i.Tech Virtual Keyboard verdict: tough on those fingers

i.Tech Virtual Keyboard verdict: tough on those fingers

Back in December I asked whether we could find it in ourselves to give the i.Tech Virtual Keyboard a second chance, and it was poor Judie over at Gear Diary who had to put it through its paces. I say "poor Judie" not because she hates playing with sexy gadgets - quite the opposite - but in the name of getting a working, projected keyboard on her desk she's had to delve far deeper into Bluetooth stacks and the vagaries of Windows service packs than any sane individual would wish on another.

So was it worth her pain and misery and, since I know you're a cruel soul and care more about how you should spend your hard earned florins, is it something you should go out and buy?

Gear Diary gives away the i.Tech Virtual Keyboard!

Gear Diary gives away the i.Tech Virtual Keyboard!

Earlier on today I posted about how Judie over at Gear Diary has an i.Tech Virtual Keyboard in for review.  Well, what I didn't know at the time was that she's planning to give it away once she's written about it! 

Entering is really simple, all you have to do is name your favourite Sci-Fi movie or book, as well as a couple of sentences explaining your choice.  Judie will announce the winner on January 16th, the day after she posts the full i.Tech review, and she'll even foot the bill for worldwide shipping so it doesn't matter where you're located.  Good luck!

The i.Tech Virtual Keyboard Give-Away [Gear Diary]

Can we give the i.Tech Virtual Keyboard a second chance?

Can we give the i.Tech Virtual Keyboard a second chance?

I think that for all of us there are products out there that we know are flawed and yet we still want them; for me, the i.Tech Virtual Keyboard is one such gadget.  The idea of a laser projected keyboard, turning any flat surface into an input device, gets me so excited I can't quite sit still; despite reviews pounding it for the complete absence of tactile feedback, the eventual repetitive strain on your fingers from bashing a desk, and the general wonkiness of its laser technology, I still want one.

So I'm glad to see that on of my favourite reviewers, Judie over at Gear Diary, has a Bluetooth Virtual Keyboard in for testing.  We've only got some unboxing photos to sate us so far, but Judie is promising the full review on January 15th.  If if ends up less than glowing, might I suggest "How the i.Tech Virtual Keyboard was meant to change my life but instead broke my heart" as a title?

Eleksen add more controls to fabric keyboard concept

Eleksen add more controls to fabric keyboard concept

We're unashamedly impressed by Eleksen's clever fabric keyboard technology here at SlashGear; their original roll-up 'board seems like a far better mobile solution than i.Tech's Virtual Keyboard, and subsequent forays of the concept into areas like embedded iPod controls in clothing have been warmly reviewed.  Now the company is teasing us with another concept design, this time making the most of both sides of the fabric.
