Siemens is showing this virtual keyboard at CeBit. Wicked cool, and (sorry I can't resist) think about the possibilities for cybersex!

The keyboard is really neat, but it really doesn't solve any problems except for smaller devices like PDAs... If you are carrying a full sized screen, then adding a keyboard isn't that big of a deal. Perhaps when they make afordable headmounted or sunglass monitors that might be a waktable idea.

As for cyber sex, I am not seeing where you are comming from.

GameMaster: It really does solve problems, the blurb mentioned that some of the uses would be places where a real keyboard has problems, like in a surgical suite. A doctor using computer assited tools could have a virtual keyboard on the sterile field.

There are already other solutions for the medical feild like speah to text... Although, I can see the want and need for the keyboard in such a clean enviroment. My point is that the company that makes it is focused on mobile, and it really isn't a mobile solution for labtops yet (due to screen size.

Yes, his mind is in the gutter, and I still don't see how projecting a key board would make CS any better... guess I am jus not that imaginitve.

Yeah, i am not seeing how this would improve CS. But then again i am just not in that mindset. I am sure zorro could think of some ways.

The possibilites are virtually endless, though I am not sure if this is really the key to good CS. I think I'll stick to reality.........Z

Z, was that an intended pun? If it was, I must complement you on your subtlety.

This would be pretty nifty. However, I do like typing on a physical keyboard. I don't think I'd like a portrayed images as much.

I'm more of an Object-Kind-Of-Guy!

yeppers, those puns were intended. I wasn't sure how many would catch them, but I am sure many are looking for them in My posts. I was just happy to get both in the same sentence. Thanks.
I wish that type of keyboard had been available when I was still in school. I could have blamed My incessant tapping on the desks as fingerig practice........Z

Well, I don't know if quantumfluff found this story on /. or on his own, but some of the omments on /. address the issues at hand well. And macaddikt, you might not want to read this, but those of us who may have out heads in the gutter can get a laugh out of these comments. Now I just have to find someone with whom I can type my long essay. I have to make a point of ensuring the Insert key is turned on .

Well, just because you said i should not read them i decided to take a gander. The fist link was no good, but the second one worked. All i have to say is that some guys have way to much free time on their hands to sit and think that stuff up.
