R2-D2 virtual keyboard – your only hope

R2-D2 Virtual KeyboardIt might not be as swish as the AR keyboard spotted for the Samsung Galaxy Glass but how could you not fall in love with a virtual board being projected by the adorable Artoo?

The Rebel Alliance’s favourite, if sometimes bad tempered, Astromech droid – R2-D2 – is now available to assist you with tablet and smartphone typing thanks to his projection and Bluetooth skills.

Just as R2 is able to show holographic messages of Jedis in trouble, this little fella can connect to your smartphone or tablet via Bluetooth, and allows you to type on any flat surface, such as a desk or table.

The video below shows this fun R2-D2 virtual keyboard in action, it comes with various R2-D2 sound effects, and you can also use it with your computer or any device that supports Bluetooth 3.0.

It is only available in Japan through Runatown at the moment and costs 33,480 Yen – that translates to being the wrong side of £195!
