Keyboard design lacks keys

Keyboards with no physical feedback are a singular offense against nature: it's one of those design canards that never goes away. Kong Fanwen's No-Key Keyboard is the latest, but it does have one bonus: beauty! How might these things be made to work?

    It’d be awful to use something like this all the time, but if it’s just for when your in the bath, I could see that working.
