  2. The R2-D2 Projection Keyboard Is Definitely the Droid You’re Looking For

    Press any key to help me. You're my only hope.

    Projected keyboards may be science fact, but they're a lot more fun when mixed with a bit of science fiction. The R2-D2 laser keyboard combines the two perfectly and just might fill you with enough delusions of grandeur to forget how much you hate keyboards that don't have tactile feedback.
