Cideko Air Keyboard With Built-in Mouse, Remote Control: Want Want Want Want Want

 |  |  |  |  |  |  |  |  June 17, 2009


Computex was over a week ago, but let’s jump back in time one last time and let’s take a look at this yummy piece of tech: Cideko’s Air Keyboard. The only thing that’s kinda stupid about this device is its name, because it’s not just a wireless keyboard, it’s also a mouse and a remote control.

Like a lot of USB products today, the Air Keyboard is a plug and play device; no software needed. I’m usually unimpressed with dedicated media control buttons on keyboards, but since this one is wireless it’s easy to imagine setups where the controls will actually be used. Cideko claims that the Air Keyboard has an effective range of up to 50 m (164 ft). The company also says that the device can last about 50 hours on 2 AA batteries.

The two shoulder buttons serve as the left and right click mouse buttons. Makes sense right? Sadly the click wheel has no proper counterpart in the Air Keyboard; that little fella is so useful. But let’s look at the bright side: unlike the fugly Combimouse, with the Air Keyboard you can actually use the mouse and the keyboard at the same time!

The Air Keyboard is compatible with both Mac (10.2 onwards) & Windows (98 onwards) systems. Unfortunately we don’t have details on the Air Keyboard’s pricing and availability yet. I hope the mouse sensitivity isn’t crap because if it is and there’s no software to go along with it we’re screwed. And of course I hope it won’t be too expensive. Because I WANT YOU, Air Keyboard.
