    Virtual Keyboard/ Wow Factor

    I posted a couple of links to a new technology that my friend Phil told me about. there are 2 companies competing to get these things into phones ect. They project an image of a keyboard on a surface that functions as a real keyboard.

    i think its neat but it needs to be incorporated right into the phone/palm

    Enjoy

    They are not availble on the market yet. I have heard they have some problems with type speed and multiple key hits. The Companies are trying to get contracts with Palm and other services to mass produce.
