(PHOENIX, AZ) -- iBIZ Technology Corp., a leading manufacturer and distributor of accessories for personal digital assistants (PDA) and hand-held devices, was covered in today's issue of the Boston Globe.
Michelle Johnson, Boston Globe Tech Freelance Columnist, called iBIZ's Virtual Laser keyboard a "virtual hunt & peck" technology. In the "now for something completely different" category, "The Virtual Laser Keyboard projects a laser image of a full-size keyboard onto any flat surface. To type, you tap on the image, which is reflected back to the PDA via a tiny camera embedded in the device. It's purported to even make keyboard tapping sounds."
"There are no mechanical moving parts whatsoever in the Virtual Laser Keyboard," said Ken Schilling, President & CEO of iBIZ Technology Corp. "It provides a projected image that is the perfect portable input device for PDAs. It's similar in responsiveness to regular keyboards, but extremely futuristic looking."
The Virtual Laser Keyboard is compatible with Palm, Pocket PCs, laptops and desktop PCs. The Virtual Laser Keyboard will be available for $99.99 from major retailers, e-commerce sites, and iBIZ Technology's own e-commerce site in 1st quarter 2004. An upcoming version for cell phones will be available in 4th quarter 2004.
