Today we introduced Logitech Wireless Solar Keyboard K750 – the company’s first light-powered keyboard. When we first sat down to build the keyboard, we wanted to design it so that it would deliver the superior performance people have come to expect from Logitech products, even in areas where there is little light – think winter in the Arctic Circle.
So, we created a keyboard that powers itself whenever there’s light using integrated solar panels — no power bricks or charging cables needed. But, even though it’s powered by light, the keyboard can operate for up to three months in total darkness.
Take a look at the video below from the folks in our marketing team to get your first look at our new Logitech Wireless Solar Keyboard K750, and learn more about what makes this keyboard so special.
And, at only 1/3-inch thick, the keyboard doesn’t just look good, it feels good. The low-profile keyboard features Logitech Incurve keys™ that support the shape of your fingertips, while helping guide your fingers to the right keys. In addition, the soft, rounded edges make it easy for your fingers to glide from key to key.
We also included a solar power app (available for download beginning Nov. 15, 2010 at logitech.com/k750/solarapp) that features a lux meter to help you measure ambient light, gives at-a-glance information about battery levels, and even alerts you when you need more power.
The Logitech Wireless Solar Keyboard K750 is also the latest in our line-up of products that offer Logitech Advanced 2.4 GHz wireless connectivity in our tiny Logitech Unifying receiver. With Unifying, you can connect up to six compatible devices to one receiver, eliminating clutter and freeing up your USB ports.
The keyboard is available for pre-order today on our website, and will begin rolling-out with retailers later this month.
