So Cool It Can’t Be Real: Bluetooth Laser Virtual Keyboard

How about this for a completely sterile keyboard

LaserkeybrdThe future is here with a keyboard from ThinkGeek that’s not really quite there. The Bluetooth Laser Virtual Keyboard is a tiny device (only 3.5-inches high) that projects a virtual keyboard onto your desk (or any flat surface) using a red diode laser. How cool is that? You even get the key click sounds when you type so you’re not too discombulated, and people won’t think you’re crazy. Why is that guy trying to type on his desk?

You can pair the device with any Bluetooth-enabled PDA or cell phone, and type away on this full size QWERTY keyboard, so it’s great travel accessory. The rechargeable battery will last about 120 minutes, so it’s really meant for “on-the-fly” use. An AC adaptor is included.

It’s compatible with PalmOS 5, PocketPC 2003, Windows Smartphone, Symbian OS, and Windows 2000/XP with limited Mac OSX Support. Mac users unfortunately won’t be able to set keyboard preferences like brightness, key-repeat rate and sensitivity. It sells for $189.99 at ThinkGeek.com.
