Vioguard Self-Sanitizing Keyboard

Posted in Keyboards by Conner Flynn on October 12th, 2009

Vioguard Self-Sanitizing KeyboardGerms. They’re everywhere. They make us sick. So we don’t blame you if you’re overly worried about the little buggers and find yourself washing your keyboard. What concerns us is that you do it ten times a day. Get a grip man.

Vioguard’s new UVKB50 self-sanitizing keyboard should help you feel better about the cleanliness of your keyboard. It sports a proximity detector which lets the freshly sanitized keys slide out for your use. It slides back in once you are done, to get sterilized with anti-bacterial ultraviolet light.

Asus Eee touchscreen keyboard PCThe wait is nearly over. Asus has finally committed to an October U.S and European arrival for the highly anticipated Asus Eee Keyboard. We had hoped it would be here in August. The keyboard has a 5-inch touchscreen and Ultra Wideband HDMI (with receiver) to connect to your TV. And we want one now.

Some of the Eee Keyboard’s specs include a 1.6GHz Atom processor, 1GB of DDR2 RAM, 16 or 32GB solid-state hard disk, 802.11n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and HDMI. We don’t have a price yet, but we’re hoping that Asus can keep it reasonable.

Microsoft’s new keyboard is thin, sexy

Posted in Keyboards by Conner Flynn on September 10th, 2009

Microsoft’s new keyboard is thin, sexyIt’s hard to make a keyboard sexy. I mean, it is what it is, and it has to be comfortable and not injure you terribly bad, while maintaining a size that’s also comfortable. So, we really have to give props to Microsoft on this one.

The new Bluetooth Mobile Keyboard is sexy, curvy and just plain looks pleasant. It even has a sexy little numpad that’s like a sidecar. The keyboard is thin enough to slip into a manila envelope. It’s as thick as a AAA battery at the back, thinner than that in front.

Keyscaper offers custom printed keyboards

Posted in Keyboards by Shane McGlaun on September 1st, 2009

keyscraperkb-sbWhen it comes to keyboards there are not that many color options. You can get black, gray, or that lovely beige color. All of them are rather plain and don’t let users express themselves much. A new line of keyboards from Keyscaper will change that.

The keyboards are custom printed with stock photography, Pac-10 college football mascots, and colors, or with Garfield. The technology used to print the keyboards doesn’t involve wraps or stickers.

Posted in Keyboards by Shane McGlaun on July 16th, 2009

daskeyboard-sbThe Das Keyboard has been around for a while. The first time we saw it the keyboard was all black and had no letters or other symbols on it. That meant that the average geek who needed to see the keys and symbols the Das Keyboard wasn’t an option.

Not too long after it debuted, a new version of the Das Keyboard with letters and symbols on it was introduced. The company who makes the Das Keyboard announced today that Mac and Linux specific keycaps were now available for the Das Keyboard.

Posted in Keyboards by Conner Flynn on July 15th, 2009

The Brand Keyboard, brought to you by...everyoneThese days everything has to be branded with a company logo. It’s not just for race cars anymore. Imagine if keyboards were that way. You wouldn’t know what to type. Ignacio Pilotto is trying to make a statement about how these corporate brands have been “branded” in our consciousness.

And so the keys on this keyboard feature logos from some of the biggest and most famous brands ever. Sure, it’s an out there idea, but do you think these companies would mind one bit if they got some space on your next keyboard?

Thanko Silent Keyboard EX

Posted in Keyboards by Conner Flynn on July 8th, 2009

Thanko Silent Keyboard EXThanko wants to help keep your environment silent with an update to their Silent Keyboard with an EX attached on the end instead of a shhhhh. They’ve cut 16.5 dB from the sound of the keyboard and to them that equals $52.79.

Seems a tad pricey for any keyboard, silent or not. But if quiet is your bag and all of that clickety-clack is getting on your nerves, why not give it a shot? It will take your money just as quietly as it operates.

OCZ Sabre OLED Gaming Keyboard

Posted in Keyboards by Conner Flynn on June 23rd, 2009

OCZ Sabre OLED Gaming KeyboardThe Sabre OLED gaming keyboard takes Art Lebedev’s OLED-in-each-key keyboard concept and adapts it for the mass market to enjoy. But it does have a lower price and a less impressive feature set. Only the numpad keys feature the OLED magic and the keys don’t display color.

OCZ tries to make up for the lack of OLED keys with a layered shortcut system and blue LED sidelighting. In the end we can only state the ovious, that the Sabre is no Optimus Maximus. Then again, the Optimus is huge and hard to type on. So maybe it’s for the best.
