Another one of my day-dreams comes to life

A company named Fingerworks created what's probably the first ever keyboard without movable parts. It's called the TouchStream LP. What's amazing is that I've had this idea of a flat keyboard back when I was in second year high school. I never told anyone about it, but I've often day-dreamed about new technological ideas, some of which actually became reality.

The TouchStream, of course, is much more complex than my own idea. Fingerworks has developed a way of using TouchStream both as a keyboard and a mouse-pointer controller. It even features touch gestures that acts like keyboard shortcuts.

Now if only it was as slylish as my dream keyboard... :-)
