Nokia virtual keyboard patent uses cellphone’s camera

Spotted on Phonemag, “a new Nokia patent look like yet another virtual keyboard, but it uses the camera already found in the cellphone to recognise where the user’s fingers are stabbing on the table behind the handset itself.

Aside from using the camera, the phone design also has sensors which recognise the sounds and vibrations of the user’s fingers impacting the table and converts them into inputs.”
