The gang over at Yanko Design has a new glass keyboard that takes some design queues from touch screen devices like the iPhone. The all glass keyboard has no real keys and is see-through.

The entire keyboard is a sheet of glass with key shaped areas on it with letter labels, lighting and a camera. The concept would use motion capture software to change the motion of typing into real typing.

I have to say the concept looks really cool, but come on, what computer user would want to type all day on a keyboard that offers no tactile feedback. The concept is a full size QWERTY keyboard.
