My cousin bought one and he got rid of it because it was hard to type with.  He said it was cool, but impractical.

 

Just think within a few decades keyboards may be obsolete anyway.


Hey.  Stop reading.  The post is over.

They are already hear, you can get them. The question is when they become popular.. I don't think they really will. They are inefficient,  and serve close to non practical use.

 

Also that picture is very deceiving, most of the laser keyboards require the room to be dark ( which is again impractical ). I really don't think they will become in widespread use..

 

EDIT: Not to mention they are slow. I type very fast ( at around 74 WPM on last test ) and on laser keyboards you have to type slower to avoid mistakes..

 

They are awful at the moment

It is mindless anti-government idiocy. If it isn't turned back I predict the end of this country as a world power. Simply put the need to educate our entire population like any sane country is sen as wrong by the cult that practice this foolish idiocy. So is simple workers rights, child labor and every other sane policy of the modern world."

It's a novel idea, but I don't see myself using it. When using my 'traditional' keyboard, I can feel the keys, as well as the key boundaries. Much easier to type quickly (not that I've used a laser keyboard, but I can imagine it).

Hmm... I'll really love this thing on my smartphone, not on my computer, though. Maybe when it get smaller.

Maybe we could just connect our smartphones to the computer and use it from there.

Why?

Voice recognition is already good, but telepathic is much easier than typing when it works.

 

I imagine a world soon where keyboards will only be used in public places; and that will be rare because there are very few places besides school where people need to type.  Even more so when we move to a largely cashless/cardless society. 

 

Even schools could provide that access to its students easily, but I'm pretty sure computers in school settings will be much much different by then.  School itself shouldn't exist in its current form very much longer, but that is up to politics not technology.  We all know politics are way behind.
