Logitech has unveiled a wireless, solar-powered keyboard that’s built to not only be free from cables, but from the regular battery-charging the average wireless keyboard would need as well. Aptly named the Wireless Solar Keyboard K750, this kit sports a line of solar panels above the keys that allow it to work without batteries or USB charging, and can store enough juice for up to four months in total darkness. Before you snicker at the thought of having to use it outside so it can charge, get this: like your desktop calculator, the K750 can be powered by indoor lighting so you don’t have to worry about sunbathing while you work.
The overall design’s pretty cool too. It’s a very slim number, measuring just a third of an inch thick, with chiclet-style keys that are designed to feel like you’re typing on a laptop (mechanical, mayhaps?). The keys are also shaped with concave caps (like your regular desktop keyboard) for comfort.
The K750 connectds to a PC via Logitech’s tiny Unifying USB receiver with a 2.4GHz wireless connection, which also works with any other Logitech wireless device you may have. It also ships with a Logitech Solar App that’ll let you check on the K750’s stored power, or how much power the panels are getting from your desk lamp. Handy.
Compatible with PCs and Macs, the K750 is priced at $80, and should start shipping sometime in November.
