Laser beam creates futuristic virtual keyboard
Perhaps Steve Jobs - that wonderful visionary - miscalculated.
Maybe he thought that by the time the iPhone was in development, humans would have evolved to have tiny fingertips and ultra-precise motor skills. But alas, most of us still have disturbingly 20th century-sized fingers, creating the need for a new scientific breakthrough to help us avoid smashing our sleek Apple products in fits of autocorrected fury.
Enter: the Cube Laser Virtual Keyboard, a small hand-held device that uses a laser to project a virtual keyboard onto any flat surface. The Cube connects to most Bluetooth-enabled devices, and its rechargeable battery lasts for 150 minutes. At $179.99, it’s not a cheap solution. But with simulated key click sounds, 63 keys and full-size QWERTY layout, it allows you to type on countertops, sidewalks or someone’s belly—provided it's flat.
