Laser-Sharp Typing

Sick of lugging a laptop around for typing tasks on the go? Now you can project a keyboard almost anywhere.

January 21, 2015

Are you relying on that “Sent from my iPhone” message to make up for your thumbs’ inability to type a readable e-mail? Stop the excuses and upgrade to the QWERTY lifestyle, mobile edition. Epic is a virtual keyboard displayed by a projector the size of a deck of cards. After connecting Epic to your mobile device via Bluetooth, simply tap the keyboard image that’s projected onto any flat, opaque surface to input data. In some ways it’s better than an actual keyboard, because Epic’s multitouch mouse function supports all those fancy gestures you’ve gotten used to using on your touchscreen. It’s got a built-in rechargeable battery with an easy-access power-saving function. It takes a little getting used to, but the company promises that the sounds built into each keystroke will help you through what they call a “short” learning curve.
