Are we going to see the iBIZ laser Virtual keyboard anytime soon? After problems with some of the suppliers (including lawsuits) which resulted in some doubts about this product ever seeing the light (no pun intended), iBIZ has announced that is has signed a worldwide exclusive license and distribution agreement with Virtual Devices Inc. Virtual Devices, headquartered in Pittsburgh, specializes in the development of virtual input device technologies including design and development of a Virtual Keyboard.
VDI owns key intellectual property rights, patents and patent-pending applications related to its virtual data input products. Virtual Devices provides significant advantages through the dynamics of their virtual keyboard design, including patent protection and control of the intellectual property.
The virtual keyboard uses light to project a full-sized computer keyboard onto almost any surface, and disappears when not in use. Used with Smart Phones, PDAs, and any computing platform the Virtual Keyboard provides a practical way to do email, word processing and spreadsheet tasks, allowing the user to leave the laptop computer at home.
Ken Schilling, President and CEO of iBIZ, commented, "After careful due diligence we have concluded VDI adds significant value to our company through VDI's portfolio of innovative and forward-looking products, including a robust virtual keyboard design."
