Virtual Keyboard from Nokia
Nowadays mobile companies are filing patents one after another. Nokia has once again filed a patent for Virtual keyboard. This patent is regarding an upcoming Nokia device, which will have a virtual keyboard. Nokia’s phone will have digital camera located in front side of the phone, which will capture movement and position of the user’s fingers and project them on a virtual keyboard. This keyboard will be shown on the phone’s display. I think Nokia has been inspired by the gesture control function of the upcoming Windows Mobile 7. Anyways, this patent is really interesting and if Nokia wants to capture motion is real time it has to embed some really high-end motion capture camera in the front of this phone, which will obviously increase the price of this Mobile phone with Virtual Keyboard. By the way people are saying that this phone will not be touch screen so if the camera is not working then you have to use the physical keyboard, pretty sad!!!
