Looks like their hope is to have this technology available for cell phones,
computer monitors, and more, not just a PDA. I wrote about this about my
weblog this morning, too. I love this kind of thing!! And like you, I want
one. ;-)  I already use a portable keyboard (Targus Stowaway keyboard) with
my PDA that I love, but having this virtual keyboard would mean just taking
the tiny laser sensing device with me rather than the folded up keyboard.
My portable keyboard isn't much bigger than my Visor, but I nonetheless see
the virtual keyboard as even more versatile, smaller, and all those good
things. So space-agey, too, ya know? Fun stuff.

Beam me the keyboard, Scotty!
