Logitech announces wireless Wii keyboard
I don’t know many people who surf the web using their Wii, but if that’s your idea of fun then Logitech has a brand spanking new keyboard to go along with your frustration. It broadcasts using 2.4 GHz wireless technology and will work from 30 feet away.

It’s not just a plain old wireless keyboard either. It was designed with the Wii in mind and so comes with dedicated buttons for things like Zoom In/Out, Forward/Back, Quit and OK. No word on a release date, but it will cost you $50 when it arrives. That’s a bit more expensive then the Logic 3, which is only available in the uk currently.

Logitech unveils premium Mac webcam

Logitech QuickCam Vision Pro for MacLogitech has a long history of making some of the best webcams available for computer users. What Logitech doesn’t have much of a history offering are Mac compatible webcams. In fact this week Logitech announced its first ever Mac compatible webcam that uses premium technologies.

The Logitech QuickCam Vision Pro for Mac has Carl Zeiss optics and is compatible with iChat and Skype on the Mac. The camera also uses a voice coil motor for its focusing system rather than a stepper motor. Thus provides faster focusing and allows the webcam to focus on objects as close as 10cm from the lens.

SpaceNavigator for NotebooksI’m sure some of the real on-the-go types that work with 3D graphics and such all the time will find this device very useful. I used to own one of the full size SpaceNavigator devices and I am obviously not the target demographic for the device because I just didn’t find a use for it.

However, with the recent announcement that the SpaceNavigator will be SecondLife compatible mobile SecondLife fans might find the thing useful. 3Dconnexion says that the SpaceNavigator for Notebooks is more compact than the normal desktop device and weighs about half as much.

Logitech Z Cinema Advanced Surround Sound System for your computerSo now that there are becoming more and more high quality movies, games and music available to download from the intertubes onto your computer, the next thing a person finds themselves needing (aside from getting that content over to their living room) is a higher quality display and sound system to take advantage of all this advanced media technology. This year at CES, Logitech is coming through with the sound portion of this equation by launching the Logitech Z Cinema surround sound system.

This new speaker system consists of just two satellite speakers (no rears) and a subwoofer along with what Logitech calls “SRS TruSurround HD” to put your desk chair in the middle of the surround sound action. The speakers have a 180W hybrid Class D + Class AB tri-amp, two-way satellite speakers and an 8″ subwoofer along with 24-bit audio via a USB connection. If for some reason you are unable to play your digital audio through the PC that the speakers are connected to, you can also just connect the player to an input jack to play directly through the speakers. Also, in the event that you don’t already have a media center remote control with your system, Logitech is throwing one is as well.

Logitech Harmony 890Imagine a world in which you control all your home entertainment and advanced lighting systems using only one remote. Such a world could be yours with the Logitech Harmony 890 Advanced Universal Remote. The Harmony 890 allows you to wirelessly control your home entertainment system without direct line-of-sight to the components.

The Harmony 890 uses both radio frequency (RF) and infrared (IR) wireless signals to control the parts of your home-entertainment system that may be hidden behind walls or cabinet doors. The 890 breaks the line-of-site barrier by sending RF commands to a wireless A/V bridge receiver. The receiver serves as a bridge by converting RF signals to IR commands, and then broadcasts infrared signals to the components allowing you to achieve true wireless bliss.
