Hot Virtual Keyboard adds multi-touch hotness



MultiTouchVirtualKeyboardAre your fingertips cold? If so, you may want to press them against Hot Virtual Keyboard, which now supports multi-touch input in Windows 7. Though they make no claims of warming properties, everyone loves feeling the warm glow of an LCD on a cold winter day. What, no? Just me? Fine.

Regardless, thanks to multi-touch, the keyboard of hot virtualness is now capable of operating more like a physical keyboard, allowing such things as holding shift and pressing another key to jump across a page or capitalizing a letter. It’s still programmable for macros and shortcuts. And unlike most physical keyboards, the keys and boards are easily re-arranged. They even include a single corner configuration for thumb boarding. Price is $29.95.

    Good news. It works on my UMPC. But it’s not multi-touch ;)

    I’ve always liked this software. I think it is one of the better Virtual Keyboards.

    I hope they add in some predictive text functionality like the iPhone too. I’m aware that this version does have predictive text, but like the ms version, it requires your input, whereas the iPhone VK only requires correction… much easier…

    FYI: The TIP included in Windows 7 does support multi-touch,

    Yes Philip is correct, and it is actually pretty cool to type on the capacitive touch Fujitsu T4310 with the keybaord stretched out across the screen. You can actually get a bit of speed up…
