    Virtual Laser Keyboard

    Advertisement



    So, I'm wondering if anyone has used one of these or knows someone who did. Currently debating getting the bluetooth one for my BlackBerry 7100; since typing lexture notes and long emails gets quite cumbersome with the built in keypad. - I checked out the foldable one, but its about the same price and surely not as cool looking.

    So if anyone has any opinions on this, feel free to reply or leave a pin. Thanks.

    Edit: Forgot to mention; if anyone knows where to find an 8700 (unlocked, as ill need it running on tmobile) for around 500 dollars; then I may just get the 8700 and not the keyboard... put the money from the keyboard toward the 8700.

    ~~~Posted via Blackberry @ wap.pinstack.com~~~wow, that is pretty cool. It almost sounds like a scam. (Too cool to be true). I might have to pick this baby up. I wonder if I can project it on to my steerinf wheel or windshield.? Hmmm?

    What I really need is a complete bb hud.

    Preety cool

    I think it would take a lot of getting used to. I still like the loud click feedback of the old IBM 101-key keyboards.

    was just thinking about this...seems like your hands would get in the way of the laser light...might be kinda like using a smart board...

    All the ratings I have found so far were good. There was one that said the battery time was low about 1.5 to 1.75 hours. The accuracy they said was not 100% but was still very good.

    Hey that would be cool. But it might be asking for too much.

    Re: Virtual Laser Keyboard

    If they had one at a local store I could go and check out and see used or attempt to use myself I would be more willing to try it. Buying from a random online dealer makes me nervious. And I can not pay via paypal. I would rather buy it off of someone on Ebday with paypal personally. Although the store could be wonderful. Just makes me a little nervous.

    Re: Virtual Laser Keyboard

    Anyone tried that moveable key keyboard? where you rearrange the magnetic keys anyway you like on a metalic base.

    Must one use a Blackberry compatible keyboard? If not, is there a magic box solution to use any keyboard?
