Logitech Unifying Receiver: One Receiver to Rule the Wireless USB Airwaves

 |  |  |  |  |  |  |  |  August 7, 2009

Logitech makes perfect use of wireless USB technology with their Unifying technology, which connects up to 6 compatible mice and keyboards (made by Logitech of course) to a computer using only a single, tiny receiver. It’s an awesome way to free up USB ports on your laptop, but obviously desktop users can also save space and eliminate clutter with this setup.


That’s the receiver right there, wearing pink skin and a gray shirt. Of course it’s the tiny thing in the man’s hand, the man being Logitech Senior Product Manager Wim Vanheertu. Watch as he explains his home computing habits, clumsily advertises Logitech devices and finally segues into the Unifying tech.

A video used to be embedded here but the service that it was hosted on has shut down.

Some of the Logitech devices that are compatible with Unifying tech include the Wireless Keyboard K350, the Wireless Keyboard K340, the Marathon Mouse M705 (EMEA) and the Wireless Mouse M505. I hope this technology becomes standardized and then built into all computers soon. Lord knows size won’t be an issue. More details on Logitech’s blog and website.
