Apple Keyboard concept with iPhone induction charging & OLED keys

Apple Keyboard concept with iPhone induction charging & OLED keys

As concepts go, here's perhaps an obvious one: take one of the slicker keyboards around - in this case Apple's waif-like offering - add some Optimus-style OLED keys and a dock for everybody's favorite cult smartphone, and settle back to reap the praise.  The work of Cosmo Scharf (I'm really hoping that's their real name), it would include induction charging for the iPhone 3G together with context-specific hot-keys.

Finally, I can type in Klingon

Finally, I can type in Klingon

I've used an English language keyboard for years, mainly because it's the only layout I feel comfortable with.  Though it's not my preference, I've forced myself to just grit my teeth and make the best of a bad situation.  I've long desired a keyboard for a language I'm more comfortable with, and finally, that prayer has been answered.  I present to you - the Klingon keyboard.

Infinite Response VAX77 foldable 76-key controller keyboard

We're always on the look out for sturdy travel keyboards, and Atek's bucks the trend by looking to have the same key size and apparently the same key travel as your desktop 'board.  The payoff with the OnBoard Travel Keyboard is the size: with no folding, rolling or twisting mechanisms, it's still pretty large.  Nonetheless, you get a neat slide-over cover, plus an inflatable wrist-rest.
