MagicBoard Touchscreen Virtual Keyboard Turns Into Any Input Device You Need
For a computer user who needs a significant number input devices to perform different tasks, it can be quite a challenge to place them all on a single desk. The MagicBoard keyboard is one gadget able to act as any input device the user desires be it a keyboard, a musical keyboard or even the controls of a media player, eliminating the need to purchase new input devices once and for all.
This futuristic keyboard design by Eliel Cabrera replaces the conventional keyboard with a virtual touchscreen able to display different modes of input, allowing a user to switch from typing to playing the piano for example, with a simple gesture and without having to plug-in an additional device like a midi keyboard.
For games, the MagicBoard can be programmed to display custom buttons and layouts while accepting various gestures, adding yet another level of interactivity.
MagicBoard looks to be a great concept, and if it enters the market it should prove itself as a worthy peripheral for graphics designers and video editors; for gesture-input will surely provide a huge boost in productivity and efficiency.
A creative and cool design which projects the future of the indispensable computer keyboard, which has certainly come a long way since its introduction in the 70’s.
