Logitech’s newest keyboard is thin, smooth, and all kinds of sleek. Oh, and the best part about it? It’s solar-powered. I know what you’re thinking, “How often is my keyboard outside in the sunlight? Never.” Don’t worry. The two solar panels at the top of the keyboard work to keep its internal battery charged - even when it’s in low indoor light (including light emit from light bulbs). Other awesome features include the fact that it’s PVC-free, comes in recyclable packagine, and if you’re on a Windows OS, you can download a free app called ‘Solar App’ that you can activate with one key, and brings up a meter that tells you how much keyboard power is left.

That is pretty cool! Although I'm sure when they come out they will be a little expensive. I'm sure I will eventually get one though
And the fact that even light bulbs can charge it makes it even better.

I don't quite understand why a solar panel on a keyboard, your keyboard is powered by the power supply, unless it is just for the key led's or something.

Agreed solar laptops would rock, a whole generation of emo kids would have rockin tans and probably a better outlook on life as they are getting more sun, but an array for a laptop would actually be pretty big.
It wold have to be a fold out.

At first that may be the case for "Solar Powered Laptops", but eventually it will be minimized to a small attachment. Just like the first computers. Im sure they never thought they would get a small as a phone.

According to Logitech:

It doesn’t get more hassle-free than this. This keyboard charges itself whenever there’s light—and stays charged for at least three months in total darkness—so you can say good-bye to battery hassles


This is total geek badassery..So even us basement dwellers can use it as it is powered by nearly any light source. I'm impressed.
