Every review I've seen of this keyboard has said that it isn't very good. While it certainly is a cool concept, I don't think true keyboard usability is quite there yet. Most of the reviews cite the following problems: doesn't work well in high light situations, no tactile feedback, and it requires a flat surface.

Too bad...it looked as slick a device as I've seen yet...that would be a great UX add-in...if it worked.

I bought it and retuned it, not as good as it sounds. You have to be in a very dim lit room in order to see this thing project on the table. Nothing like hitting the old fashioned keys on the board.

Other than being in a lit room, how was it having no tactile feedback... ?
