50 Kickass Keyboards

From Glass Keyless Peripherals to $1,200 Keyboards

— May 31, 2010 — Tech
The keyboard is often the unsung hero of the computer world, but if more keyboards were like the kickass keyboards in this cluster, this would be a different story.

My favorite of the bunch is the see-through glass keyboard, but there are tons of close contenders for the crown. There are waterproof keyboards, steampunk keyboards, and keyboards that fold up. Whether they are keyless and made of glass or super-pricey designs that cost $1,200, these kickass keyboards will keep you logged on.
