Although we know that a cheapo £10 keyboard does the job just as well, we’re big fans of high tech keyboards – and the more pointless lights and gizmos bolted on, the better.
We’ve hammered away so hard at our Logitech diNovo Edge Bluetooth keyboard that several of the letters have now rubbed off completely, making our typing even more unpredictable than usual.
With our diNovo keyboard (literally) fading fast, we’re beginning to eye the Wireless Litetouch Keyboard with lustful eyes.
The keyboard comes in wired and unwired flavours – USB wired and a 2.4GHz RF wireless version with a rechargeable lithium ion battery – and packs an integrated 360° trackball with left and right mouse buttons.
To the right of the backlit ‘scissor keys’ is a litetouch LCD 3-in-1 touch panel, which switches between media mode, numerical-pad mode and a customised mode, which can be personalised with links to favourite websites, applications, games, etc.
- litetouch™ LCD touch-sensitive Media Panel.
- Trueview™ backlit keys.
- Low profile quiettouch™ scissor keys
- 2.4GHz wireless; Up to 30ft / 10m range
- Intelligent power control, extending battery life
- Slim profile: A full sized keyboard for a compact space
The Windows/Mac compatible keyboard is set to cost around £130 for the wireless and £80 for the wired version, with both available from Game Shark in the UK ‘soon.’
It’s pretty hard to justify shelling out £130 for a keyboard, but let’s be honest – this thing’s going to look ruddy great when it’s glowing in the dark and that touch panel looks well Star Trek. Engage!
