Msi Cideko Air Keyboard/Mouse: Chunky, Beefy, Multipurpose Goodness
February 25th, 2010
For those too lazy to read my first article, screw you. But let’s hug it out while I tell you what’s so nice about this device. As you can see it’s a wireless keyboard, but what you can’t see is that it has an accelerometer which lets users use the whole thing as a mouse as well. The left and right mouse buttons are located on its shoulder, so you don’t have to shift your grip in between typing and mousing.
The keyboard has a USB dongle, giving it a range of up to 50 m and making it compatible with major operating systems. Watch as this talking plaid shirt demos the keyboard and gives tips on proper usage:
Remember: chu conchol the keyborrh, genchly turrh yo wrish, do nah mooh yo arrhm dish weih.
The air keyboard will go on sale in Germany this March for €79 (approx. $106 USD)… but a quick search shows that a non-MSI rebranded version is already on sale at Amazon for only $90! Now if only I had a credit card.
