Using lasers to create a virtual keyboard? This seems to be a new concept existed in science fiction movies.Yes, please don't doubt your eyes! It has been come true.Are you a crazy sci-fi fan or electronics-lover? It must be your favorite.The biggest feature of DFRobot's laser projection keyboard is made by yourself. After a few quick and simple assembly and calibration process, your laser projection keyboard is ready to work!
A laser projection keyboard is a form of computer input device whereby the image of a virtual keyboard is projected onto a surface: when a user touches the surface covered by an image of a key, the device records the corresponding keystroke.The projection is realized in four main steps and via three modules: projection module, sensor module and illumination module. The main devices and technologies used to project the image are a diffractive optical element, red laser diode, CMOS sensor chip and an infrared (IR) laser diode.
The Laser Projection Keyboard Kit is based on the open-source laser keyboard project designed by RoboPeak Team. The laser keyboard works just like a standard keyboard on your PC/MAC with the help of the related signal processing software designed by RoboPeak. The signal processing software also supports turning your laser keyboard kit into a multi-touch pad.As an open-source project, you can freely make any changes/improvement to the current design and go through the implementation detail of the kit.
