We thought that by the year 2000, we’d have teleportation devices and flying cars. While we didn’t get anything this fancy, we still got some pretty nifty gizmos, one being the Cube Laser Virtual Keyboard. Because you really can’t get more futuristic than lasers.
This matchbook-sized rectangular device will emit a red light that simulates a keyboard onto pretty much any flat surface. With this device, you have all the form and function of a normal keyboard, but it takes up less than a third of the space. You can even use it as a mouse in mouse mode so you can use your finger instead of a bulky and/or slow mouse. It does have a rather expensive price tag on it though at $169.99. But! You are paying for convenience as it’s size works for any situation, and needs only a flat surface to function. This item is compatible with your iPhone, iPad, Blackberry, Android, Mac, Windows, or Windows phone.
