We've seen virtual keyboards before, but the technology has never quite taken off.   But this is quite exceptional.  UK-based Light Blue Optics (LBO) has unveiled a revolutionary compact projector that lets users interact with images projected onto a flat surface, essentially turning it into a touch screen.  Remarkably, it has built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity, which allows users to access and connect with internet-based applications and engage in social networking and multimedia sharing via the projector itself, which runs Adobe Flash Lite 3.1.
