Celluon Laserkey CL800BT

 

More than a year ago, we reviewed a curious but cool PDA accessory called the VKB Bluetooth Virtual Keyboard (BTVKB). Using lasers, it projected a virtual keyboard onto a flat surface and was designed to work with Bluetooth-enabled PDAs and smart...

The Celluon Laserkey CL800BT projects a cool laser keyboard onto any flat surface and is travel friendly.

The list of compatible devices is limited. The Celluon Laserkey CL800BT is also a bit pricey.

The Celluon Laserkey CL800BT definitely has wow factor with its laser-projected keyboard, but it works with a only limited number of PDAs, and the lack of tactile keys may be a turnoff to some.

"Great idea!"

 

I haven't used this device, however it looks like a brilliant idea.

Solves the poor data entry for PDA and other portable devices

Needs a flat surface to use it, does it work in strong sunlight?

Consumer review by:

the phone support nos., are fax lines in korea (+13hrs). they don't answer either email address. in the end had to return the product

Consumer review by:

"very good for PDA's"

 

tapping on a hard surface for a period of time can cause hand injuries. change that and it'll be a best buy...

small and compact

need to set up on a hard surface...problem to body

Consumer review by:

"Usable full size keyboard"

 

First time I tried this technology was about 3 years ago during a prototype demo in Hong Kong. The CL800BT performs reasonable for what it is designed to do.

Full size, small size, wow factor

Power consumption, lack of tactile feedback

Consumer review by:

"Not for even the most casual of users."

 

After using the Celluon Laserkey CL800BT at both CES 2006 and CeBIT 2006, I have decided that it just isn't ready to market. The device is very slow and sometimes unresponsive.

Light-weight, excellent keyboard layout.

Poor finger-position-recoginition, slow response, a little bulky.

While I havn't had the opportunity to give this device a live trial, simply looking at it causes a mild sense of skepticism as to it's accuracy. I think the idea of this type of keypad is intriguing. How many IT people service desktop's in filthy...

At the very least it stimulates a seemingly neglected area of the hardware engineer's mind that hasn't seen much innovation since the introduction of wireless keyboards

The technology needs time to develop, needs to be developed for desktop use in mind
