Star Wars "R2-Q5" Virtual Keyboard

Electronics brand imp. (formally amadana imp.) releases a new spinoff from its original R2-D2 Virtual Keyboard with the limited edition R2-Q5 Virtual Keyboard. For some, the difference is minor — a mere change in the model. For the avid fan of the Star Wars franchise, it’s a new collection piece that features R2-Q5, an astromech droid that first appeared on Episode VI: Return of the Jedi. The device itself functions as a working QWERTY keyboard with a touchpad that’s projected onto any flat surface, while also emitting the original voice of R2-Q5 when in use. Other specifications include Bluetooth HID compatibility with both iOS and Android mobile devices, as well as Windows 7/8 and Mac OS X. Said avid fans will also be pleased to know that the release of the R2-Q5 Virtual Keyboard comes just in time for the unofficial holiday known as “Star Wars Day,” on May 4 — a date wittingly chosen from the classic phrase “may the Force be with you.” The limited edition Star Wars “R2-Q5″ Virtual Keyboard will sell for ¥39,000 JPY (approximately $325 USD) atAmazon Japan, and be sure to check out more details from the video below.
