NEC turns arm into virtual keyboard with wearable tech

NEC has developed virtual keyboard software using an eyeglass computer and smartwatch.

TOKYO --NEC has developed virtual keyboard software for use with an eyeglass computer and smartwatch, foreseeing use of the augmented reality technology in factories and hospitals.

     The software works with other companies' mobile and wearable devices, allowing users to input data without connecting a bulky physical keyboard. The program runs by coordinating eyeglasses that have display cameras attached -- such as those made by Seiko Epson and others -- with smart watches like the Apple Watch, made by U.S. computer giant Apple.
