Arduino-based KeySweeper charger sniffs MS wireless keyboards

For geeks and professional typists, the choice of keyboard is like religion and some of them adhere to the religion of Microsoft's Wireless Keyboard line. These users, however, now need to be rather aware, if not paranoid, about their beliefs. Samy Kamkar, a hardware enthusiast and security buff, has just developed an Arduino-powered contraption that can sniff out any and every keystroke done on any Microsoft Wireless Keyboard within range, rendering even the most secure of passwords useless. And it even functions as a real USB wall charger to boot.

ZAGG Pocket Keyboard brings comfy typing to your phone, tablet

As smartphones get larger, the ability to type on them has progressively been tougher. More screen means less room for your non-growing human hands. Hacking out a quick text message might be easy enough, but if you’ve got a longer email you need to work on — you know the strain your thumbs feel. ZAGG is introducing their new Pocket Keyboard for those times when a virtual keyboard on your larger screen just won’t do. It might even have you turning away from the desktop, as ZAGG says 85% of the standalone keyboard is found in their offering.

101touch next-gen keyboard is all touchscreen

101touch next-gen keyboard is all touchscreen

Anyone who has ever tried to use a touchscreen keyboard knows immediately the issue with those. The keys lack any tactile feel. Without tactile feel, it's hard to tell if you have your fingers in the correct location for touch typing and it's hard to tell when you have actually pressed the keys. This is why many people opt for external keyboards when they need to type a lot.

Razer BlackWidow Chroma Review

Razer BlackWidow Chroma Review

Of the three Razer Chroma devices we've reviewed this week, the BlackWidow gaming keyboard is by far the most complex. In color, anyway - instead of just a couple of different ways to display color, this keyboard works with a wide variety of color blasts. It's one of the finest gaming keyboards on the market, too, of course. Since it first launched in 2010, the Razer BlackWidow has been one of the most popular gaming keyboards on the circuit - the pro eSports gaming circuit, that is - this is one of the keyboards the top gamers in the world use when they're competing for millions of dollars in cash prizes.

With the 600K comes the same Cherry MX switches and familiar design, but with less features than the 700K powerhouse.

Hardware hack lets you play Snake on an LED-lit keyboard

Before there were birds, plants, or candies, there were snakes. The semi-addictive game debuted on Nokia's mobile phones and become *the* mobile game, until colored screens and higher end hardware pushed it into obscurity. But what if you had fond memories of the game, a penchant for modding any hardware you can get your hands on, and lots of time in those hands? Why not recreate the game in the most unimaginable computer possible, as shown in this mod by Jeroen Domburg, software developer by day, hardware modder by night, and creator of possibly the world's first Snake game on a keyboard.

HashKey: a USB hashtag key to expedite your tweets

HashKey: a USB hashtag key to expedite your tweets

The world is full of devices that seem less than practical for every day use, and the HashKey can probably be counted among them, as it seems like little more than a novelty. HashKey is exactly what it sounds like: a key dedicated solely to typing a hashtag without all of that multi-button combination nonsense. It's aimed at the social media lovers among us, those who can't stand straining their hands to repeatedly hit multiples keys, and for those who, perhaps, take offense to the hashtag being denied its own dedicated spot on the keyboard.

Nexus 9 keyboard folio now available — for $129

Nexus 9 keyboard folio now available — for $129

Now that we’re well heeled in Nexus 9-ness, Google has gone ahead and released the keyboard folio for their flagship tablet. As expected, the keyboard folio does all we were told it would: attaches magnetically, doubles as a hardcover case — all the good stuff. We do find it interesting that Google has made the folio with a mechanical keyboard, though. It’s also interesting that it comes in one color, “black leather”. Even more interesting is the price Google thinks you’ll pay.
