Logitech unveils new "no lag" keyboard and mouse

All images Sam Rutherford  Gizmodo

I can see this keyboard being very useful for creatives and for those who multitask a lot.

Starting off with the Logitech Craft keyboard, it features Crown, an aluminium touch-based dial that works exactly like Microsoft Dial. It recognizes the apps you're using and provides instant access to the tools you need. In Photoshop and Illustrator, for example, users can control functions like zoom, brush size, hardness, opacity, brightness, contrast, saturation, object size and more by just turning the dial. The Logitech Easy-Switch technology will allow them to easily switch between audio sources. It also has smart illumination where depending on the placement of your hands, will illuminate the keyboard accordingly and adjust its lighting. Taps and twists of the Crown can also replace keyboard shortcuts for OS-level tasks like switching desktops or alt-tabbing between open apps. "CRAFT puts you in your creative element - every time you sit at the desk".

The keyboard is unquestionably intended for workplace use, thanks to the shortcut-oriented Crown and the rather steep $199 price tag.

Army Corps to open dams to stem Houston flooding
When officials chose to carry out the controlled releases they said doing so would mitigate damage to surrounding neighborhoods. The coast guard said it had rescued more than 3,000 by boat and air, and was taking more than 1,000 calls per hour.

Logitech doesn't mention what type of switch we'll find beneath those retro typewriter-style caps, but the folks at Wired say the keys have "slightly more travel than a laptop keyboard", and describe the tactile sensation as "a bit squishy". To connect it via Bluetooth you will need Windows 8 or above or macOS 11 and higher. Logitech Flow even lets you copy and paste things across up to three different machines, and because Flow works over Bluetooth or Logitech's own wireless dongle, there's no cords to worry about either.

Check out the videos below to see how the Logitech Craft keyboard works and how the MC Sound speakers perform.

Of course, for all its tappy, turny, dialy-ness, Craft is still a keyboard and Logitech makes much of the "unique spherical dishing of the keys" which improve typing. We will be posting a full hands-on review in the coming days so stay tuned!
