Computer keyboards are increasingly becoming the most popular type of personal computing, but they still lack the user interface and functionality of traditional keyboards.
Now a new keyboard is making the transition to home automation easier.
The maker of the Das Keyboard has created a computer keyboard that can be programmed to act like a tablet.
It has an Intel Atom Z3735F quad-core processor and 512GB of RAM, making it the first keyboard to come with a touchscreen display.
“It’s a good example of the new wave of software-based keyboard systems,” said Alex Kocsis, a software engineer at Intel, in a statement.
“They use the same basic technology, but there are a lot of ways to customize them to your liking.”
Das Keyboard, which is still in the early stages of development, is priced at $1,200 for a 128GB model, which includes a keyboard, battery, power supply, and a software package.
It’s available for preorder now, and the company has posted a few sample designs to show off its capabilities.
The keyboard is compatible with many of the popular Android operating systems, and it also comes with a wireless keyboard that works with most mobile devices.
The keyboard can be connected via USB or Bluetooth.
The Das Keyboard can also be used as a tablet, but it’s not designed to do that.
“I am very pleased to have this keyboard on my hands,” Kocses said.
“I will be getting this keyboard and trying it out in my home automation system.”
The company has received more than 1,000 orders for the Das keyboard, according to Kocsis.
