This was a gift for my father, who works in the field and can't always have a real keyboard onhand. Its small size allows for him to carry it to most jobsites in a pocket and use to fill out documents related to his work. Android compatible is a plus, as our devices have become central to our lives in productivity and personal use.
Super cool and it works. As some others have pointed out, it probably isn't best suited for heavy duty business use, but it has no problem keeping up with an average typing speed. We couldn't get it to work on your pant legs like some pictures we saw, but on a flat surface it's awesome. Great gift!
What a fun gift! Yes, it’s an novelty item. If you’re looking to type long term papers with it, it’s possible, but not practical. As for our family we enjoy it. Our son actually types his assignments just for the joy of using this keyboard. It’s not effective in bright light, but we expected as much. We don’t have any mistyping or key errors. It performs as advertised. Anything to keep the kids typing their own assignments is a winner in our book.
We purchased this as a gift for a family member that is very into electronics and it was a huge hit. The key board was easy to start using right out of the box. The projected keyboard was bright and easy to use. We tested the light on multiple surfaces, i.e. kitchen table, wooden desk, marble countertop and the key board picked up on all the letters without missing a beat. The keys make a gentle click when you are pressing them so you can tell they are registering. The device itself was a lot smaller than I had expected and could easily be carried in your pocket. This was such a great gift that two other people in my family purchased that night.
This thing is just super cool. If you prefer a keyboard but don't want to carry an entire one with you this will do the job. I appreciate the "mouse" tool with android only wish there were something similar with Apple. Also appreciate the rechargeable battery. For the tech nut in your life, this is a cool gadget.
