It’s the keyboard for those who have no keyboard but want one.
All that’ s required is a flat surface and the Magic Cube does the rest. Developed by South Korean company, Celluon, the Magic Cube connects to a smartphone or tablet PC via Bluetooth, while projecting a full-sized, laser-generated keyboard onto a table.
The keyboard itself is merely a map for the fingers to follow. Each keystroke is detected by a built-in optical sensor and a micro-processor that translates individual finger positions into characters on the screen.
Celluon’s Jason Koo says the Magic Cube is a logical step forward in computer technology…
“Smartphone devices are too small for the real keyboard. Celluon’s unique technology enables a virtual keyboard when there’s a flat surface, which can function the same way as real keyboards.”
Koo says the Cube accurately translates 99 keystrokes out of 100, even when used on a wall. The company plans to develop a much smaller version that can be integrated with any smartphone.
“If this is achieved, we can dramatically improve current smartphones’ inconvenient typing function.”
And that, says Koo, means the days of thumb-typing may soon be over.
