Considering we do most of our typing indoors, a solar-powered keyboard sounds about as useful as a screen door on a submarine. Logitech assures us, however, that its new Wireless Solar Keyboard K750 powers itself whenever and wherever there's light, inside our out.
"The keyboard is still the best input device for typing emails and IMs, updating your Facebook page or posting responses to your favorite blogs — and the Logitech Wireless Solar Keyboard K750 is the next big innovation in keyboard technology," said Denis Pavillard, vice president of product marketing for Logitech’s keyboards and desktops. "The Logitech Wireless Solar Keyboard is powered by light but can work in total darkness for up to three months. Plus, with its PVC-free construction and fully recyclable packaging, it’s designed to minimize its footprint."
The plank comes with an integrated solar panel, which means no futzing around with a power brick, charging cables, or swapping batteries. And to help keep track of things, the included solar power app (available November 15, 2010) features a lux meter so you'll know if there's enough light or not.
Logitech will begin selling the new keyboard later this month for $80.
