Logitech recently has received FCC approval for a new wireless keyboard/mouse combination called “Cordless Desktop Wave”.
The new device will be Logitech’s first keyboard tailored for use with Microsoft’s new Windows Vista operating system. Compared to the currently available “Cordless Desktop Comfort laser” keyboard, there are now a few dedicated buttons that directly correspond to Vista features.
Directly above the slight curved Wave, there are larger multimedia controls, which however, still do not integrate the SlimDevices wireless music systems, which Logitech acquired last year. The playback controls are surrounded by four buttons that allow access to Vista Gadgets, the Photo Gallery, the Windows Media Player and the Media Center.
Remember when you were promised all those amazing future tech innovations? Just around the corner was supposed to be a shining technology utopia with flying cars, personal space travel to distant galaxies, and bio-implantable cell phones. It’s almost disappointing enough to make you sit at home and watch old episodes of “Space 1999”.
Don’t lose hope! An amazing glimpse of this promised future has just arrived at ThinkGeek in the form of the Bluetooth Laser Virtual Keyboard. This tiny device laser-projects a keyboard on any flat surface… you can then type away accompanied by simulated key click sounds. It really is true future magic at its best. You’ll be turning heads the moment you pull this baby from your pocket and use it to compose an e-mail on your bluetooth enabled PDA or Cell Phone. With 63 keys and and full size QWERTY layout the Laser Virtual Keyboard can approach typing speeds of a standard keyboard… in a size a little larger than a matchbook.
“USB Wireless Space Mouse” is an revolutionary mouse that can be use in the air ! It is quite simple to use. Reverse the mouse and hold it. Position your finger on the infrared part and move the finger. Then you will see the cursor moves on the screen as you move your finger. Since the infrared part functions as a switch for clicking, any operation of mouse including single/double click is possible. You are completely free to take any position off the computer to use it ! Excellent tool for presentation etc. !
Needless to say, it can also be used as a normal optical mouse, on your desk or mouse pad. There is no tangling cable thanks to wireless system. Just put the mouse on a cradle attached for charging. No installation of driver is necessary !
