Keychain Virtual Keyboard
Is that a keyboard in your pocket or....?
From The Awesomer: "A pocket-size version of the popular virtual laser keyboard, this compact new model pairs with smartphones, tablets, and any other Bluetooth-enabled device to provide a tabletop typewriter."
This strikes me as the sort of thing that, if you were isolated and without any other keyboard access, you could master and learn to love.
Absent those circumstances, not gonna happen.
I've spoken with one person who tried the original laser virtual keyboard: He pronounced it "useless" as a result of the lack of haptic feedback.
No worse in that respect than the iPad, though — and at least you get a full-size "keyboard" to pound on.

I've used a similar model at trade shows. It's great for when you need to do a lot of typing in the dark (like in conference rooms or classrooms), when the lights are dimmed. And it's ideal for people like me who can't manipulate on-screen typing and have to use full-size keyboards. I have trouble even typing on a netbook-sized keyboard, so using a smart phone keyboard is out for me.
However, the one you found is a much lower price than the one I often recommend to clients: http://www.thinkgeek.com/product/e722/
