Well, you should know that Nanochick was onto something with her suspicions about this product ...

wonder if it actually works well.

In fact, this product was evaluated about two years ago, and found wanting. Here is the CNET review:

The good: Compact and sleek form factor; cool concept.

The bad: Limited number of compatible PDAs; doesn't work with Windows Mobile 2003 Second Edition; expensive; poor user guide and tech support; lack of tactile keys might not be for everybody.

The bottom line: The VKB proves that image isn't everything. Despite looking cool, the keyboard takes some getting used to and needs better support options.

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. You'll be turning heads the moment you pull this baby from your pocket and use it to compose an e-mail on your bluetooth enabled PDA or Cell Phone. With 63 keys and and full size QWERTY layout the Laser Virtual Keyboard can approach typing speeds of a standard keyboard... in a size a little larger than a matchbook.

Whoa...this looks really neat...wonder if it actually works well..
