As we expand the number of smart devices in our house, many of us also expand the number of keyboards. One for the computer, one for the iPad, one for the Apple TV, etc. Satechi isn’t entirely a fan of this approach, and have recently announced the BT Wireless Smart Keyboard as the ideal solution for a tangle-free workspace, regardless of the technology that workspace entails.
The Satechi Bluetooth Wireless Smart Keyboard is a mere 0.7” thick, and connects via Bluetooth to free up an extra USB port for other devices. Satechi claims it can connect from up to 33 feet away, which is great news for those who haven’t thought this whole monitor proximity thing through.
The BT Wireless Smart Keyboard delivers a comfortable typing experience and features whisper-quite keys, reducing distractions and creating a more efficient workspace. The lightweight design of the keyboard also gives users the freedom to take it with them on the go to use with any mobile device.
Perhaps the coolest feature, though, is the multi-device functionality. The BT Wireless Smart Keyboard features multimedia keys for video and audio content, including play/pause, volume, forward/backtrack and more. The keys can also activate the home screen and onscreen keyboard on your iPhone and iPad. The white version, specifically, features keys mapped for use with Mac/iOS.
A black version is available with specific keys mapped for use with PC/Android.
Other features include an on/off switch and sleep function to maximize battery life. If desired, users can wirelessly switch between 5 connected devices with the simple press of a button or can create a wired connection via the included USB cable.
The BT Wireless Smart Keyboard will soon be available in white or black for an introductory price of $54.99.
