The No-Key Keyboard

Keyboards with actual keys are so last decade. All the hip gadgets have already eliminated physical keys (iPhone, Surface...), and even upcoming notebooks seem to be over the keys.

Designer Kong Fanwen brings the same keyless concept into external keyboards with the “No-key Keyboard”, a flat full size QWERTY keyboard that features a glass surface, camera and embedded lighting (can we say, action!) The keyboard design utilizes motion capture technology to follow your finger movements and translate them into input.

I guess we have to come up with a new name for the keyboard if it doesn't have keys anymore.
