The I-Tech Virtual Laser Keyboard

What is it?
The Virtual Laser Keyboard (VKB) uses both infrared and laser technology to generate an invisible field and project a full-size virtual QWERTY keyboard on any surface.
You can use the VKB (Virtual PC Keyboard) with both your laptop and PC or with a compatible mobile device, Smartphone and PDA.
The I-Tech VKB reacts exactly like a real keyboard.
Direction technology based on optical recognition enables the user to tap the images of the keys, complete with realistic tapping sounds(!), which feeds into the compatible PDA, Smartphone, laptop or PC.

Note:The VKB is both PC and Macintosh compatible...!

Virtual Laser Keyboard Features:
Personal Digital Assistants (PDA's)
Cellular Telephones
Laptops
Tablet PCs
Space saving Computers
Clean Rooms
Industrial Environments
Test Equipment
Sterile and Medical Environments
Transport (Air, Rail, Automotive)

More Features:
About the size of a small cellular phone, (90 x 34 x 24 mm), the VKB enables users to type texts or e-mails as easily as with a ordinary keyboard. Imagine how easy it would be, if you had a proper mobile phone keyboard that fits in your pocket...

The I-Tech Virtual Keyboard uses a light projection of a full-sized computer keyboard on almost any surface. Used with PDA's and Smart Phones, the Virtual Keyboard provides a practical way to do e-mail, word processing and spreadsheet tasks, enabling users to leave laptops and computers at home.

VKB's adaptable technology studies the user's finger movements to interpret and record keystrokes. Because the virtual keyboard is an image projected by light, it disappears completely when not in use.

When using the VKB settings can be changed either via your laptop, your PC or your compatible Smartphone and PDA:
Sound: controllable Virtual Keyboard sound effects (keyclicks)
Connection: Connection to the appropriate Laptop/PC port
Intensity: Intensity of the projected Virtual Keyboard
Timeouts: coordinated timeouts to conserve the Virtual Keyboard's battery life
Sensitivity: adjustable sensitivity of the Virtual Keyboard
Auto-repeat: Allows the VKB to automatically repeat a key based on prescribed parameters

Who is it good for?
Business men/ women
Suppliers/ Invoice keepers
Students/ teachers
Tourists/ trekkers
High-tech employees
Lawyers/ accountants
Architects
Land surveyors/appraisers
Field engineers

Now that is REALLY cool...but I'm guessing it would take A LOT of getting used to. I would feel kind of stupid hitting my hands on the desk like that without actually feeling buttons.

8-o

No, I've never seen that before.

How weird. Makes me think of the tv screen that uses air. Combine the two and that's one really wacky setup. 8-o
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....

Very cool, but I'd feel foolish using it.

Interesting. I think it's good for mobile phones/smart phones/handheld devices, but you know what would be cool? A huge virtual laser keyboard on your floor, so you can type with your feet or whatever appendages. That way, it would be like playing Twister or Dance Dance Revolution at work. :-b
