R2-D2 Virtual Keyboard

Posted in Star Wars by Tam Yue on May 19th, 2014

R2 D2 Virtual KeyboardYet another must have for the Star Wars collector. Virtual keyboards have been around in some form for years, but This R2-D2 virtual keyboard projector makes all others look pretty boring.

He will make you feel like you have your very own R2-D2 droid at home. He beeps when you power on/off, as you type and sounds just like the real thing. This little guy can control either your mobile device or your personal computer through a Bluetooth 3.0 connection.

The downside to this; the price. He will run you about $330 over at Run A Town. We think that is a bit of a stretch considering non-Star Wars projectors are about 1/2 of that.

Posted in Apple by Conner Flynn on July 24th, 2011

Did you get the Lion OS yet? Apple is now ready to update their keyboards with the release of Mac OS X Lion. An Italian Mac website recently got its hands on what looks like a new Apple keyboard. The keyboard is almost the same as the previous generation, but with buttons dedicated to Mac OS X Lion.

For instance, the F3 button now has an icon for Mission Control and the F4 button has the icon for Launchpad. That should make things easier for new Lion users .

Microsoft patent would let touchscreens make real keyboards

Posted in patents by Conner Flynn on November 28th, 2010

A new patent from Microsoft has been spotted and it could lead to touchscreens that could change shape to create keyboards and other tactile objects where none exist. It is called a technique for a “light-induced shape-memory polymer display screen”.

It can send ultraviolet light to a plastic layer above each pixel, changing its topography. Varying UV wavelengths would serve to make different parts hard or soft, creating bumps and ridges that could feel like a real surface with actual keys. This design could be used with projectors, though it might not be limited to projectors.

Retro typewriters turned into USB keyboards

Posted in Keyboards by Conner Flynn on June 13th, 2010

If you miss the days of typing away at a slow speed on old typewriters, you can now relive those days on your computer. These retro typewriters have been converted into USB keyboards. They come from Jack Zylkin of usbtypewriters.

He takes old typewriters and converts them into keyboards you can use with modern computers. Pretty damn cool right? A fully-modded USB typewriter will cost you about $400 to $500, or Jack can take your old typewriter and convert it for you for $200.

Funny Band: Keyboards, drums and guitar in one freakish controllerBy now you must have a zillion fake plastic instruments taking up room in your home, thanks to the endless Guitar Hero type games that have entered your life. You might want to check out the Korean-made Funny Band, which takes a guitar and shoves drums on the back and a keyboard on the front for some reason.

I have no idea how you’re supposed to use this thing, but I’m dubbing it The all-in-one, one-man-nerd-band plastic-ono experience. If you think this weird mash-up lives up to it’s name, you’ll get a kick out of reading the press release below where we learn that Funny Band “will be loved by dance game to lots of users who just fall in to rhythm game.” and that “there was no game like performing on on-line such as funny band.”

Kinesis ergonomic keyboards double as bookends
Kinesis has dropped a pair of new accessories that will make their Freestyle keyboards more ergonomic. You be the judge. The Freestyle V3 accessory clips beneath the base of the keyboard and gives you three different slope settings, while the Freestyle Ascent Multi-tent will let you set each half in ten degree increments all the way up to 90 degrees. It will lock them in at the desired distance apart from one another and could probably let you use your keyboard as bookends if you wanted. The V3 costs $25 and the Ascent comes in at a whopping $200. Great way to play with your keyboard and type sideways.

Viper made with recycled keyboards

Viper made with recycled keyboards
Not sure what to do with your old keyboards? Why not make an awesome, but completely harmless viper out of them. Harmless to everything but computer mice at any rate. Awesome. Totally awesome I say. The only thing better would be to use black keys and create an even larger King Cobra. Man, I would like to see one of those kids get bit. Is that wrong?

Silver Seal keyboard wards off germ nightmares

Posted in Keyboards by Nino Marchetti on February 12th, 2008

silver-seal.jpgYou work in an area, like a hospital, where contagious germs abound. Or, you are simply very germ phobic. Either way you probably wouldn’t mind getting your gloved hands on a computer keyboard which is dishwasher safe. Meet the Silver Seal from Seal Shield, announced first last year and now available.

The Silver Seal keyboard is, according to Seal Shield, fully submersible, dishwasher safe and manufactured from special plastic. This plastic is antimicrobial, using “all natural” pure silver ions embedded in it to ward off germs. Silver is described as a “natural antibacterial product” – hence why it has been incorporated into the plastic.

Glow in the dark data

Brando glow in the dark keyboardNow that fall has finally arrived and the days are growing shorter darkness falls earlier each day. If you want to bring a little light into your work environment and pick up your spirits on gloomy days consider investing $27 and pick up a Flexible Illuminated Full Sized Keyboard from Hong Kong-based Brando.

The silicon material that the keyboard is made from is flexible enough that you can roll it up or twist and turn it. Dimensions are 49×13 mm and it only weighs 335 grams so packing it around shouldn’t be too much of a burden. The illumination can be seen in a lighted environment but of course it looks better in a low light or dark room.

Das Keyboard - Blank Keyboard

Notice anything missing from this keyboard? All the keys are there, but no letters are on them. This is Das Keyboard II which is a 100% blank keyboard, with no letters or numbers at all on the keys. There are some special marks on the “home” keys (man does that bring back some repressed junior high memories), which help you find your place by touch, but other than that you are on your own.

Think you are good enough on the keyboard to master typing, programming or gaming without looking. Even if you do have the habit of looking, this blank keyboard isn’t going to help you out. Good luck.
