Need type something quick on the road, maybe a blog? Instead of struggling typing with those tiny QWERTY keyboard, how about a full size keyboard generated from a device the size of a cellphone?. It’s called the I-Tech Virutal Laser Keyboard. It’s infrared and laser to project an image of a keyboard onto a flat surface. The device is blue-tooth enabled; therefore it worked with laptops, PDA and cellphone that support blue-tooth. Here is the complete list of supported devices. In addition, it also create sound effects (clicking) and a smart time-out feature to conserve battery life.


From the company website: You can use the VKB (Virtual PC Keyboard) with both your laptop and PC or with a compatible mobile device, Smartphone and PDA. The I-Tech VKB reacts exactly like a real keyboard. Direction technology based on optical recognition enables the user to tap the images of the keys, complete with realistic tapping sounds(!), which feeds into the compatible PDA, Smartphone, laptop or PC.

It’s available now at $179.99 in various keyboard layouts.

About the size of a small cellular phone, (90 x 34 x 24 mm), the VKB enables users to type texts or e-mails as easily as with a ordinary keyboard. Imagine how easy it would be, if you had a proper mobile phone keyboard that fits in your pocket…

The I-Tech Virtual Keyboard uses a light projection of a full-sized computer keyboard on almost any surface. Used with PDA’s and Smart Phones, the Virtual Keyboard provides a practical way to do e-mail, word processing and spreadsheet tasks, enabling users to leave laptops and computers at home.
VKB’s adaptable technology studies the user’s finger movements to interpret and record keystrokes. Because the virtual keyboard is an image projected by light, it disappears completely when not in use.

When using the VKB settings can be changed either via your laptop, your PC or your compatible Smartphone and PDA:


  • Sound: controllable Virtual Keyboard sound effects (keyclicks)
  • Connection: Connection to the appropriate Laptop/PC port
  • Intensity: Intensity of the projected Virtual Keyboard
  • Timeouts: coordinated timeouts to conserve the Virtual Keyboard’s battery life
  • Sensitivity: adjustable sensitivity of the Virtual Keyboard
  • Auto-repeat: Allows the VKB to automatically repeat a key based on prescribed parameters
