A laser keyboard is the latest in projection technology that wirelessly displays a virtual gaming mechanical keyboard outline onto a flat surface, allowing you to type almost anywhere with no cords or bulky equipment. It is simply a wireless virtual keyboard display representing the physical hardware, which is projected on any surface that can allow flat typing. This keyboard is projected by a device the size of a computer mouse, onto a flat surface that is non-reflective. Such surface could be a table or desk, or even the wall. This makes the keyboards portability very easy task. The device is applicable with Blackberries, iPhones, Androids and other Smart-phones already in the market.
The laser keyboards work as wireless capable devices whereby lasers reflect a full QWERTY key on the surface using as red diode laser. This type of keyboard involves neither switches nor mechanical moving parts. The device stands up on a rectangular base and others do it by the help of a stand. After positioning the device, the next step involves powering it up and connecting to the necessary tool, maybe a Smartphone or PDA.
The connection is met through USB cable or Bluetooth wireless technology. The mechanism in which it operates is based on the mechanism of optical recognition. This allows one to tap their data on the key images projected on a flat surface sending the input data to a word processing document, e-mail or other programs that require typing. It also enables production of real tapping sounds like the one on the normal keyboards.
Maximizing your room for typing is the other benefit with these keyboards. Normally, Smart-phones, tablets or PDAs come with touch keyboards that are usually small in size. For people with fat fingers, it becomes uneasy typing through such small keys. The projected keyboard offers bigger keys that are almost the size of the normal computer keyboard. Through such presentation, it becomes an easy task for any person to pass their data through to the small devices applied in communication.
The maintenance of virtue keyboards is simple making it another great benefit on the users side. Unlike the normal keyboard, this technology uses no cords or movable parts. Such parts also add to bulkiness which is cancelled with the case of keyboards embracing the laser technology. The parts on the other end suffer damage if in any case water or other fluid spills on them. Virtue keyboards are never affected by such thus making their maintenance easy and simple as they also seem to be damage free.
Laser keyboards have brought with them many advantages. One of them is portability because it is now easier to carry around a computer. The conventional keyboard is much heavier than the projection keyboard. Secondly, there are people who have large fingers and usually find it difficult to type on phones and tablets because of the small sized screens and keypads. Typing has now been made easier for them from anywhere because they just need to use the laser keyboard which projects the keyboard into a conventional size.
