Smartphones are such versatile tools but my biggest beef with them is the unfriendliness of the form factor when trying to type. I’m amazed that after 52 years of doing typing on QWERTY keyboards that I make so many mistakes when entering a simple email or short text. Before smartphones when I had a Palm Pilot, my calendar and organizer, I invested in a portable keyboard that unfolded to a normal size. But it too was clumsy and meant I had to carry two items rather than one.
So I started looking for a solution that would make my smartphone a better email and texting environment. Enter the Brookstone Virtual Laser Projection Keyboard. It features:
- key chain projector that is lightweight and powered by a rechargeable lithium-ion battery
- laser technology that projects a virtual keyboard on any flat surface
- advanced optics to track your fingers as you type
- Bluetooth (R) wireless connectivity
It’s certainly cool to use although a bit pricey at $99.99. But if you are like me and a klutz with small keyboards, this is a nice solution.
