Move over Apple – someone has made a cooler keyboard and mouse than you! Jason Giddings has launched his Kickstarter project to create and build these VERY cool looking keyboard and mouse sets.
From his site: “Multi-Touch keyboards and mice are the next generation in computer peripherals. These elegant well made devices are composed of quality tempered glass, a solid metal base, and the finest components. They are designed using simple existing technology and have no moving parts. They have rechargeable Lithium Polymer batteries and are completely wireless. The tactile sounds and lighting can be turned on or off per the users’ preference plus they are coffee and doughnut resistant!”
One of the things we will dig is that the software for them is open source, so we can break them in all sorts of new and exciting ways!
Pledges start at $10, but if you want one, you will need to pony up $150 for the production mouse, or $250 for a production mouse and keyboard. If you REALLY want to be super-pimp, fork over $1200 or more for a prototype keyboard and mouse, custom etched with your name on the base. Now THAT’S cool.
