goal by over $10,000 meaning that the iKeyboard will (probably; hopefully) get made. There's no word on price or availability as of now. Keep checking the iKeyboard Kickstarter page for updates.
