Fresh off the announcement of their solar-charging bluetooth keyboard case for the iPad, Logitech is back with a new solar-charging keyboard, the Wireless Solar Keyboard K760. However, there's one powerful feature in this keyboard that will make it extremely attractive to power users: it has the ability to pair and switch between multiple devices. This means that it could easily be connected to the Mac, then taken to another room with the iPad, and then on the go with the iPhone, with its ability to switch between three devices. The multiple device support, combined with the fact that it doesn't need to have its batteries replaced, and its similar layout to the official Apple Bluetooth keyboard, may make it a more attractive option for anyone shopping for an Apple-compatible keyboard. Now, if only they could find a way to make the Magic Trackpad solar-powered. That thing eats through AA batteries like Pac-Man. The Wireless Solar Keyboard K760 will be available this June for an MSRP of $79.99.
There is a new Kickstarter project, Brydge, by Brad Leong that will come close to converting an iPad into a notebook with a hinged aluminum case and Bluetooth keyboard that looks a lot like a Macbook.
What makes the Brydge so special when compared to the various other folio keyboard combos out there, is the stunning design that borrows so much from Apple. Seriously, this ought to have been designed in Cupertino. It sports aerospace-grade aluminum, and has a MacBook-style keyboard. Two models are slated for an October 2012 debut, one with speakers, one without. So far the project is a roaring success. At the time of this writing, about midway through the project’s launch day, it had 650 backers and had already raised $136,070 well above it’s $90,000 goal.
Check out the video. If anyone wants in, pledge levels start at as $150 and secure the indie-investor early access to the Brydge when it is ready to ship.
