So where can we buy one? You think if we got up enough people they would let us do a group buy? Somebody contact them and tell them we want mice, not a mouse
If you don't take pride in your work, life get's pretty boring.
Rule of thumb is if you donít know what tool to buy next, then you probably donít need it yet.
Very cool indeed. I can't find anywhere selling them yet, but the price is reported to be about $100 US.

They also have a projection keyboard like that. It projects an image of a keyboard on your desk, and you tap the specific lighted area's...
Both of those would be pretty cool with a table type device.

And I just replaced my old Logitech mouse and keyboard!! Some how the Best Buy commercial is playing in my head. Jim.
edit: I commented before I looked at the video. Pretty amazing! Jim.

Been out for a couple of years (the keyboard), and I would expect them to carry the mouse when it is available as well.
The "no-mouse" looks like a great idea. However, with keyboard the tactical part is essential for me.
During WWII part of what I was into involved being a radio operator. Let's back up a bit. When I was in high-school, I worked as a typewriter repair "man." This was back in the good old days of mechanical levers, etc. making a hammer with a letter on it strike a ribbon transferring ink to the paper.
OK you have tuned up a typewriter. How do you know if all the flying type bars are not going to have collisions and that the moving carriage will return where it is supposed to when you throw the return lever? You type very fast. Well I learned to type faster than a good secretary. However, I was self taught. I used two fingers and the thumb on each hand.
This really messed me up when I finally took a typing class. However, I kept it up and finally learned to "touch type" like normal people.
Later the military put me into a typing class. My final was 102.2 words per minute and it wasn't even English. It was Morse-Continental code (you know, dots and dashes). This took finger power and coordination to get all those little mechanical parts to dance with each other and be nice.
Then, for six years of my college I had a professional typist transcribe my notes. I didn't even have a typewriter. Boy---did that ever kiss 102.2 bye-bye.
All of the preceding stuff was a lead in to: I cannot even vaguely imagine typing very fast without the tactile feed back of an actual keyboard. "Air guitar" may be one thing, however, "Air keyboard" seems like an entirely different story.
Gee Cynthia, you just got another "Old man story."
First of all you have to be smarter than the machine.
