The virtual keyboard found on smartphones and tablets is great for most people but some still have difficulty navigating input to their devices. The Magic Cube is a projection device that presents a virtual keyboard to a large screen, with full operability.
The Magic Cube is an ultra-portable, full-sized virtual computer keyboard.The Cube is a compact and versatile product; it's a multi-touch capable mouse, a laser projection keyboard and a handwriting recognition device, all in one easy-to-use product.
The projection laser displays the keyboard layout, measuring approx. 241 x 106 mm, onto any opaque flat surface. Keystrokes are recognized and then relayed via an invisible infrared layer combined with an optical sensor. The recognition process works as follows: When the user presses a key on the projected keyboard, the infrared layer is interrupted. This produces UV reflections that are recognized by the sensor in three dimensions, allowing the system to assign a coordinate (keyboard character).
Use with iPhones, SmartPhones, Tablets and iPad. The Virtual Laser Keyboard provides a practical way to do e-mail, word processing and spreadsheet tasks, enabling users to leave laptops and computers at home.
Turn heads the moment you pull out this revolutionary accessory. This tiny device laser-projects a keyboard on any flat surface that smoothly connects to your mobile device, iPad, iPhone or laptop. You can then type away accompanied by simulated key click sounds. With 63 keys and and full size QWERTY layout the Virtual Laser Keyboard can approach typing speeds of a standard keyboard, but comes in a convenient, portable small size.
The large keys and familiar layout of the Projection Keyboard allows for input speeds greater than that of 50 words-per-minute with error rates similar to that of a standard physical keyboard, thus setting a new benchmark in mobile input performance.
