…Logitech’s new keyboard looks sexy?

diNovo Edge

Logitech has created a keyboard that they consider more a piece of art than a computer peripheral. Called the diNovo Edge, it’s laser-cut from a single piece of Plexiglass and set in a brushed aluminum frame. Only 11 mm thick, the Edge features the PerfectStroke key system that distributes typing force evenly across key surfaces, making every stroke natural and fluid (whatever that means). The TouchDisc scrolling touchpad gives you scrolling, selection and cursor control all from one location. They keys are backlit so that they light up when in use and fade into the background when not. Wires would definitely take away from the cutting edginess of such a device, so none are included and instead you are blessed with a Bluetooth connection for up to 30 feet of typing freedom. And if you’re going to drop $199 on a keyboard, you don’t exactly want to stash it away in your desk when it’s not in use, so the Edge features a charging base/vertical display stand to keep those Li-ion batteries up and running while you show off your uber cool input device. Sadly, Mac users once again get the shaft on this one, as the Apple Key is not one of Logitech’s friends.

…Computers and cars can share design cues?

Boss Computer

Boss Car

Cars and computers captivate my heart and my wallet more than anything else, so anything that combines the two is a match made in heaven. If you’re going to have a colossal computer or a killer car, nothing says eye candy like a little bit of customization. Enter the BOSS FX-57, a modded out computer with styling cues taken from the 1969 Boss 302, including the bright orange color scheme, Boss striping, and a custom hood scoop to keep everything cool. The exhaust fan grilles on the back are recycled RC car wheels, and a real air filter tops the CPU heatsink fan to give each piece of the computer a little bit of car to complete the car theme. The design also features a perfect blend of car and computer terminology. “FX-57” is a reference to the AMD Athlon processor that provides the ‘horsepower’, and on the scoop, “Supercharged 6800GT” references the machine’s video card. He’s even painted the keyboard and mouse to match the case, since no dream computer is complete without the appropriate accessories. My hat is off to this master of the mod, with his beautiful tribute to Mustang muscle.

…Seamless Displays give you more screen then you should ever use?

Seamless Display

Ever wanted to watch a movie, work on a spreadsheet and browse MySpace all at the same time, and not be bothered by the break between your multitude of screens? Me either, but if I did, this would be the monitor to do it on. From the website:

The Radius 320 incorporates three 20.1″ LCD panels into a continuous display system with a total resolution of 5.76 million pixels. With the individual panels wrapping around the user, the Radius 320 provides an ergonomically friendly viewing experience across a 50-inch diagonal.

This behemoth is compatible with any operating system, and the only requirement is a computer with enough video cards to support three DVI outputs at 1600 by 1200 resolution. Now if they would just give World of Warcraft support for multiple screens, these things would fly off the shelves.
