"Interesting application of laser technology..."3.0 starson by dubl_d
Pros: At the very least it stimulates a seemingly neglected area of the hardware engineer's mind that hasn't seen much innovation since the introduction of wireless keyboards.
Cons: The technology needs time to develop, needs to be developed for desktop use in mind.
Summary: While I havn't had the opportunity to give this device a live trial, simply looking at it causes a mild sense of skepticism as to it's accuracy. I think the idea of this type of keypad is intriguing. How many IT people service desktop's in filthy conditions and have to replace keyboards on a per visit basis. If the keyboard can be projected it would eliminate the sticky keys and broken space bars plagueing the industrial workstation. What if all we techies had to do was get out some glass cleaner and wipe the surface clean and VOILAH!!... a new keyboard, granted the laser projector isn't kapoot yet. I give an "A" for the idea but an "F" for execution because of the limited devices it would be used with. But hey, you gotta start somewhere right?
