Just a quick reminder I do not have any affiliation with the people or products I may have posted under One Cool Thing, so there is no pressure to buy anything. These are just things that I’ve bumped into along the way and thought, huh, that’s kinda neat. So I have no idea if these things work, nor do I make any claims, offer any warranties, or accept any responsibility for their working or not as promised.
You like them, you buy them, you’re on your own.
One of my smaller frustrations in life is that I can’t keep up with the rest of the thumb-tribe when it comes to SMS or text entry into other small hand-held devices. Frankly, mastering a keyboard is difficult enough. So here is a rather cool gadget that may be of interest to all of you who dare not miss a key-stroke on your Blackberries.

Remember when you were promised all those amazing future tech innovations? Just around the corner was supposed to be a shining technology utopia with flying cars, personal space travel to distant galaxies, and bio-implantable cell phones. It’s almost disappointing enough to make you sit at home and watch old episodes of “Space 1999.”
Don’t lose hope! An amazing glimpse of this promised future has just arrived at ThinkGeek in the form of the Bluetooth Laser Virtual Keyboard. This tiny device laser-projects a keyboard on any flat surface. You can then type away accompanied by simulated key click sounds. It really is true future magic at its best.
Connects to PDAs, smartphones, and computers using bluetooth.
Projects a full size keyboard onto any flat surface.
Allows the convenience of regular keyboard typing in a tiny form factor.
Rechargeable battery lasts for 120 minutes of continuous typing.
Tiny size only 3.5 inches high.
Compatible with PalmOS 5, PocketPC 2003, Windows Smartphone, Symbian OS, and Windows 2000/XP. Limited Mac OSX Support.
They say it works as fast as a regular keyboard. Hell, I’m geeky enough that I just want to try it out.
Xross that Line
