Avoid unnecessary keyboard spills with Logitech Washable K310

In the fast paced lifestyle that people live nowadays, multi-tasking is a common sight to be seen. At home or at the workplace, people juggle different tasks into a seemingly narrow time.

With the advent of this practice, people tend to commit errors often. Due to difficulties in coordinating one task with another, we sometimes accidentally commit a mistake that we later regret.

Take for instance typing a report in your keyboard while at the same time talking to someone at the phone and sipping some coffee every once in a while. The most frequent accident is you spilling your drink on your keyboard destroying that once pristine ally of yours.

What can you do? There are instances where you can only let your keyboard dry and use it again. In other cases, you have to replace the whole thing and spend a few hard earned dollars for your clumsiness.

Here is where the Logitech Washable Keyboard K310 comes in.

Introduced last Wednesday, the Logitech Washable Keyboard K310 is a device that you can submerge in water. Its design hasn’t changed from Logitech’s other keyboards. The only thing that separates it from the rest is its ability to be dipped into water.

According to Logitech, the Washable K310 keyboard can handle water unlike any other keyboards out there.

Another great thing about this keyboard is that you can easily rinse it once it gets dirty. So no more dusting your keyboards. And the best of it all, it dries easily.

The Logitech Washable Keyboard K310 retails at $39.99 and will soon be available at your retail outlest.

Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard Cover for iPad

If you’re looking for a keyboard for your iPad, then look no further. The Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard Cover might be the answer for your needs.

The Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard Cover not only provides you with a keyboard for those unexpected report submissions, but it also serves as a protective case for your iPad.

Once deployed as a keyboard, the Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard Cover acts as if it is built along with your tablet. Your iPad might even be mistaken to an ultrathin laptop.

Snap the lid off and place it on your desk, the iPad will dock in a narrow white groove behind the keyboard. A set of magnets will lock the iPad in place when it’s in a landscape orientation. It has a strong grip to keep the keyboard attached when you lift the iPad.

The Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard Cover also features rubber bumpers at the keyboard’s corners to prevent contact with the screen and the unnecessary scratches on your tablet’s LCD.

One sad thing about this contraption is that it only protects your iPad’s screen. It doesn’t have any protective features for the sides and the back.

It is also good to note that the Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard Cover comes with a hefty price. Pegged at $99, you’d have to shell extra dollars for you to have this baby.

To scroll using the Cube, you only have to slide your finger along the cube, and to click you can just tap the front and the middle to right or left click.

It is a great addition to your portable devices as it is lightweight and small. Though if you have big hands, it would be best to try it yourself first before purchasing one. It will be released to the public late this month for $70.

Glass-friendly mice

Nope, I don’t mean the four-legged kind who has affinity for that shiny-breakable matter. 😉

Logitech, a Swiss peripheral-device maker, has introduced two mice capable of operating on any surface, and that includes 4mm thick glass.

In a statement, Logitech explained that the regular laser tracking technology used by other mice relies on the ability of the mouse’s sensor to detect textures in a surface. It’s easier for the sensor to identify points that it can use to accurately measure motion if there are lots of irregularities in the surface.

“However, because high-gloss surfaces such as glass are almost completely flat, there are not enough details for a typical laser mouse’s sensor to detect.” Logitech stated.

The new Performance and Anywhere mice though, doesn’t track the surface itself. According to Logitech, the mice use “dark field microscopy to detect tiny particles and micro-scratches on high-gloss surfaces” instead.

The clean areas of the glass are “seen” by the mouse’s sensor as a dark background with bright dots. It then interprets the movement of the dots to precisely track where the device has been moved.
The glass-friendly mice is expected to be available in the US and Europe this month. The Logitech Performance Mouse will be sold at $100 while the mobile-friendly Anywhere Mouse is expected to retail at $80.
