Adesso's new HTPC keyboard plays well with others

Check out the latest from Adesso, it’s a combination of a regular keyboard and a laptop touch-pad, making it almost ideal for home theater or limited space applications. Now we’ve seen this before, the idea is nothing new, but this particular product has one little feature we haven’t seen before.

It’s not a huge deal, but it could be an important one in some applications: you can use multiple keyboards in the same room. Normally, if you tried to use more then one wireless keyboard at a time, they interfere with each other and cause serious issues. These keyboards use a wireless ID system that prevents that issue. The keyboard runs off of two AAA batteries, and has a sleep mode designed to conserve power when you’re not using. Retail is a quite acceptable $120, and it’s available now.
