VIRTUAL KEYBOARD
If computer monitors can shrink to almost nothing, why not keyboards? Basing on this idea the virtual keyboard was developed. A laser beam projects a glowing red outline of a keyboard on a desk or other flat surface. An infrared plane light is then projected just above & parallel to the surface. At the time of tapping the outline keyboard, the reflection from the infrared light projected to the Sensor. It can tell which keys you are trying to strike by the way that reflection changes. It disappears when not in use. It can be called as Virtual Keyboard.

HOW THE VKB WORKS ???


Steps: (1) Template creation (Projection Module) (2) Reference plane illumination (Micro-illumination) (3) Map reflection coordinates (Sensor Module) (4) Interpretation and communication (Sensor Module)

VIRTUAL KEYBOARD (VKB) SETTINGS


Setting up the Virtual Keyboard requires a driver to be installed. This provides access to various settings. Sound: Users can control the virtual keyboard sound effects (key clicks). Intensity: Control the intensity of the projected infrared keyboard. Connection: Connection to the appropriate Laptop/PC port.

Sensitivity: Users can adjust the sensitivity of the virtual keyboard. Timeouts: Adjustable timeouts to conserve the virtual keyboard's battery life.It is of two types: (i) The keyboard turn itself off after a specified idle time. (ii) Simply turns off projection, allowing a restart without needing to re-enable the keyboard. Auto-repeat: Allows the VKB to automatically repeat a key based on prescribed parameters.

It is costly than the general

use. We can create multilingual keyboard, just by changing the holographic optical element in the projection module. It is easy to create text message, email & other text documents by using this in supported mobile phones.

keyboard. It is required to charge the Battery regularly. Surrounding lights create a problem for the user.

CONCLUSION
As we know Necessity is the mother of invention.

Scientists hunger for development of efficient technology which makes our life easy living. In this aspect, virtual key board plays a vital role. Replacement of a large key board with a pocket size portable virtual key board has a wide access in almost all fields. It seems to have brought the key to get success in the IT fields to our pocket in a very convenient way.
