Portacomp, Keyfilm and Screenglasses. It would make for a nice combo.

I've used a friend's rubber keyboard many times. (this was early 00's, before bluetooth domination.) It can be almost casually packed up by rolling it up. It's water proofed (at least until a child or fur-person chews upon it). Decidedly better feel than the PCJr or Sinclair chicklet keyboards or the Atari and Sinclair membrane ones. (Reminds me. When I find It again in the stuff, I should restore my TS1000 and see if I can get the Atari 400 to work.)

The real ultimate in go anywhere keyboards, tho', is the scanning laser keyboard from the late 00's or early 2010's... 4" tall 2 or 3 laser device. One draws the keyboard on any flat surface on which the device itself sits . A second does rangefinding in non- optical to locate fingers; ISTR that there were receivers for two separate non-visibles (scanning from different sides) as well as the drawing laser, so it was capable of multiple key detections.

I bought one of those but never got it to work. The Bluetooth wouldn't pair up with anything I owned (multiple OSes both PDA and desktop). Tactile feedback, obviously, would be nil.

I did (and still do) regularly use folding keyboards with phones and tablets, though less so once Chromebooks started having the kind of battery life that once was limited to tablets.

I still haven't found one as good as the original accordion-style Palm folding keyboard, but some have come close.
