Econo-keys mobile keyboard with track pad is odd

Posted in Keyboards by Shane McGlaun on June 10th, 2009

ecokeys-sbI can appreciate the fact that at times you really need an external keyboard. If all you are doing on your notebook while you are on the road is surfing the Web you may not need one. However, if you are working on the road an external keyboard can make a big difference in how quickly you can type long documents.

Econo-Keys has announced a new portable keyboard called the EK-76-TP that measures in at 8.91-inches x 3.54-inches x 0.38-inch and is compatible with Windows and Linux. The keyboard has 72 keys, 12 of which are function keys.

Numeric Keypad with a Spacebar

Posted in Keyboards by Conner Flynn on June 9th, 2009

Numeric Keypad with a SpacebarIf you have the type of job where you type numbers into your computer all day, you no doubt appreciate having a separate numeric keypad that you can position anywhere on your desk. Such keypads have a few extra keys on there besides the numbers, typically an enter key and a few calculating keys.

Here’s how this one will blow your mind. Are you sitting down? This one has a spacebar! I know right? At long last you can add spaces to long strings of numbers. If 8 and 9 are not getting along, you can separate them until they chill and learn to live together. Numbers will never be the same again.

Posted in Keyboards by Conner Flynn on June 9th, 2009

Wireless keyboard features multitouch Trackpad with Number PadThis wireless keyboard is from the future. It’s here to laugh at other keyboards that do not combine a multitouch trackpad with a ten-key number pad, which saves space and adds functionality. It’s available now for $69. Soon all keyboards will be like this.

The multitouch feature registers a series of two and three-finger presses for scrolling, zooming, window switching, tapping, and more. The entire keyboard is less than 3/4 of an inch thick and includes 18 hotkeys for launching various programs. The wireless USB adapter snaps into the bottom of the keyboard if you want to take it with you.

The Hunt ‘n Peck Keyboard for those who never learnedThere are those who have never learned how to type. These people use a method called hunt n peck. Understandably, these people have a hard time trying to hunt and peck on a normal keyboard. With this keyboard, just hit the ABC key and it will switch to alphabetical order, making it easier to find the key you need.

For others in the house, those who actually learned how to type, just push the button again and you have a normal QWERTY keyboard. This keyboard also has keys that have common IM abbreviations for you super lazy types.

Forget steampunk, check out the Art Deco keyboardI always wondered why more modders don’t go for the Art Deco look. I mean Steampunk is awesome when done right, but Art Deco is just as cool. It figures that it would be Datamancer who bridges the gap. They created this awesome Steampunk keyboard, and now are into art deco. It’s about time too.

Hit the link for more pics. Take it all in visually. Then you tell me if Art Deco is making a comeback. If you have a pulse, then you’ll know that the answer is yes.

IGM Heated Keyboard Wrist Pad

IGM Heated Keyboard Wrist PadDo you suffer from cold wrists? Apparently it’s a real problem. So says IGM’s Heated Keyboard Wrist Pad. The idea is to sooth your bones while you type away. It’s powered by a USB port. You won’t have to suffer from cold wrists anymore.

And even if your wrists are fine, it probably feels nice in a cold office. It might just help relieve some pain from arthritis or Carpal Tunnel syndrome. Carbon fiber heating elements produce heat in the Far Infrared range which supposedly has some health benefits.

OCZ Alchemy Illuminati keyboard

Posted in Keyboards by Conner Flynn on February 19th, 2009

OCZ Alchemy Illuminati keyboardIlluminati. You’ve heard the conspiracy, now try the keyboard. They really missed out on a catchy tag-line with that one. OCZ Technology might be better known for making memory, but they’ve just announced a new addition to the company’s Alchemy line of peripherals with the Illuminati multimedia backlit keyboard series.

It’s the keyboard that’s hell-bent on world domination, population control, ushering in the new world order and they’re probably working with Aliens and abducting people too. Cause you know, the illuminati are like that. Actually in this case the name just implies that the keys themselves light up when they’re connected to your computer.

The all-white Apple keyboard

Posted in Keyboards by Conner Flynn on January 28th, 2009

The all-white Apple keyboardIt may come as a shock to some Apple fanboys, but not everyone likes the look of the Apple keyboard. Some people may prefer something a bit more minimalist. Like plain white. That’s what Essell likes and so he decided to spray it white. Which, surprisingly looks pretty awesome.

