Who Do You See in This Picture? The Answer Is Important to Your Vision

Text-O-Possum = Exactly What You Think

It is possible to be too geeky, or live on the borderline between geek chic, moderately geeky and "OMG, why would they do that?" geeky. I suspect Kasey McMahon, who created this Text-O-Possum, a Bluetooth enabled, laser projected keyboard built in to the back leg of an opossum, is part of that last group. "An amazing glimpse of this promised future has just arrived in the form of text-o-possum," says McMahon on her website. "A direction technology based on an optical recognition mechanism enables the user to tap on the key images projected from text-o-possum's back leg." Listen McMahon, taxidermy and geekiness don't mix. Even when you mix it with a laser keyboard.

Living possums are nasty enough. Dead ones tied to your keyboard are just wrong.

When it comes down to classic clunky keyboard vs. inanimate formerly living keyboard, clunky is always going to win with me.
