Your new 2021 iPad Pro 12.9″ won’t work with your old Magic Keyboard [Updated]

Apple's Magic Keyboard for the iPad Pro may have been the biggest nudge in making the tablet a more capable laptop replacement, but don't expect the removable folio case to play nicely with the new 12.9-inch iPad Pro. Despite the recently-revamped largest iPad Pro looking, on the face of it, identical to the 2018 and 2020 versions of the tablet, a slight increase in thickness means a big hit on your wallet if you're upgrading.

CharaChorder Lite lets you type whole words like you’re playing a piano

If typing one key at a time on a QWERTY keyboard isn't fast enough for you, the new CharaChorder Lite keyboard offers an interesting alternative. The product looks just like an ordinary QWERTY keyboard but allows users to type entire words at a time using 'chords' as if they were playing the piano. The result, the team claims, is a typing speed of up to 250 words per minute.

Razer Huntsman V2 keyboard just made every key 2x as useful

A keyboard by the name Razer Huntsman V2 was revealed overnight with a bonkers new feature. The Razer Huntsman V2 Analog keyboard, as it's also called, works with dual-step actuation.

Razer Huntsman V2 Analog keyboard offers customizable dual-step actuation

Keyboard designs and layouts haven't exactly changed in the past decades but that doesn't mean there hasn't been any innovation in that space. Most of the new technologies can be found in areas you don't see, like the switches that can make or break the experience, as Apple learned the hard way. Most keyboards for gamers often boast of mechanical switches but Razer is now pushing its new Analog Optical Switch technology that promises not only longevity but also flexibility when assigning two different levels of actuation to different actions.

Apple patent reveals a keyboard that can change its display

Computer keyboards haven't really changed that much over the decades. Some keys have grown additional functions and the Fn and Ctrl keys on laptops keep switching places but that standard set of keys and their arrangements are pretty much set in stone. That makes it difficult and even wasteful to have different keyboard layouts and different languages, as different models have to be made for different kinds of keyboards. Sure, you can configure a key to produce something different but what's printed on the keycap remains the same, at least until Apple makes its latest patent a reality.

Forgotten Game Boy keyboard revealed, with Phone function

Today a long-lost add-on for the original Nintendo Game Boy, "Workboy", was shown in full working order.
