Computers are one of the most popular electronic devices for decades. The mobility increased with the development of laptops. Now a days even smartphones too have powerful processor and memory built in it. In Desktops, keyboard and mouse are the standard input devices which are in use for very long time. In laptops, a touch pad is used instead of a mouse. The design and innovation in desktop and laptop are rapidly changing day to day. But the keyboard and mouse still remain the same. But not anymore. Here we have an innovative concept and design of keyboard and mouse from Celluon called “Magic Cube” and “evoMouse” which can be used as keyboard and mouse respectively.
Magic Cube as Keyboard
It is a compact sized and portable projection keyboard where a laser beam of keyboard layout is projected on the surface from the device i.e and virtual image of the keyboard layout will be projected on the surface. When the user touches the virtual keys, the virtual keystrokes are detected by the Magic Cube device which is connected to computers, laptops or the smartphones. The device can also be used as multi-touch mouse.
