Taiwanese technology maker AU Optronics is attempting to steal Logitech's recently acquired thunder with its new solar panel keyboard. This design integrates the solar panel directly into the laptop's keyboard, allowing for eco-friendly outdoor computing.

While the Logitech keyboard has to be plugged into your computer or laptop to work, the AU Optronics solar keyboard requires nothing but sunshine to operate.

Implications - As we continue to progress in the eco-conscious society that places a premium on products that run on solar power or run without causing harm to the environment, products like the AU Optronics solar keyboard are going to become even more coveted than they are now. AU Optronics deserves credit for this innovation and their commitment to environmentally protective products.
