Virtual keyboards have been around for years, projecting an image of a keyboard out onto a flat surface and using a camera to track your finger movements as you tap away on the projection. It’s a nice idea, and seems to solve a number of problems with other portable keyboard designs, being a snap to pack up and carry around.

We’ve always heard that, in practice, these kind of systems tend to fall pretty short of expectations, and don’t make a good replacement for a regular Bluetooth keyboard, or even the on-screen software ones already on our phones. At the CES in Las Vegas this week we went hands-on with the VK200 infrared keyboard to see just how usable it really was. Check out our video to see how it fared:
