NEW PRODUCTS – Mini Chiclet Keyboard, Mini Wireless Keyboard, and Wireless Keyboard and Mouse Combo w/ Batteries
NEW PRODUCTS: Add a good quality, slim keyboard to your Raspberry Pi, BeagleBone Black or other mini-computer with these sleek black chiclet keyboards. We tried many keyboards to find ones that felt good for every-day use and didn’t take up too much room.
To use with a Raspberry Pi, change the keyboard to USA PC104 layout:
Switch to root user.
Run ‘dpkg-reconfigure locales’ and change from en_GB.UTF-8 to en_US.UTF-8.
Run ‘dpkg-reconfigure keyboard-configuration’ and change the keyboard to USA PC104 (again, change as needed).
Mini Wireless Keyboard – Black w/ Batteries: This keyboard is wireless, and the matching dongle connects through a USB port so it works great with just about anything – it shows up just like any other keyboard. 2 x AAA batteries are required but they’re included! The dongle has a storage spot in the battery case, so if you’re unable to find it, try opening up the battery spot and see if its tucked in there.
Wireless Keyboard and Mouse Combo w/ Batteries – One USB Port!: Add a good quality, slim chiclet keyboard as well as a optical mouse to your Raspberry Pi, Beagle Bone Black or other mini-computer with this wireless combo set. Best of all, it only uses a single USB port! This combo comes with a sleek black chiclet keyboard and and mouse both controlled by a single wireless USB dongle. The mouse is comfortable for all hand sizes, has optical tracking, and two buttons + scroll wheel.
The keyboard and mouse connects through a USB port so it works great with just about anything. It even comes with batteries, so you’ll be ready to go instantly. The USB dongle stores in either the mouse or keyboard so if you can’t find it, open up the battery cases on either to find the dongle tucked into its storage slot there.
