Why wield multiple keyboards for different devices when you can have one that works with them all? That's the idea behind Logitech's K780 Multi-Device Wireless Keyboard (just K780 from here on out), a fully-equipped PC plank with a 10-key pad that also works on mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets, all connected at the same time. Simultaneous connections on a keyboard can be a bit tricky. To prevent what you're typing on your PC from appearing on your iPad and Galaxy S7 handset (or whatever tablet and phone you're rocking), there are three Easy-Switch buttons that let you toggle between...

Does the name Daniel Guermeur mean anything to you? It should. He's the founder and CEO of Das Keyboard, previously known as Metadot, and he's part of the reason why the peripheral market is now flush with mechanical keyboards. It started in 2005 when, on a mission to become a faster and more accurate typist, he created a completely blank keyboard. His idea worked, and it gave rise to the Das Keyboard, the first mass produced keyboard for the "uber geek." A year later, Metadot came out with its second model, the Das Keyboard II (DK2), with mechanical key switches. It's hard to believe now, but... Read more...
Are you a mechanical keyboard purist that demands the lightning-fast, unmistakable response of true switch actuation? Do your digits sometimes feel the fatigue of battle after protracted gaming beat-downs? Or do you prefer the cushy, forgiving feel of a membrane key switch but wish they had just a be more tactile feedback and key travel to help keep your bearings and pace? Razer may have just launched what could offer the best of both worlds with its new Razer Ornata and Ornata Chroma keyboards. PC gaming systems and peripherals company Razer has announced the Razer Ornata line of gaming keyboards...

Can you remember a time when Corsair didn't make gaming keyboards? In recent years, it's almost hard to, as the company has released a countless number of models and has become a vendor known for quality design. That's important, as when these peripherals cost $100 or more, it's nice to know that they'll last. Building on its reputation for quality, Corsair has just announced a brand-new series called "LUX". As the name might suggest, this could be considered a 'luxury' range, although the prices are in line with the RAPIDFIRE series.  At quick glance, the most noticeable upgrade with the... Read more...
When mechanical keyboards hit the PC gaming scene a number of years ago, it became clear very quickly that there was a preferred choice for switches: CHERRY. While CHERRY existed long before its switches found their way into gaming keyboards, the company has really skyrocketed in popularity in recent years as many top-flight peripheral vendors continue to revolve their product lines around the German company's switches. CHERRY's MX SPEED RGB Keyboard Switches It's become clear in recent years that just because CHERRY already offers a huge number of switches to peripheral vendors, there's still... Read more...
One of our least favorite things to do is type out anything lengthy on a virtual keyboard, like those found on smartphones, tablets, and so forth. With that in mind, you'll have to excuse us for not being stoked about a recently discovered Apple patent for a "configurable force-sensitive input structure for electronic devices." The patent describes a laptop keyboard that replaces traditional physical keys with a special touchpad. If Apple were to implement something like this on, say, a future MacBook model, it would sort of be like typing on the iPad's virtual keyboard, though a little more advanced... 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. (Source: Microsoft) Utilizing the latest... Read more...
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. But like Roccat, another device maker headquartered in Germany, Cougar is making an effort to establish a higher level of brand recognition on our home turf by releasing competitive gaming gear that blend form and function. 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...
