Logitech G19 Gaming Keyboard

What is hard to understand is why gamers need a special kind of keyboard to enjoy their gaming needs. Normally, a conservative PC owner would be wary of hitting the keys as hard as they can and use the traditional PC towards hardcore games. Apparently, to understand that need and to satisfy the demands, specialized keyboards are being manufactured such as this one from popular brand Logitech.

The Logitech G19 is the latest gaming keyboard from Logitech and the follow up to the successful G15. Whereas the G15 had a orange backlit LCD with nothing but monochrome content, the G19 gets a full-blown color LCD for watching video and showing game stats. If you are an avid gamer looking for a new and cool gaming keyboard, the Logitech G19 may be just what you want.

The Logitech G19 is packed with features including a tiltable color LCD called the GamePanel that sports a resolution of 320 x 240. The keys are backlit and the user can choose which keys are lit and which aren’t for a completely custom layout in a dark environment. Logitech designed the G19 so that it could accept input from five keys simultaneously.

If you have the scratch lying around to spend on the G19, it is hands down the coolest gaming keyboard that Logitech has ever produced. The G19 is equally at home gaming or typing your latest term paper and it looks really cool sitting on the desk as well.

Goodbye Mice Hello Touch Screen

Touch Screen technology is obviously the new craze as far as providing an alternative interface in the world of PC computing. One day, they may even replace the standard keyboards or mice, two PC components that are needed to enjoy the privileges of using a PC.

At the moment, the real issue is cost. Technology comes with a price and apparently this is one aspect that is the stumbling block of consumers who want to make the jump to new technology. Actually that has always been the case. As far as which technology to use, here is one design that is bound to point us towards that concrete proof of PC interface shifts.

Proposed to be sold as a stand-alone unit the HP LiM (Less is More) concept is set to feature a 19? transparent touch OLED screen along with a wireless keyboard. The touch screen slides down to create a more ergonomic touch experience and easy navigation. It also features a virtual trackpad thus cutting down on mouse costs.

It does seem enticing to look forward to promising tomorrows. But the matter of cost is also another thing to consider. During these times of economic recession, all we can do is wait for economies to improve. If not, all of these will remain concepts and restricted to people who can really afford them.
