Phantom "game system" finally appears. Not really…

phantomBack in 2002, Infinium Labs, now known as Phantom Entertainment, announced a new gaming console system that would be a direct download content delivery system for PC games. (Hmmm. Steam anyone?)

However, the game console fulfilled its product name by not showing up for years, due to problems with development and the very shady business practice of generating hype for investors on the no-show item and cashing in on the stock while it was high. The practice is known as "pump and dump."

Now, five years and $62.7 million dollars later, they have presented the Phantom keyboard and mouse?

Talk about over-promising and under-delivering. Not only does it not play games, it looks rather, well, dated–as if it was made in the year 2002. But if you must have a conversation piece for your PC, you can pick up the Phantom Lapboard for a cool $129.99.

They describe their product as: "…a combination wireless keyboard, laser mouse and hard surface that makes it easy for you to work or play games from your couch, easy chair or any comfortable setting in your home or workplace."
