Projected keyboard developed for smartphones
Posted: 16-May-2002 [Source: Cellular News]

[New product from Virtual Devices has QWERTY keyboard projected onto a flat surface from a smartphone or PDA allowing users to leave laptops at home.]

"An interesting new keyboard has been developed that has no physical keys. Instead, it projects the image of a QWERTY keyboard onto a flat surface, and a camera notes hand and finger movements to work out which buttons have been "pressed".

Used with Smart Phones and PDAs, the VKey provides a practical way to do email, word processing and spreadsheet tasks, allowing the user to leave the laptop computer at home.

"The VKey allows the business user to avoid lugging the laptop computer around and eliminates all of the laptop airport security hassles," says Peter Hanowich, President and CEO of Virtual Devices, the company that developed this technology. "This is the ultimate solution for travel-weary laptop users," says Hanowich. VKey observes the user's finger movements to interpret and record keystrokes and mouse functions. "And since the virtual keyboard is an image projected in light, it completely disappears when not in use."
