Ah, but this one is available now and no amount of use is ever going to wear the key contacts or mar their surfaces. Next stage would be to build display and finger position sensors into contact lenses (or grafted into corneas) to implement a 3D virtual keyboard/tablet/monitor only the user could see. Using that and talking on a bluetooth connection would present a picture remarkably like that of the stereotypical wizard. Clarke's third law I guess - having it enacted between living generations on the same planet would really be something special.

Now all they need to do is add a green and a blue laser for full color key pictures - much more economical too.

Never mind, in a couple of years, they'll be $29.99 at your local PC peripherals clearance mart! :D
