Virtual Laser Keyboard Now Available

I-Tech have released their virtual laser keyboard. It certainly promotes portability, but, will it be a flash in the pan or technology that can be properly utilised? Feel free to comment below...

Funnily I was just looking @ this on a retailers website today.

Nice idea but ultimately rubbish methinks. Without keys that you can feel and press down on, not only will you make a lot of typo's - but prolly end up hurting your fingers a lot too.

It seems like it would be rather awkward with no key tension or anything.

It's cool and all but I don't see it being that great of a keyboard. Seems like it would be awkard typing because you can't feel the keys when you hit them thus making you mees up me thinks.

Lol, you could type by throwing a ball at the keys on the wall.
