We all agree that projection keyboards look cool, and we can all forgive the awkward usage and non-tactile feel because it just screams sci-fi. But do you know what can make it even better? Well, how about adding a more memorable sci-fi element to it? That is just what Imp’s R2-D2 virtual keyboard does, and it will hopefully make your projection keyboard a look a bit more at home to use.

It connects to any device via Bluetooth 3.0, so it has that standard effective use distance of 10 meters. Compatible OS are Windows 7/8, Mac OS X, iOS and Android 4.0+. It has an internal 660mAh Li-ion battery, which charges via micro USB. Unfortunately though, it doesn’t come with pre-recorded holographic projections of lost data, and no, don’t even get your hopes up of finding a distress call from a certain alien princess.

Shipping starts for the R2-D2 Virtual Keyboard on August, and it will be available with an estimated price of about $330.
