Solar Powered Keyboard by Logitech

Logitech launched a super awesome must-have gadget earlier this week. A solar powered wireless keyboard for Macs, iPads or iPhones. Too bad it's only for Mac or iOS devices, it would have been awesome to be compatible with my Asus Transformer. So if you're all about green and small CO2 footprints this is for you and of course if you like super awesome gadgets.

  • Light Powered (Obviously) even indoors and in low light condition. If fully charged it will work for an extended period of time (three months) If you're in the arctic circle with two of these babies you're set for 6 months of darkness, bad thing is that only your keyboard will have power and not your mobile devices.
  • Bluetooth
  • Concave Key Design
  • PVC-Free construction, fully recyclable box - For all you tree-huggers :p

Ever heard of eRepublik?

What is Erepublik?

Erepublik is a massive multiplayer online (MMO) game. It hosts 69 different countries. Each country has its own population which is made up of the people that join up to that country. You work and fight your way to success! You can also become a country's president and sign treaties and other agreements (or start wars) There are also eNews Papers you can start and post articles about in-game economics or the constant in-game warfare.

How much does it cost to play?

Sign up is free and there are no monthly fees at all! But if you want to get serious you can buy extra boosters and upgrades from an in-game store.

What's the point?

Erepublik is a social-stratergy game. Social as its about communicating what-your-all-about and encouraging others to follow you and stratergy, as once you have people that respect you or are willing to work with you, you can do so much more...
