    Review: Microsoft Sidewinder X4 keyboard


    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

    MiniGuru keyboard tries to get you to change how you type

    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

    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

    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