If Apple keyboards went to heaven, this is what they would look like for sure. They would probably be floating like clouds and land under your fingertips when needed. I think I might have problems typing on this though. This guy is obviously a far better typer than I am.

Fast Finger Keyboard keeps letters in order

Posted in Keyboards by Conner Flynn on January 25th, 2009

Fast Finger Keyboard keeps letters in orderMost of us are happy with a nice QWERTY keyboard. Why not have a keyboard that has the ABC’s one letter after each other the way nature intended? The Fast Finger Keyboard is exactly that keyboard. There are three ways to use it. If you are just learning typing, the keys are layed out on the keyboard in alphabetical order. Just press the ‘ABC’ button and the keys will type in that order.

But if you are ready to take it to the next level, you can use it as a normal QWERTY keyboard. The letters are layed out on the keyboard under the ABC keys in red. The other thing this keyboard does is when the ‘F’ key is pushed, IM abbreviations are available with the function keys. “CYA”, “LOL”, and “BTW” etc.

Homemade Scrabble keyboard

Homemade Scrabble keyboardSomeone loves Scrabble a whole bunch and by creating this awesomely nerdy keyboard, they must have scored themselves a quadruple word score. It’s a wood and brushed aluminum keyboard that features real Scrabble tiles. The points score is slightly edited to show each key’s secondary function.

Everyone knows Scrabble and this is an awesome mod that looks like it could have come straight out of the game box. It’s a USB keyboard and the aluminum accents will very nicely match the Mac that it will be paired with.

Smartfish Pro prevents carpal tunnel by adjusting itself

Posted in Keyboards by Conner Flynn on January 14th, 2009

Smartfish Pro prevents carpal tunnel by adjusting itselfTyping on the computer all day can lead to some problems. And I’m not talking lack of sleep and a steady diet of Hot Pockets. I’m talking carpal tunnel syndrome. Between comments on Facebook, twitter, gaming and commenting here at the ‘Brick, we are all just one keystroke away from carpal tunnel at any given time. The Smartfish Pro is designed to help prevent it rather then causing it.

Yeah, we’ve heard it all before. There are all kinds of ergonomic gadgets on the market and most seem like they don’t do jack. There’s even an ergonomic mouse or five. The Smartfish Pro actually has a chance of helping the problem and standing out from the crowd. That’s because it is outfitted with motors that slightly shift the keyboards angle throughout the entire day. This may actually help with repetitive stress injuries.

Klingon Language Keyboard let’s you type with honor

Posted in Keyboards by Conner Flynn on January 13th, 2009

Klingon Language Keyboard let’s you type with honorYou own the dictionary. You speak the language. Sadly, you’ve even tried to pick up women using the Klingon tongue. Unsuccessfully of course. But until now, you have not been able to type with a Klingon keyboard. Well, Cherry Keyboards’ Klingon Language keyboard has your back. All it needs is a PS/2 port and a willing nerd. You’re good to go.

They were able to keep it looking like regular keyboards thanks to the fact that the Klingon alphabet has 26 characters, the same as the English language. Now you can pretend to be a Klingon ALL the time, not just at the conventions. Just don’t sit in front of it all day long typing Klingon love letters and death threats, or else your fake armor isn’t going to fit over your gut anymore.

Eee HTPC keyboard specs

Posted in Keyboards by Conner Flynn on January 11th, 2009

Eee keyboard: A touchscreen Home Theater PCLast week we had a look at Asus’ HTPC keyboard concept, but now we’ve got some specs to go along with it. The only thing we don’t know about are pricing and availability. The keyboard boasts a 5-inch built-in display, a 1.6 GHz Atom processor, 1 GB of RAM, 16/32 GB SSD, WiFi, flat Mac-like keys and Bluetooth.

Where ports are concerned, it’s got wireless HDMI, 2 USB 2.0, VGA, HDMI, and audio in/out. It’s OS of choice is Windows XP home, which is a bit odd for something that wants to be a home theater PC, though it’s not packing a TV tuner either. No info on price or release date, but according to the Asus CEO, it’ll be available in the next 3 to 6 months.
