Siemens to Offer Virtual Keybord for Mobile Devices
Posted: 29-May-2002 [Source: Siemens press release]

[Siemens to be exclusive German distributor of VKB's virtual keyboard which projects an image of a computer keyboard onto a flat surface.]

The virtual keyboard ushers in a new era of mobile communications: this device projects the image of a computer keyboard onto practically any flat surface. An infrared system senses the letters and numbers typed by the user and communicates them by wire or radio to a PDA, mobile phone or PC. This initially external solution is as easy to use as a conventional computer keyboard.

The virtual keyboard is based on a chipset that will also be easy to integrate directly into PDAs and mobile phones. "Now mobile phones or PDAs can at last also have a decent-sized keyboard," explains Boaz Arnon, CEO of VKB Inc. "In this way the users can type in e-mails or long texts easily and effectively wherever they happen to be and can leave the laptop at home." Arnon also predicts that it will for example be used in medical environments where physicians need sterile or mobile computers in operating theaters or at the patient's bedside. "The virtual keyboard adds a new innovation to our range of mobile solutions," says Asriel Eisinger, product manager at SPLS. "Together with various Siemens Groups we currently explore applications of this technology within the company." The product was jointly introduced by Siemens and VKB at this year's CeBIT.
