virtual keyboard
Last modified: Thursday, October 27, 2005 

A virtual keyboard is where a full-size image of a QWERTY keyboard is projected onto any surface. Touching the image of a key  generates a unique electronic signal corresponding to a key's image. Using a virtual keyboard eliminates the chance of breakage and infection transfer.  Additionally virtual keyboards require  no cleaning and they have no wires, buttons, or switches. Virtual keyboards are also compatible with many Smartphones and PDAs. [Adapted from Virtual Devices]

A virtual keyboard is also called a projection keyboard. VKEY is the trademarked name of the virtual keyboard developed by Virtual Devices Inc.
