  Smartdust - Lostpedia
Smartdust is a word that first appeared on the bigspaceship1 website on the 19th January 2006 after the airing of the episode The 23rd Psalm.
It is believed that smartdust is a reference to the fl smoke monster that Mr.
In theory, smartdust would hover by default, as the particles are small enough for their own magnetic field to move them against gravity.

 What is Smart Dust?
Smartdust is a term used to describe groups of very small robots which may be used for monitoring and detection.
Currently, the scale of smartdust is rather small, with single sensors the size of a deck of playing cards, but the hope is to eventually have robots as small as a speck of dust.
Development of smartdust continues at a breakneck speed, and it will no doubt soon be commonplace to have a vast army of thousands or millions of nearly invisible sensors monitoring our environment to ensure our safety and the efficiency of the machines around us.

 Smartdust - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The devices, or motes, are intended to be the size of a grain of sand, or even a dust particle.
The smartdust concept was introduced by Kristofer Pister (University of California) in 2001
A typical application scenario is scattering a hundred of these sensors around a building or around a hospital to monitor temperature or humidity, track patient movements, or inform of disasters, such as earthquakes.

SmartDust are tiny electronic particles which are connected together electronically using those nodes or motes.
I propose that the SmartDust be sprinkled onto the surface the you intend to use for the virtual keyboard to put the data into the device.
The SmartDust will also need to have a certain Ionic bonding electronic charges with the surface you are using and repel itself from any attempt to stick to your fingers.
