A Keyboard with a LOL button

Posted in Keyboards by Conner Flynn on February 16th, 2010

The Fast Finger keyboard is aimed mostly at children, or anyone not comfortable with the QWERTY layout. It’s also for you if you want a shortcut to type things like TTYL, L8R or BRB. It was shown off at Toy Fair 2010 in New York City.

The keys are in alphabetical order, but can also work in the standard QWERTY order instead. The function keys at the top make it easier to type all of those things which are already abbreviated. I guess it’s great for social network website addicts.

Keyboard with video editing controls

Posted in Keyboards by Conner Flynn on February 14th, 2010

If you are editing videos, you’ll want something that helps you do it quickly and accurately. A real jog/shuttle wheel helps. Especially when it’s built into your keyboard. Of course whatever video editing software you are using has on screen interfaces that do the same things, but you still have to use a mouse and cursor to control them.

The GR100 keyboard adds just such a shuttle wheel so that you can turn to move quickly through a clip, and has an inner dial to locate the exact frame you are searching for. Some buttons around the dial allow shortcuts to other editing functions.
