PC Keyboard Finally Opens Up

Sometimes I see ideas like these and I just get angry. It’s not that that product idea is so bad. On the contrary, this idea of an opening keyboard is so good that I just want to scream “why didn’t I invent that!”

After all, the idea of a keyboard that opens up into a mini-storage bin is so very obvious. If your desk is anything like mine, then you have pens, CDs, and other office supplies littering your desk space like a landfill.

So why not have a PC keyboard that opens up and stores it all? Well, most of the little junk, anyway. This is exactly what the PS2 Keyboard was invented to do. I have to admit that I wouldn’t have called this a PS2 Keyboard, because I thought it was a keyboard for a certain console gaming system put out by Sony. I believe the PS2 actually refers to the type of connectors needed to make the product work, the PS/2.

I would highly recommend to the makers of this innovative product to make it completely wireless, but I’m sure that is more difficult that it sounds. I could totally see a useful product like this sweeping the nation.

You should be able to purchase the BNI PC PS2 Keyboard and Desktop Organizer at the BB TradeSales site for about $50 USD.

This is a stupid idea. Don’t you have a desk drawer?

“I believe the PS2 actually refers to the type of connectors needed to make the product work, the PS/2.”

That undermines your credibility tremendously. You write for the PC Gadgets section…

And what about USB, do you know what USB stands for?

“I would highly recommend to the makers of this innovative product to make it completely wireless, but I’m sure that is more difficult that it sounds.”

Or not so difficult. I’ve used an RF (NOT optical link, why worry about pointing and keeping a clear path?) keyboard and mouse for several years, and it had to be cheap. The keyboard is still using the first set of batteries since it only generates a signal when keying, though the mouse chews up four AA batteries in about 5 weeks (unless you remove the batteries when not in use) – acceptable, but not great, consider rechargeables.

As to the board-on-a-box, well… Cute, but is it practical?
