“Well-known entertainment personality and producer Ryan Seacrest said he had invested in a startup, which he also co-founded, that makes a keyboard accessory for the Apple iPhone,” Kara Swisher reports for AllThingsD.

“The Typo Keyboard will makes its debut at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas at the beginning of 2014,” Swisher reports. “While the company declined to discuss funding, sources said that Seacrest and his co-founder have invested over $1 million.”

Swisher reports, “It took two years of development to get to the Typo, which seems to clip onto the smartphone like a protective case (I have not tried it, as yet — though I type just fine on a virtual keyboard).”
