A student implements a virtual keyboard for iPhone

Attention to these initiatives. One of the things I like about the Apple user community is the ability to develop new ideas beyond those implemented by the company. If you take a look at the Cydia store from time to time, find great tweaks to your device that you can enjoy for a few dollars or even free.

Today we bring you a project that's doing a student at the University of London, Florian Kraeutli. Armed with an iPhone 4 and jailbreak, has devised a system for implementing the desired virtual keyboard for iOS conceptual artists who have spent years dreaming.

Indeed, we mean that we can place the terminal on a flat surface, and to write on the surface itself, to a much larger size that gives us the iPhone screen.

The idea is brilliant: use the accelerometer to maximum sensitivity to detect at what point is hitting the table. In the video below you can better understand how this method:

Of course, much remains to be polished to be fully functional. The training system requires that the system prior to understand each letter. Currently, it has achieved up to 80% success rate, and it seems that is the maximum you can get for a sensor that is not designed for it.

What do you think this kind of ideas? It is likely that a device with several accelerometers arranged in several areas of the iPhone, easier to implement this technique. In any case, continue watching to see if the student achieves the project move forward.
