Logitech tonight unveiled what should be the first entirely solar-powered computer keyboard. The K750 has two solar panels that collect and store energy in a reserve that can power the keyboard for up to four months in complete darkness. Unlike most solar-powered devices, however, it can charge from indoor lighting and may never run out of energy for the lifetime of the computer. The design is also one of the thinnest at just under 0.28 inches thick and uses ‘chiclet’ keys with a unique contour made to be comfortable when hands are at rest. It pairs with the host computer over an RF-based USB adapter and relies on the same Unifying receiver technology as other Logitech input devices, allowing as many as five other devices beyond the K750 to run off of a single receiver. Both the keyboard itself and companion software will tell the owner whether or not the light conditions are ideal for charging. The peripheral has been designed for a Windows keyboard layout at first, but it will work with a Mac; Logitech hasn’t ruled out creating a Mac-oriented model. It ships to North America in November for $80 and should reach other parts of the world in December. A mouse isn’t currently in the works, both due to the smaller surface area available for a panel but also that hand input would usually obscure the necessary light.
