The 'Punchkeyboard' is the design work of independent VR developer Jonathan Ravasz and offers users the ability to use virtual keyboards in order to input keystrokes in a virtual environment.

The 'Punchkeyboard' is intended to be used with virtual reality headsets such as the HTC Vive and Oculus Rift to offer a visual input interface that can be done using VR controllers.

One of the problems with existing VR experiences is that they often rely on users inputing information on a physical keyboard which can detract from the experience. The 'Punchkeyboard' comes as an exceptional example of how virtual keyboards can be implemented into the experience in order to offer an effective method for inputing info during a VR experience.
