This would make an amazing Z accessory! It says that it's Windoze only, but hoping someone in Z land will have the savvy to get in working with Linux...

This tiny device laser-projects a keyboard on any flat surface... you can then type away accompanied by simulated key click sounds. It really is true future magic at its best. You'll be turning heads the moment you pull this baby from your pocket and use it to compose an e-mail on your bluetooth enabled PDA or Cell Phone. With 63 keys and and full size QWERTY layout the Laser Virtual Keyboard can approach typing speeds of a standard keyboard... in a size a little larger than a matchbook.

Well, I would assume it uses the standard bluetooth HID protocols which are used by "normal" bluetooth keyoards.
So if they work, this one should work, too.
Do they work?

I have seen some sites which state this device (or one extremely similar has integrated support for USB Serial PC connectivity.

http://www.palmzone.net/article.php?sid=211

I don’t know yet if this is true for the model on ThinkGeek. If it does have USB support and it is recognized like a normal USB keyboard then there’s a solution unless you just HAVE to use Bluetooth. (Though wouldn’t that take the CF slot or is there an SD solution for that?)

I assume by now someone has worked out at least standard Bluetooth protocols and applications for the Zaurus? Please correct me if I’m wrong.

There’s another solution and it costs a LOT less, though it does appear significantly less elegant and has a bigger footprint. Though it is a USB device so I would think it would work. Here’s the link:
http://www.virtualdevices.net/

I’m looking at both these devices and await a response to my questions to see if I’ll be trying one out.

Has anyone successfully had the Bluetooth version working?
