Phantom Lapboard Demo
While many have been keen to write off Phantom Entertainment (formerly Infinium Labs) as champions of vaporware, having yet to release any products after years of operation, the company may be ready to turn a corner. Having previously announced the Lapboard controller from its still unreleased game console as a stand-alone product, Phantom today announced that it would demonstrate the Lapboard at the European Games Convention in Leipzig, which begins August 24th. For those who are unfamiliar, the Lapboard is a wireless mouse and keyboard set with a twist: the keyboard has a mousing surface underneath, giving users room for a full-size mouse on their lap instead of the trackpads that are more common for these living room devices. Phantom hopes to launch the final Lapboard in November.
