There, I say it, no patent protection for it.

I want a flexible keyboard works like a cover for my next tablet computer (iSlate/Windows whatever that may be).

And who want to hire a creative director?

Interesting, why do you want it to be flexible? One of the problems that I saw when I was doing QA for a software company was people often specify that they want a solution without saying why they want it.

In this case I'm guessing you want to 1) protect your tablet 2) have a functional, portable keyboard. A flexible keyboard would be very easy to make, but I'm not sure why it would be preferred over a hard keyboard.

Flex keyboard is the search key words we use to find these kind of soft keyboard.
I definitely don't want hard on hard contact between keyboard and my tablet.
I want some good touch feeling, maybe make the keyboard feel and look like a thick leather cover. Or a leather carry case.
