Star Wars R2D2 Virtual Keyboard - Let The Force Help You Type Better
Remember the original Star Wars episode when R2-D2 projected Princess Leia’s hologram and helped her ask General Kenobi’s help in her struggle against the Empire? Based on the same idea of projecting a hologram, the Star Wars R2-D2 Keyboard is a very cute little laser virtual keyboard designed to help you better type long texts while keeping a very small and portable format.

ALSO CHECK the AirType Keyboardless Keyboard and the Keychain CTX Virtual Keyboard we featured earlier.

The R2-D2 virtual keyboard is about the size of an iPhone, it works via Bluetooth 3.0 and is compatible with all iPhone models, all Android devices, Windows and Apple laptops and desktop PC’s as well as most Bluetooth enabled gadgets. The laser keyboard has a full QWERTY layout with 68 keys, is powered by an 660mAh rechargeable internal battery which allows about 2 hours of usage on a full charge (3 hours), has light intensity, sound and sensitivity settings as well as R2-D2 specific sound effects while typing!
On the … dark side of the offer, the R2-D2 Virtual Keyboard will set you back $339, but hey … no price is too high if you wanna be a real Jedi!
