Product Description

Epic is a mobile projection keyboard that doubles as a virtual multi-touch mouse. With a single flick of switch, Epic projects a full-size QWERTY keyboard in a safe form of laser. It is easily paired with any smart devices by simplified Bluetooth capability. It is compatible with iOS 4.0 and later, Android 4.0 and later, Windows XP and later, Blackberry 10, and any other Bluetooth HID devices. Epic can be used virtually on any flat and opaque surfaces as an input device.

Customer Reviews

I contacted a customer service rep here in the USA about it.

It is just a bit too difficult to type on if you are a fast typer.
J Walt
I wouldn't use it instead of a normal keyboard, but this is fun!

I have to say I was really excited to get but beyond the "cool" factor I think it's not exactly what I bargained for. Most importantly for me, is that I type very quickly and the keyboard simply cannot read my finger movements and it ends up typing gibberish. I find it only works if I take it really slow or use only two fingers. But that kind of defeats the purpose for me to have a keyboard rather than use the one in the tablet or phone. That's a warning to those of you who type quickly.

Other more minor points: Even at its brightest illumination you can't see very well if you are in a well lit room. Depending on where you might use it that could affect your decision to buy it. You do need a very flat surface, which they tell you about, but you also need some space. Don't expect to shoot a quick email while sitting on the bus. The red LED did hurt my eyes a bit but I suspect that just takes getting used to-- don't think I'll ever get to that point because I don't think I'll be using it much.

Some people are commenting about the annoying beeping sounds. The instructions do explain how to turn this down (I think Fn left arrow). You can even silent it but then you have to be even more careful looking at the screen to make sure the device "registered" your key click.

The rating is well deserved.. It did take a little bit of time to get used to. Once the settings were locked in the keyboard worked great. I will have to have a little cheat sheet for the Short cuts but after that it will be smooth. The keyboard worked better on my tablet than for my phone, I have Galaxy Note 10.1 AND Galaxy Note 3. The mouse feature is great. You will find that it HAS to be on a level surface.

I saw this device advertised during the Super Bowl 2014. I thought it was one of the neatest things around. I often told my wife that if I had a keyboard for my phone, I wouldn't even need my laptop. I bought it last week and plan on returning it soon.

First off, the device holds a two hour charge, so if you are going to do some major typing for whatever reason, you will need to plug it in to continue typing. I was going to take a break from typing when the device was flashing that it had only about 5 minutes of power left.

Secondly, the keyboard is hard to get used to. The instructions say to "hunt and peck" when first using it, so that you get used to the virtual keyboard. I have been typing for years, and that method of typing was painfully slow and frustrating. If your finger is blocking the projector, you will most likely type a wrong key. Even though I hit the space bar, I would get random letters where the space was supposed to be. So it would take me extra time to delete the extra letters. I would also get numbers in the middle of my words if my fingers reached too far beyond my intended letter.

Thirdly, the light issue. I was sitting in my dining room with a north and west exposure. It was dark enough in order for me to see the keyboard without going blind. But when the setting sun shone through the window, it became extremely difficult to see the letters. Possibly another color of the keys would have worked. When it got too dark to see, turning on the light completely wiped out the keyboard, so I had to quit.

Maybe when the technology improves the keyboards will be a better quality. Until then, I'll be using my laptop for word processing and email (I don't have a tablet). And the $100 I spent at Best Buy will go to something else more practical. It is a cool conversational piece and I would have never dreamed up something like a holographic keyboard. But this one just isn't there yet.

Giving this a 4 star rating because it lacks a manual to tell you how to use the keyboard but this is a very nice product. The keyboard doesn't take long to get familiar with.... Just played around with it to figure out the keystroke and beeps. Out of the box very easy to setup and use.

Pros: compact, rechargeable, full keyboard, bluetooth, well-packaged and good instructions, comes with driver CD if you need it

Cons: Not recognized by all bluetooth devices, USB charge only, imperfect detection when typing, requires flat non-reflective area to use.

I received the EPIC as a gift, and while it paired flawlessly with my iPhone, I could not get Windows 7 to even find the device using an up-to-date bluetooth (4.0) connection.

It is an incredibly neat device, and amazing that there is such a thing as a tiny little projector that can pick up keystrokes. However, the actual usefulness of the device is extremely limited. If you are looking to text or type out a quick email it would take more time to pull out and set up the keyboard than it would to just type it using your on-screen keyboard. Also, unless you spend a significant amount of time sitting around with mobile devices around flat surfaces within reach, you won't find yourself using this as much as you would think.

If I need to do any serious work that requires a significant amount of typing, I would simply use my PC. The Epic, unfortunately, was not designed to be used on a PC other than as a mouse. In any case, I could not get it to work on my computer, despite the fact it has a bluetooth connection with the latest drivers.

The keyboard requires a bit of a learning curve, apparently, in order to be able to type with any kind of reasonable speed. Again, this limits its functionality, as unless you have large hands that cannot manipulate on-screen keyboards, you will find yourself typing just as fast, if not faster, on your mobile device.

In the end, I just cannot recommend the Epic.
