    Didn't MS announce a similar capability some time back? I thought I read something about a projector-like feature that displayed a keyboard on any flat surface which could them be used like any other keyboard.

    This is Microsoft funded so it could be the same thing that you read in the past about.

    What do you mean developed soon? It is developed. There is nothing more to developed. I am lost with your post.

    Marketed soon.

    Don't really see this on a regular basis.
    I'm sure it will be improved upon, developed further.
