Eee keyboard: A touchscreen Home Theater PC

Posted in Keyboards by Conner Flynn on January 6th, 2009

Eee keyboard: A touchscreen Home Theater PCMeet the new best keyboard ever. The official Eee Keyboard. It features wireless HDMI, and it’s a “fully functional PC” with full QWERTY and an awesome mini secondary touchscreen.

Asus is mum about if and when we’ll actually see the Eee Keyboard come to market (It looks like a very real product), but if it’s a concept for a home theater PC, it is an amazing one. With wireless HDMI you could probably make any television into your monitor without having a huge PC taking up space.

Tiny backlit wireless keyboard

Posted in Keyboards by Conner Flynn on December 17th, 2008

Tiny backlit wireless keyboardYou might remember a few months ago when we told you about that small bluetooth keyboard that was great for iPhone typing. Well, this one outdoes it. And it’s great for the dark home theater. This new backlit model is barely larger than your hand, and runs on 2.4GHz wireless rather than Bluetooth.

It even has an extra USB port for a mouse if you don’t also have a wireless mouse. This looks like an awesome device for your dimly-lit movie sanctuary. However, using two AAA batteries, all that blue backlighting and wireless connectivity, may just drain all the juice out of the device quickly.

Gokukawa Leather Keyboard for fetish typesTyping on this soft Gokukawa leather keyboard will feel soft and smooth. Some of you may even want to break out your riding crops and ball-gags and be lovingly whipped into a bloody frenzy from behind while working. Hey whatever floats your boat. No skin off my back, though yours is a different story.

And since you love pain, the $548 asking price is like a kick to the crotch. Especially when you consider the fact that there are no labels on those smooth, leathery keys. Don’t worry, for $603, you can get letters etched into them.

KeyRight Look & Learn Keyboard

Posted in Keyboards by Conner Flynn on November 6th, 2008

KeyRight Look & Learn KeyboardThere’s always typing software to help improve your skills, but for some people, easy learning comes from a good keyboard. Like the Look & Learn Keyboard from KeyRight. It’s for beginners who want to get faster.

The keys have been color-coded so that you can differentiate between eight finger zones. You still need some software to help, so the Look & Learn keyboard ships with its own interactive learning software. It’s compatible with both Mac and Windows and will retail for $40. If this is not up your alley and seems too hard, try the Keyboard for blondes.

Keyboard for Blondes

Posted in Keyboards by Conner Flynn on November 5th, 2008

Pink keyboard for BlondesI’m sure it’s not easy being a blonde, what with all the jokes and everything. Now I’m not saying those jokes are well deserved, I’m just saying they made a special keyboard for ya. First off, it’s pink, so you’re probably intrigued already right? The designers have also made things easier for you with some special keys.

You’ll get a lot of use out of the MySpace spacebar, while Enter= Yes, I want it. Delete= “Oops” and T= TC4S, too cool for school. S= “SOS”, shoes on sale. Seems like they covered everything. I hope all of that technical talk didn’t confuse you. The numbers even look like dice rather than plain old digits. With this keyboard, every moment you type is a blonde moment.

Saitek Eclipse III backlit keyboardWorking in the dark is no fun. You can’t see your notebook’s keyboard for one thing. Plus, darkness is scary. That’s when the monsters come out. That’s why Saitek is offering the Eclipse III. They like low-light computing/gaming so their fancy keyboard can show off. The backlight has different colors that it can be set to. The USB-connected keyboard also features a 2-stage height adjustment system for your typing comfort, laser-etched keys, shortcut keys, as well as head phone and microphone audio ports. No word on pricing or availability yet.

Datamancer’s ergonomic Steampunk keyboardDatamancer has done it again and this one looks like it would be pretty comfortable to use. It’s got the usual brass, wood and classic typewriter keys, along with some other really super details. Like some violet LEDs, an acanthus-leaf pattern etched into the brass, and a soft burgundy wrist pad that is removable for cleaning. It began life as a very rare but plain IBM Model M-15 split ergonomic keyboard, but as you can see, it looks much better now.

Space Invaders bendable keyboard

Posted in Keyboards by Conner Flynn on September 3rd, 2008

Space Invaders bendable keyboardThere’s nothing like shooting some Space Invaders who are trying to take over the world. It used to be that we popped a few quarters in the machine and shot them all to hell. These days it’s all about buying merchandise that bears the likeness of the 8-bit invaders. Some of which is actually practical.

Take this awesome looking bendable keyboard for example. It manages to be completely flexible while displaying the invading army, which is great for those on the go. It’s sealed, dustproof and spill-proof. If you have an accident, just easily wipe off the keys. Looks like it comes in black/white and pink/white. It will only cost you $39.

Crayola EZ Type keyboard

Crayola EZ Type keyboardThe Crayola EZ Type keyboard sure isn’t easy on the eyes. It’s great to use when you want your kids germy and sticky hands well away from your own keyboard. Alternately, it would be great for old people for the same reason, plus the colored keys are big and easy to read. Or maybe you just like your accessories to look like crayons. Either way, you can get it from Crayola for $29.99. Also great for those in clown college. I’m surprised they didn’t put that crayon sharpener on it somewhere like on the crayon box.

KeyScan keyboard with built-in color scanner

KeyScan keyboard with built-in color scanner
Do as many people use scanners any more? I don’t. But if I did, a flatbed scanner would take up a lot of desk real estate. When you do need a scanner, chances are a sheet-fed version would do the trick.

That’s where this combo comes in handy. Hailed as “The World’s Only PC Keyboard With Built-In Color Scanner”, this usb keyboard incorporates a bi-directional 600dpi color scanner that’s capable of scanning a full page document in 14-15 seconds. 5 seconds in gray scale mode. It’s a tad expensive at $159, but you save some space in your work area and are really paying for convenience.

Luxeed LED keyboard hits the U.S.
The Luxeed multi-color LED keyboard is pretty awesome looking, but it’s been impossible to get outside Korea until now. Thanks to the folks over at ThinkGeek, you can bring one home. The keyboard is powered by 430 individual colored LEDs, which can all be sequenced using the included Windows software.

You can make any of your own colorful keyboard creations and it’s available in a black or white for $199.99 each. If you want a numeric keypad, it will cost an additional $34.99 to get one with no LEDs. It’s not the Optimus Maximus, but should make typing fun again. Check out a video below.

Thanko Cooler USB Keyboard

Thanko Cooler USB Keyboard
The way I see it, if sweaty palms are a problem for you, you can either keep a rosin bag next to your keyboard like Baseball pitchers use or you can get yourself a keyboard with air vents. Thanko has just such a keyboard, so stop being nervous and sweating through your hands already.

The Thanko Cooler USB keyboard works just like those bowling lane machines, with air vents to keep your hands dry. The built-in fan has a switch so you can turn it off whenever you don’t need it. Not sure how loud it is, but it will cost you $62.
