Celluon Bluetooth Virtual Keyboard

Here’s an idea: A keyboard that doesn’t really exist, or that can exist on any opaque, flat surface.

At compactimpact.com, a crazy site that says about itself: Some people think “Compact Impact” stands for a small impact, others consider it as something small with a big impact. 

 I found this unusual device that projects a keyboard (measuring approx. 240mm x 105mm) onto a flat, opaque surface and tracks your finger movements, translating them into keystrokes. Size of device: 93mm x 39mm x 37mm. . Retails for about $160.
