The TK-PBL042BK wireless projection keyboard device will, as usual, project a keyboard that illuminates in red light on a flat surface, where it is capable of detecting just which keys are pressed thanks to a sensor that will track the movement of one’s fingers.
The Elecom TK-PBL042BK Projection Keyboard will work with both iOS and Android devices via Bluetooth and it can also be connected to devices via USB.
Elecom’s TK-PBL042BK is extremely portable, tipping the scales at just 77 grams and requires far less space than a standard keyboard.
The projected keyboard comes with a standard key pitch of 19mm, where it is capable of handling up to 350 words per minute – that should be good enough for most folks.
Apart from that, you are able to help save energy on this by adjusting the keyboard’s brightness up to three different levels.
In addition, a “mouse mode” is supported, letting it function as a touchpad of sorts as you move your finger in the area over the projected keyboard.
The TK-PBL043BK will go on sale in Japan mid-April for 28,875 yen (US $348), which is a hefty price tag considering you can get a tablet for about that much.
