Even those of us who talk about going green and saving the environment use gadgets that are not earth friendly. So, if you are ready for a green plunge, Logitech has the K750, a wireless solar keyboard.
The K750 comes with a Bluetooth dongle that plugs into a PC’S USB port. The sleek wireless keyboard has two solar panels on the top, just above the Function keys. The keyboard derives its energy from natural sunlight as well as artificial indoor light. An off/on slider has been added to store the charge within the keyboard.
There is a charging indicator with smileys to show the status of the charge. When used with the Solar App specially designed for the keyboard, it shows the lux level of the light source using which the keyboard is getting charged as well as the battery reserve status.
The K750 is a full keyboard, and typing on it is comfortable. Interestingly, the Function keys have shortcuts assigned to them. For instance, the F2 has a message icon that opens Outlook, while the F4 launches calculator, etc.
However, a Caps Lock indicator, common in even entry level keyboards now, is missing on the device.

BAG IT OR JUNK IT? Good looking, easy to use and environment friendly, but seriously overpriced.
