IFA Berlin 2015 won’t officially get underway until September 2, but product announcements are already breaking. LG is one of the companies getting ahead of the pack, announcing today its LG Rolly keyboard, which rolls up into a slender stick. It’s one of the smallest collapsible keyboards we’ve seen.The keyboard has a small stand that houses the single AAA battery and the hardware for the keyboard’s Bluetooth 3.0 support. It can connect to two devices, which is a nice touch, and you can toggle between them with one of the keyboard’s keys. The stand anchors the keyboard and can hold your phone... Read more...
It's time to throw in the towel, folks. Unless you're dining alone, proper etiquette dictates that you put away the smartphone when consuming a meal and actually converse with others around you -- Facebook isn't going anywhere, and the last thing your Snapchat recipients need is yet another lunch photo. Ah, but manners take a backseat to social media, and it's a losing battle to fight it. Knowing this, Kentucky Fried Chicken is embracing the modern era with the KFC Tray Typer, a super-thin Bluetooth keyboard that comes with your meal. Don't expect to receive one at your local KFC. The KFC Tray... Read more...
Ever in trend with thinner-is-better, Blogging Windows is reporting a May launch for the Microsoft Designer Bluetooth Desktop. Microsoft's Brandon LeBlanc speaks of the keyboard's sleek design, as well as the unexpectedly high quality typing experience born of the Designer's chiclet-style soft touch keys. LeBlanc specifically calls out the Designer's Function Keys, which offer one-touch access to Search and other Windows features, as well as the board's "Media Center" keys that literally put control of both music and video at the user's fingertips.

Don't beat yourself up if you're not familiar with the Cougar brand. It's a German company that's been in the game since 2007, though its presence in the United States is largely overshadowed by companies like Razer and Logitech, two of the bigger dogs in the gaming peripherals scene.

The product we're looking at here is Cougar's 600K Mechanical Gaming Keyboard. It's a subdued... Read more...

Have you ever tried hunting and pecking on a miniature keyboard that's been crammed onto a smartwatch's tiny display? Unless the tips of your fingers somehow resemble that of a stylus, you're in for a challenge. Interestingly enough, it's Microsoft that might have the most logical solution for typing on small size displays running Google's Android Wear platform. Microsoft's research division has built an analog keyboard prototype for Android Wear that eliminates the need to tap at tiny letters, and instead has you write them out. On the surface, such a solution seems like you'd be trading one tedious... Read more...

Do you think maybe that iPhone users are hungry for third-party keyboards? It would be hard to argue otherwise after seeing the SwiftKey Keyboard for iPhone surpass 1 million downloads in less than 24 hours. SwiftKey is now the number one app in the U.S. free app charts, and it was all made possible thanks to third-party keyboard support baked into iOS 8. The iPhone has always had a decent stock keyboard, though SwiftKey is popular for its ability to learn your writing style to more accurately predict your next word, and also because it allows users to type by sliding from letter to letter with...

The virtual keyboard on Apple's iPhone line works pretty well, though if you're old school, you might still prefer a physical plank. Ryan Seacrest tried to rectify the situation by funding Typo, a keyboard case for the iPhone, but the end result looked a little too much like BlackBerry's iconic design. BlackBerry ultimately won a court order barring Typo Products from selling its $99 Typo Keyboard Case, prompting Seacrest to make a few tweaks. Now up for pre-order is the Typo 2. Like the original Typo, the Typo 2 is a keyboard case for the iPhone that runs $99. Barring any litigious action, the... Read more...
When Marcel Fernandes Filho was 13 years old, he smashed his Dell computer in a fit of rage because the monitor wouldn't stop flickering. Suddenly without a PC, the young teenager from Brazil began using his iPhone 3GS more often. Such began his journey to becoming the world's fastest texter, as recognized by Guinness World Records. Part promotional stunt (okay, a huge promotional stunt), Filho broke the texting record using Fleksy, a third-party custom keyboard available for Android and iOS devices. He wore a Fleksy t-shirt as he pecked away on his phone, typing "The razor-toothed piranhas of... Read more...

As a species, we've come a long way from the days of carving notes into stone. While our ancestors used chisel and rock, we now use keyboards to hammer out our thoughts and anything that needs to be documented. Some of us spend hours a day sitting in front of a PC, a large portion of which is dedicated to punching keystrokes at a frenzied pace. There's a good chance that your keyboard is actively used more than any other peripheral or accessory, save for your monitor, yet some people give little thought to their plank, as if to suggest that all keyboards are essentially the same. Professional... Read more...
