Logitech touts solar-powered wireless keyboard

Posted by Trent Nouveau

Logitech has debuted an $80 solar-powered wireless keyboard that measures only 1/3-inch thick.

The environmentally friendly input device is capable of powering itself from any light source - even indoors. 



Once charged, the keyboard can operate in total darkness for up to three months.



So, how does it work?

Well, the K750 powers itself through an integrated solar panel, thereby eliminating the need for cumbersome power bricks and charging cables.

Meanwhile, a specialized software-based lux meter (available for download on Nov. 15) allows users to conveniently check and precisely adjust solar or light levels.

Additional specs include:

  • Advanced 2.4 GHz wireless connectivity.
  • 128-bit AES encryption.
  • Compact Unifying receiver.
  • Supports up to six Unifying-ready mice and keyboards without multiple USB receivers.
