Yeah...I saw something about this, maybe a month or two ago. It looks quite nice.....it sure would eat a lot more power than your current keyboards, but the benefits may be worth it.

that might be cool for lap tops but a real keyboard would be much more superior for home PC's. typing on a table woulnt be very comfortable.

virtual keyboards will not do well for al ong time because people are used to pressing buttons. Strangely enough, without looking at a keyboard I can often sense when i've missed a key.
