    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 also really cool. The whole… 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 Asus Eee Keyboard. 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 on-screen text entry. 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 useful for a… Read More

  • This tiny wireless keyboard – it glows?

    This tiny wireless keyboard – it glows?

    Another day, another kind of sweet product from Brando. This time is a wireless, backlit, keyboard. And it’s tiny. Actually, this might be the ideal item for a HTPC solution. Find out at the end of December when it ships out for the low low price of $47.00. Get it for someone else. Then, if they don’t like it, you’ll know it would have been a poor investment for yourself.

  • Hey guys, it's a $550 leather keyboard

    Hey guys, it's a $550 leather keyboard

    Even when I was reviewing the cream of the crop in the high-end keyboard review week, I never saw anything like this. The Gokukawa is, if I am not mistaken, a leathern keyboard. I’m not usually at a loss for words, but this is… yeah. It’s by the same people who make these lovely keyboards, which explains the price. I feel like suede would be nicer on the fingers, but maybe… Read More

  • Review: Logitech Illuminated Keyboard

    Review: Logitech Illuminated Keyboard

    Quick Version: The Logitech Illuminated Keyboard sports a sleek design combined with a number of functional enhancements that make it a cut above most others. While the illuminated keys are the main feature, the first thing you’ll notice upon removing it from the box is how extremely slim the keyboard is. It’s a good 75% slimmer than your traditional keyboard, and has a modern shape… Read More

    Japanese company sells outlandish keyboard that's split in half

    Tokyo-based Personal Media is selling a QWERTY-keyboard of a special kind. The μTRON comes in two pieces and features a space bar that is reduced to a mini rectangle located at the left of the keyboard. Tab, Del, Enter and other keys have been placed in the middle of the device. The μTRON keyboard is Japan-only but this time that might not be so bad as Personal Media is selling it for a whopping… Read More
