Sometimes carrying a compact keyboard around when you are looking for portability options along with your portable gadgets does not blend well, simply because it takes too much space. Even when you are working on your desktop or laptop system wouldn’t it be great to have a keyboard that is the size of your palm? Yes, a projection keyboard is here and that is the reason why all you have to carry around with your gadgets like smartphone or tablets is the hardware portion of the TKPBL042BK Wireless Keyboard by Elecom. Deemed as the first ever mobile projection keyboard, the Japanese company has hit the nail on the head as this surely looks promising.
The device connects to iOS and Android devices via the Bluetooth connectivity option and you can also use it through the USB port which by the way also charges the device on the go. The hardware measures only 38X29X75 mm and weighs 77 grams without the rechargeable batteries so it most definitely is portable enough to carry in your bag or pocket. The device is slated to be out next month and the pricing is the main factor. It will cost you around US $352 which is a hefty amount but hey, it does provide a good portability option if you can afford it.
Coming onto the keyboard bit of the device it is a very bright illuminated keyboard with clear key description and you can project it on any flat surface without much hassle. The touch works very fine and is very responsive, almost makes you feel like you are hitting real keyboard keys, of-course minus any physical feel of the thing.
