    Logitech Releases Keyboards, Mice, And Speakers For iPads and Android Tablets

    Way back in the old days I bought a keyboard for my Palm V, thinking that I would be able to type into it and become a proto-ultraportable ninja. That never worked, and I worry that Logitech is bringing us more of the same with this dump of tablet accessories including a $70 keyboard, Bluetooth mouse (for Android tablets only), and wireless speakers. The keyboard and speakers work with both… Read More

  • WOW-keys Keyboard Uses The iPhone As A Touchpad

    WOW-keys Keyboard Uses The iPhone As A Touchpad

    This odd keyboard features a prominent iPhone dock on the right side in place of a numeric keypad. It has a set of special iPhone-specific hotkeys that allow you to enter data into the iPhone and control music playback and you can use the keyboard on a Mac or PC as well as use it to type directly onto your iPhone. Finally, this weird chimera lets you use the iPhone’s screen as a touchpad… Read More

    Control Your HTPC With This Monolithic Keyboard/Keypad/Joystick


    I’m not sure how many HTPCs are out there with the rise of streaming Netflix boxes and the like, but if you’re still attaching a slimline case to your TV then this may be the control device for you.

    Logitech K750 Is The World's First Solar Keyboard

Now you can charge our keyboards! The $80 Logitech K750 is the first solar keyboard built of fully recyclable plastic. The device has a set of solar panels along the top edge and even includes a luxmeter… Read More

    Chinese clone the iPad, add a keyboard


    Well know that’s an abonination. This Chinese crazy pad runs Windows and has a 10-inch screen running an Antom N450 processor. There’s no telling if this thing actually runs or not – the screen looks pretty janky – and there are no prices. Read More

    Short version: A competent, but unremarkable keyboard. If you like Microsoft keyboards, spend the extra cash for the fancier and cooler X6. Read More

    Logitech MK710 Wireless Desktop: Really nice and lasts a long time


    I’m a big fan of Logitech. I’ve used the MX mouse for nigh on most of a year and now I’m typing on a DiNovo Edge. That said, I think I’ll just pitch my old input devices and get me one of these. This is a large, full keyboard and mouse set with a mini-LCD display along the top and a cushioned palm rest. The batteries, if you can believe it, last 3 years per change. Read More

    Every so often, some company comes along and tries to get us to change how we type, or what kind of keyboard we use. The MiniGuru is the latest example of this phenomena. Read More

    Coming soon for Android: the crocodile keyboard app

    The crocodile keyboard is coming to an Android phone near you on December 7! Instead of refreshing MobileCrunch every five minutes, on Monday you can instead refresh android.com every five minutes until the app is released! That’s the Christmas spirit! Read More

    The Logitech Wireless Desktop treats your fingers to a new key design

    If the Logitech blog post about the new Logitech Wireless Desktop MK 700 is to be believed, the company has come up with a new type of key design. The Logitech Incurve keys apparently “cradle your fingers for greater comfort.” I’m all for keyboard innovation, but I think my standard white, full-size Apple keyboard also has concave keys.

  • DIY laser-controlled keyboard

    DIY laser-controlled keyboard

    This is a wacky little project. Basically you train a webcam to follow a spot on a piece of paper. Then you set “hotspots” on the image and assign commands to each hotspot. When you aim at the spot you basically “press” a button. Why would this be useful? You could potentially create a presentation system with this or help a handicapped person type with it. It’s… Read More

  • Thanko sells (almost) silent keyboard

    Thanko sells (almost) silent keyboard

    Tokyo-based crap gadget maker and USB specialist Thanko has a weakness for PC mice. In the last weeks, they gave you the “mid-air” mouse, a mouse with insects in it, a heated and a cooling mouse. The last one, a “silent” mouse that makes almost no sound when using it, seems to be a perfect fit for Thanko’s newest invention: a silent keyboard [JP]. Read More

  • Asus keyboard computer delayed until August

    Asus keyboard computer delayed until August

    Our own beardy Devin Coldewey had quite a tech boner for the Asus Eee Keyboard back at CES. At that time, a company representative made a “confidential estimate” that the device would be released in August. Then someone at Asus apparently got all giddy or something and it was announced that the Eee Keyboard would launch in June. Well, June’s almost over and there’s no… Read More

  • Crocodile keys hope to improve text entry accuracy

    Crocodile keys hope to improve text entry accuracy

    The more time I spend using computers, the more I realize that the ways in which we interact with them suck. Typing is a pain, and I’m very inefficient using a physical keyboard. When using an on-screen keyboard, I’m even less efficient. Until someone invents a really superb way to interact with computers, I guess the best I can hope for is the crocodile keyboard layout for… Read More

  • Review: Microsoft Sidewinder X6 gaming keyboard

    Review: Microsoft Sidewinder X6 gaming keyboard

    The rebirth of the Sidewinder brand is, I think a good thing for Microsoft. Their flashy, chunky game gear is functional and actually different — witness the X5 mouse, big enough for a Kodiak, and its upcoming big brother the X8, which looks even bigger. I was pumped to check out their new keyboard, and while it’s not exactly suited to my style of play, I can see it being very… Read More
