The Future Has Arrived

Remember when you were promised all those amazing future tech innovations? Just around the corner was supposed to be a shining technology utopia with flying cars, personal space travel to distant galaxies, and bio-implantable cell phones. It'* almost disappointing enough to make you sit at home and watch old episodes of "Space 1999".

Don't lose hope! An amazing glimpse of this promised future has just arrived at ThinkGeek in the form of the Bluetooth Laser Virtual Keyboard. This tiny device laser-projects a keyboard on any flat surface... you can then type away accompanied by simulated key click sounds. It really is true future magic at its best. You'll be turning heads the moment you pull this baby from your pocket and use it to compose an e-mail on your bluetooth enabled PDA or Cell Phone. With 63 keys and and full size QWERTY layout the Laser Virtual Keyboard can approach typing speeds of a standard keyboard... in a size a little larger than a matchbook.
Price:
$179.99

That'* been on the internet geek sites for a couple years, but hasn't been released for sale yet that I know of. I would imagine the lack of 'feedback' feel would make it difficult to use.

Yes it'* been on the market, but it has been released for sale for several years now. It'* extremely flawed and most people view it as a novelty. Treocentral had them forever and finally sold their stock at a severe discount because nobody wanted them.
