    THE HISTORY AND IMPROVEMENTS FOR LASER PROJECTION TECHNOLOGY

    Serafim_VK_virtual_red_laser_projection_keyboard.jpg

    ARTICLE HIGHLIGHTS

    • Laser projection technology is invented in Taiwan by Serafim  
    • Projection keyboards firstly achieved mass production in the world
    • Greatly improved projection technology is adopted to newly made products

    Taiwanese invented the laser projection technology on their own rather than Israelian. Although our customers think the laser projection technology was invented by Israelian, we will still patiently explain that this technology is actually invented in Taiwan.

     

    See how this technology applied to work and daily life:

    More technical information? Check the specifications of VK200 here.


    About a decade ago, Israelian integrates a camera, and infrared (IR) to build the laser projection technology. They made the world's first laser projection keyboard with this technology. Nevertheless, this keyboard is a prototype, which means that it's still in early development. Mass production is not in the plan. Recently, thanks to the growing of smart phone and Tablet PC, the demand of laser projection keyboard has rocketing up. Korean had considered this laser device would be popular, so they decided to put it on shelves; however, there are some disadvantages as follows:

    1. High latency on typing (Types a word, but it doesn't appear on screen immediately)
    2. Misinterpretation on typing is troublesome. (e.g. typed "A", but it shows other word instead)
    3. Battery drains too fast while using
    4. The size of layout is smaller than a regular keyboard
    5. The size is unfit for a phone dock

    We have continuously keeping conducting researches on solution for the above issues since Serafim Technologies Inc. was established. We are Serafim Technologies Inc. team in Taiwan. Contribute towards developing brand new technology. For resolving those drawbacks we have talked about previously, our tasks are combining these key technologies below:

    1. IR Detection Technology (meaning: an IR Sensor which is used as Obstacle detector is to transmit an IR signal.)
    2. IR Projection Technology (a technology to project diffractive (=the bending of light waves around obstacles in their path) optical element.)
    3. CMOS Image Sensor (Basically, this sensor can track fingers position and movement. In technical description, it is capable of making a real-time determination of the location from where the light was reflected.)
    4. HW & SW Integration (Arranges how communication is done between hardware & software)

    Despite a regular camera spends so much time on detecting fingers movement, this detection technology has still protected by existing patent already. Therefore, we altered our research plan. We set our algorithm (a method to solve math problem) to a Diode Array Detector to compute the position of objects with coordinate axis system (a 2D space). The advantages of adopting this technology are as follows:

    1. 2 times faster on keystroke detection than a regular camera
    2. Saves up to 50% of energy consumption
    3. Serafim Inc. truly owns the patent of technology.

    Honestly, that is not an easy job to develop a key technology in Taiwan, which is due to limited resources we only have. It is necessary to being a work-horse to push things to be done. Never say never! New technologies and products, which are innovated in Taiwan, can be glory and stand out in the whole world, definitely!

    ACTUAL IMPLEMENTATION OF IR DETECTION TECHNOLOGY

    elevator_buttons2.jpg

    How the IR detection technology applies to our lives?

    For example, we can go to another floor via elevator even without touching numbers! This can keep our hands clean and avoid the risk of infection. By taking advantage of IR detection module, which developed by Srafim Tech, we can go to any floor we want without touches on buttons.

    elevator_buttons.jpg

    How it works?

    1. Install an IR detection module at the number buttons in the elevator.
    2. Set the module to detect the movements that appear in front of it at a distance of 5-10 sq. cm.
    3. Compute and shows the desired floor on a screen,and finally get there.

    Do you like the concept we have written? Let's discuss it!

  • This Magic Box Turns Any Surface Into A Virtual Keyboard Or Piano

    iKeybo is a virtual projection keyboard and piano that activates on any flat surface, and could be used on any device with Bluetooth connectivity or USB.

    Author: Desiree Higareda (Nov 29, 2016)
    Article originated from SnapMunk

    It’s no secret that cell phones are used for way more than just talking, texting and browsing the Internet. Many people use smartphones for almost almost everything they wish to accomplish with their desktop or laptop. That being the case, having a sizable keyboard can come in pretty handy–but not if you have to actually carry around a keyboard. The next best (or even better maybe) thing? A virtual keyboard that is also a virtual piano, all within one tiny box that shines some red light.

    Serafim’s iKeybo is a virtual projection keyboard and piano that activates on any flat surface, and can be used on any device with Bluetooth connectivity or USB. Once you press the ON button, the laser keyboard automatically appears. The device was also designed to serve as a cell phone holder, which transforms your smartphone into something of a computer monitor.

    The keyboard also has multilingual capabilities and can be used in four different languages (Arabic, Chinese, Spanish, English). iKeybo was designed with circular keys rather than the squared keys you usually see on most keyboards; the hope here is to make table typing (or whatever surface you choose) faster and more accurate.

    iKeybo can also be used as a portable charger to plug in your smart gadgets. On a full-charge, the battery can support ten hours of continuous use, and the device also comes equipped with energy-saving modes to help sustain to extent usage.

    Was there something else? Oh right. The piano. To activate the laser piano, users need to download iKeybo’s music app – once you tap the app, the virtual studio functions will appear. It starts as a regular keyboard (which you can double and triple up for additional octaves) but using the configuration options in the app, you also have access to over four other instruments (e.g., drum machine).

    Companies such as Celluon have created products similar to iKeybo, but with slightly different features. Celluon’s Epic device also offers a laser keyboard and is smaller than iKeybo, but does not work as a cell phone holder so user still need to find ways to balance and view their device while operating the keyboard. Also, the device does not include a virtual piano.

    Another alternate product is Tap Strap, a plastic wearable that is placed on your fingers (sort of like brass knuckles) and by tapping your fingers on any surface–even your head or bike handles–you are able to type out messages. The tough part though, is that there is no virtual keyboard to look at, and technically only five fingers to use, so the user needs to learn how to type specifically with Tap Strap in order to access all the available keys of a standard keyboard. That might seem like too much work for a lot of people.

    And again, it doesn’t let you play Moonlight Sonata at Starbucks.

    iKeybo only weighs 2.5 oz. and its dimensions are a modest 2.09 x 3.11 x 1.67. Its Kickstarter campaign has almost two months remaining and has just cracked the $40K mark from over 400 backers (the goal is $50K, so they’re on pace). Pricing for the device starts at $89 and units are planned to ship in May 2017.
