New tech could spell end for keyboard

High-tech pen and virtual keyboard devices go on show at CeBIT

Innovations on display at the CeBIT show in Hanover promise to herald the end of keyboards as we know them. A virtual keyboard from iBIZ uses a low-powered laser to project a virtual keyboard onto any flat surface. An infrared beam in the base of the 6cm x 2cm x 2cm device is projected over the keyboard and a small CCD camera logs finger strokes.

"I can project an image anywhere and it picks up keystrokes with 100 per cent accuracy," said Sharon Weshler, European sales manager for iBIZ. "It's small enough to be portable and can be used on computers and potentially on any mobile computing device."

The device will be aimed at consumers and sold through major retail outlets from July.
