Bluetooth Laser Virtual Keyboard!!!

Well, technology innovations like these can anyday, anytime produce paroxysms of tech lust in anyone, never mind the gear heads among us. We here at MastySpot normally tend to take notice when amazing stuffs like these roll out, even though its off the topic! Really, innovations like these leaves me pondering on how one can come up with ideas that's completely out of the blue or if i may say out of this world!

Here's a glimpse of what the future has in store for us! The folks at Think Geek were lucky enough to test this future device in the form of Bluetooth Laser Virtual Keyboard. Yeah! you got it right, it is a bluetooth laser keyboard. Let me get to the point before I get emotional. So how does this device work? The tiny device, which is just about the size of a cigar lighter, when switched on projects a 63 key / full sized QWERTY keyboard layout on any flat surface and you can then type away accompanied by simulated key click sounds. You can surely witness jaws dropping the moment you pull this baby out of your pocket and use it with your PDAs, handhelds or cell phone.

The Bluetooth Laser Virtual Keyboard allows the convenience of regular keyboard typing in a tiny form factor and if that's not all, it is compatible with PalmOS 5, PocketPC 2003, Windows Smartphone, Symbian OS, and Windows 2000/XP. Measuring just about 3.5 inches high, it houses a long lasting battery that can deliver 120 minutes of continuous typing when fully recharged. Priced at $179.99, this surely is a must buy product.

CPR instructions on a glove

Science and technology are going really far with advancements now. Scientists are coming up with things we can't even think of. For example, recently, 2 students at McMaster University of Hamilton made an invention that is a glove with a digital screen on top of it. With this glove CPR would be made easier. People would then know how to give proper CPR.

Anna Nicole, an Americal model, who died last month, her body guard gave her CPR for quite some time but she couldn't be saved. This bodyguard was trained for medical purposes but he still failed to save her. CPR doesn't always work but there is a chance that it wasn't practiced properly over Anna Nicole. If the bodyguard had this "glove" may be he could have saved Anna.

But that was just an example I could think of. These cases occur every day that people have heart attacks and CPR is not properly done and patients die because of the heart attack. So, this invention will help in these situations.

Inventors of this invention say that the total cost to make this was $250 (all the parts that make up this "glove"). But they also say that it would be cheaper to produce them if parts of this "glove" are not bought separately. So, when they come out in the market, they wouldn't be too expensive.

This invention is quite useful since it guides the people how to perform CPR when its needed, and good thing about it is that it gives step-by-step information, as it required while performing CPR. This thing makes it easier for everybody to use it.
