Logitech has unveiled a new keyboard that isn’t aimed at desktop users or gamers. This keyboard is called the Illuminated Living-Room Keyboard K830 and it is specifically designed to allow HTPC fans easy control over their computer when sitting on the couch.
Yesterday Valve released a video showing a prototype of the Steam Controller – which is designed to be used with the company’s upcoming Steam Machines – being used to play a handful of games. The demo focused on the controller’s “legacy mode”, in which the controller emulates a mouse and a keyboard, letting you map keys and cursor movement to the controller’s buttons, triggers and trackpads.
If you bought Orée’s wooden keyboard, it’s time for you to save up for its sidekick. This October Orée will release the Touch Slab, a Bluetooth multitouch trackpad that’s also made of a single piece of wood.
If you’ve got a Mac, but simply can’t stand the Apple wireless keyboard or Magic Trackpad for some reason, you’ve now got another option because Logitech has just unveiled a wireless keyboard and trackpad, made especially for Mac.
If you have a HTPC in your living room or spend a lot of time using a tablet or smartphone and wish you had a small keyboard, check this out. A company called FAVI Entertainment has released a palm-sized keyboard that supports just about any portable device on the market including Android tablets and just about anything else with Bluetooth connectivity.
The LCD multi-touch trackpad on Razer’s Blade gaming laptop was just about the only truly unique thing about it. Fortunately that cutting edge device is no longer exclusive to the laptop, because Razer has incorporated it into its latest gaming keyboard.
I have never been able to work well with a touchpad on a notebook computer. I prefer a mouse that I can move around with more accuracy and speed. I know more than a few folks that love the touchpad though, and if you are one of those touchpad lovers, Logitech’s latest is for you.
If you’re a Mac user and you yearn to use a numeric keypad, then look no further. Mobee’s Magic Numpad might look flimsy, but it will transform your Apple Magic Trackpad into a numeric keypad thanks to the accompanying software.
While it may look easy to type on a touch-screen, it’s really anything but that. Most likely, you’ll end up typing faster using a device with some kind of tactile response. That’s where the iTablet Thumb Keyboard comes in.
I’m not a fan of small keyboards, but in a pinch, they will do the job.
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.
I have long though that offering up a major OS like the Chrome OS from a major company like Google, and then finding it had issues with the operation of something as basic as the trackpad meant someone needed to be fired.
This tiny keyboard is perfect for times when you need to control your PC or mobile device (or blind someone) from across the room.
Not only does it offer a 72-key QWERTY keyboard, but a tiny touchpad, and a new bonus not usually found on keyboards – a laser pointer.
Remember that Apple trackpad we thought was coming a few weeks back? Well we were right with our intelligence on the hardware, just wrong on the date. The good news is that the hardware is real, and you can buy it right now.
The new Magic Trackpad works wirelessly with your desktop Mac via Bluetooth, adding multitouch gestures for interacting with objects on screen, scrolling through long web pages, flipping pages in electronic books, and more.
The trackpad is about the same height as the Mac aluminum keyboards, making it 80 percent larger than trackpads on MacBook Pros, and giving you plenty of real-estate for multiple fingers.
One of the things I hate most about working on a notebook or netbook is the trackpad. I really hate those things. They are just not nearly as accurate for me as a normal mouse. I would never consider using one for my desktop like the Apple Magic Trackpad rumored to be launching today.
Considering the fact that I type like a million hours each day, you might think I know how to type like a normal person. You would be wrong. I skipped typing class in high school because all the cheerleaders were taking cooking class.
Ten One Design’s app could be a godsend to artists who can’t afford a full-fledged tablet. It can be used with any pen-like object, but when combined with the company’s Pogo Sketch pen, Inklet adds touch-sensitivity to your unibody MacBook/MacBook Pro’s trackpad.
Inklet also has handwriting recognition and supports a variety of applications, including Pixelmator, Circus Ponies NoteBook, Photoshop CS3, CS4 and Elements, Corel Painter and even Word 2008.
