Logitech's Easy-Switch K811 Bluetooth Illuminated Keyboard Will Make Mac Users Happy

It seems that a Mac version of Logitech's new K810 Bluetooth illuminated keyboard designed primarily for Windows 8 is out in the Canadian wild. The K811 Easy-Switch is apparently the almighty Mac model complete with what else, a Mac keyboard layout with an undeniable Apple-esque styling made to appeal to the sparkly aluminum loving Mac users. The K811 is everything the K810 is which rivals Apple's Wireless Keyboard with an even sleeker design, the power of illuminated keys and a rechargeable battery. Instead of the brushed slate finishing, the K811 features a silver aluminum body and black backlit chiclet keys. No word on the exact release date, but we're sure the K811 is right around the corner.

Update: Logitech has officially announced it, but it looks like it is now called the Easy-Switch Bluetooth Keyboard. It's now available for pre-order on Logitech's website for $100.

Thanks for the tip, Simon!

Type On This Wireless Virtual Laser Keyboard For iPad & iPhone (Video)

Forget about keyboard cases, this Cube Laser Virtual Keyboard made by Celluon is where it's at right now. The future is already here? I remember watching movies with this kind of technology and it was just CGI at the time. Now you can finally get the real deal. The Cube Laser Virtual Keyboard projects a full-sized red lasered keyboard onto a flat surface and will sound a clicking sound when you type. And it can connect to virtually any Bluetooth enabled device, not just the iPad and iPhone. The built-in rechargeable battery will only last for about two and a half hours of continuous typing in the dark of night. Too bad it doesn't come in other laser color choices other than the boring red color. You can grab one for $169.99 over at ThinkGeek. Where else? It's the only place you can geek yourself out. See it in action after the break!
