The Logitech Wireless Solar Keyboard K750 powers itself whenever there's light, even indoors, the company said. A full-charged Solar Keyboard can stay charged for at least three months in total darkness. The keyboard powers itself through integrated solar panels and includes an integrated power-indicator light. The device is a third of an inch thick, and incurve keys that support the shape of fingertips. In addition, the keys have rounded edges that make it easier for fingers to glide from key to key, Logitech says. The K750 is scheduled to be available in the U.S. and Europe in November for a suggested retail price of $80. On Nov. 15, Logitech plans to offer for download a solar power app that offers power levels and alerts the user then more power is needed.
