This cool looking keyboard first appeared as a concept last year, and the Japanese company Minebea was considering making it a reality. They’ve just announced that they will release it in Japan on May 13th.
To the best of my recollection, the Atari 400 had one of the worst keyboards in the history of computers. I was always convinced that Atari made the 400 suck so badly so people would buy an Atari 800 instead.
Looking for a nifty remote for your home theater? This remote from Korean tech firm Conspin just might fill the bill. The Smart Qwerty CRU 200TQ has a rather silly name, but the remote itself looks like a really nice bit of industrial design.
Here’s a fun project to do if you have a couple of unused keyboards lying around – a picture Rubik’s Cube with function and number keys on it instead of colors. Making one’s not as easy as Ctrl+X, Ctrl+V though.
While it might look cute, Celluon‘s Evomouse is actually pretty useful. The dog-like device uses an IR sensor to track your finger movements, turning any flat surface into a virtual trackpad, yearning to replace your mouse.
This strangely-named keyboard, the S.N.A.K., which stands for Social Network Access Keyboard, has got way too many Facebook logos for my taste, and ultimately it does look like a Dynex Multimedia Keyboard with some stickers on it, but hey, if you love Facebook and social networking, this might be right up your alley.
Sometimes my feet get really sore and tired, so the idea of padding around in soft slippers with those rubber nubs that massage your feet really appeals some days. And being a computer geek, what better way to keep those feet comfy but with a pair of squishy keyboard slippers.
Android smartphones have long benefited from the Swiftkey keyboard app. Now that same convenience will be coming to Honeycomb tablets, and it really looks promising. Unlike the iPad keyboard, which has more or less the same layout as an actual keyboard, the SwiftKey Tablet app splits the keyboard into two, so that you can use your thumbs to type.
It’s true that using a keyboard with your iPad works well, but in retrospect, doesn’t it just transform your tablet into a regular computer? Elecom doesn’t think so, and they’re about to release their keyboard and matching stand to fit your your iPad.
At a Nintendo meeting last week, company president Satoru Iwata unveiled a necessary accessory for a game that’s on the wrong platform. What am I talking about? The upcoming Pokémon typing tutor game for the Nintendo DS, called Battle & Get!
While I’ve always enjoyed a full keyboard, switching to a smaller one for my Mac hasn’t been a big issue. I can learn to live without a numeric keypad, although I’d rather not. If you’re like me, then you’ll probably be happy to hear that Cropmark’s numeric keypad is now available and perfectly matches your Apple gear.
While I’d never spend the time making a s’more shaped like a keyboard, it’s a fun thing to see when most of us spend so much time in front of our computers.
The maker must have been pretty dedicated to his task when he created this intricate keyboard s’more.
I am a big fan of my iPad, and a lot of the time I find the on-screen keyboard irritating. It seems laggy to me, perhaps I just type too fast, I don’t know. If I am typing a lot on the thing, I really want to use a keyboard to speed up data entry and ZAGG has a cool new case that surfaced a few weeks back.
