Mozilla Seabird: A Smartphone With a Full-size Keyboard

Is a Pico Projector full-size keyboard for smartphones in the future? Mozilla Labs thinks it's possible.

Mozilla has no plans to build a smartphone, but with the help of product deisgner Billy May, Mozilla Labs have released a video showing a smartphone with a full-size keyboard.

The problem is that while it's technically possible to create documents and even write code on a smartphone, it's not practical. The keyboard is too small and therefore it's time-consuming and tedious to do a lot of typing with it.

To solve this problem, what Mozilla Labs has done with their Seabird smartphone concept, is that they theorize that by using Pico Projector technology, a full-sized keyboard can be possible. You can watch the video demonstration here.

Now the question is whether any of the smartphone manufacturers will actually build one.
