Our title says it all, this is definitely not your father’s keyboard and TransluSense made sure of that. TransluSense took the whole entire idea of a keyboard and flipped it on it’s head. The start of this technology begins with the clear glass surface which makes it very nice and clear even when not in use. While they made the entire look and feel of this keyboard completely different from anything that is out there, they also wanted to create a high level of customization accomplished through different “skins”. Not only can you purchase different skins which change the location of things like keys or even the track pad, you can also create your own. The LED’s that give this beautiful keyboard it’s look can change to several thousand colors (which all gamer’s will love).
The Luminae keyboard also has a Bluetooth hookup which allows for wireless capability and a wonderful loss of wires. The rechargeable battery is convenient as well, allowing flexibility if you have a workstation that has a great deal of mobility (basically our whole office). TransluSense also made sure that there weren’t any moving parts which makes this gadget appear to have a long shelf life (we are guessing). Gadgets come and go but this has the potential to completely change the idea of a keyboards across the board. The keyboard also has cameras built into it which are what judge the touch sensitivity of the keyboard (and making you feel like you are in Minority Report without jumping on Oprah’s couch).
This keyboard is a great little gadget and something we want. It is still a prototype which means we couldn’t find the price on website. Hopefully this thing won’t cost more than the computer you own but we will update the post if/when we find out.
