A New Input Method of Computers with One CCD Camera: Virtual Keyboard

  title={A New Input Method of Computers with One CCD Camera: Virtual Keyboard},
  author={Nozomu Matsui and Yoshikazu Yamamoto},
We propose a keyboard-style input method of computers with one compact CCD camera. The proposed method is called Virtual Keyboard. Virtual Keyboard economizes the input devices’ space of computers. In addition, it provides customisability for users. We discuss the motivation of researching the Virtual Keyboard, its flexibility and applicability. We describe our current research status of the Virtual Keyboard, and envisage its future.
