Star Wars fans are no doubt familiar with the scene where R2D2 projects a hologram of Princess Leia asking for help. Now you can relive that scene with the R2D2 virtual keyboard. However, instead of a hologram of Princess Leia, R2D2 would instead project a virtual keyboard.
The R2D2 Virtual Keyboard is a product of a collaboration between Japanese retailer Runatown and electronics company Imp. Measuring 70 mm wide, 97 mm tall, and 49 mm in diameter, this droid projects a virtual keyboard on a flat surface when switched on and paired via Bluetooth with your mobile device. This will allow the user to type on the projected keyboard just like a normal keyboard but minus the tactile feedback. The projected image emanates from a red laser diode which can be adjusted for brightness.
The virtual keyboard has 68 keys and a projection size of 98 mm x 238 mm (about 4″ x 9″). R2D2 creates his signature beeping sound when powered up and down as well as when changing settings. If you miss the sound of your keyboard when typing, you can create sound effects from the settings. This keyboard projector is compatible with iOS, Android, MacOS, Windows and Blackberry devices. It runs on a lithium ion rechargeable battery and has an operating time of about two hours on a full charge.
