TouchFire, makers of the TouchFire screen-top keyboard for the full-size iPad, are now back with a similar offering for the iPad mini. The company has reached its funding goal in a Kickstarter campaign for the iPad mini add-on, and the device will likely begin shipping to early supporters soon. In addition to a removable keyboard attachment for the iPad mini, TouchFire has branched off into a line of cases for full-size iPads and the iPad mini.

The original TouchFire cover debuted to considerable interest from iPad owners looking to increase their productivity on the bestselling tablet. The screen-top keyboard quickly fulfilled its $10,000 Kickstarter funding goal, ultimately pulling in more than $200,000 from supporters. The version for the iPad mini has grabbed $20,319 in funding for its $10,000 goal, with 17 days left in its campaign. The device's creators say that the iPad mini was particularly hard to design for, given its size. It took eight months to develop TouchFire for the smaller iPad, according to the company's co-founder. TouchFire's new cases are are slim accessories that lock onto an iPad while still providing access to the device's ports, controls, and camera. They have the same magnet-activated sleep/wake function that Apple's Smart Covers do, and they are coated in a grippy material that keeps the device from sliding on a table.
