A Japanese company by the name of Elecom is one of the first out the gate to introduce a projection keyboard to market.

A Japanese company by the name of Elecom is one of the first out the gate to introduce a projection keyboard to market. The TK-PBL042BK wireless projection keyboard simply requires nothing more than a flat surface and its host to carry either USB or Bluetooth connectivity, which means iOS and Android will natively support it.

When connecting the device to a host over USB it will operate as a USB HID keyboard while simultaneously getting a battery recharge.

The device itself measures only 38.0 x 29.0 x 75.0 mm and weighs in at a mere 77g without the rechargeable battery (said to provide up to two hours of continuous use).

The source has indicated that the K-PBL042BK will arrive in early April. Elecom has priced it at 28,875 JPY which works out to around US $352.
