Abstract : Text entry is face to a new challenge with the Internet of Things wave. Connected objects have very few resources and especially a tiny screen. Obviously, full keyboard or keyboard using a lot of resources are not well suited. In this position paper, we propose a minimum 3-key keypad to text entry on connected objects. We argue that using 3 keys is a right approach to improve the transfer of thoughts into writing according to all the theoretical models and laws in HCI.
