BulletTrain Express Aluminum Keyboard is the latests accessory to fondle
Not sooner does Apple release some news than scores of manufacturers roll out some must-have accessories to compliment the new arrivals. Last week amongst all the exciting new from Apple came the announcement that the Magic Trackpad, released mid-summer, will have a more dominant role in human-computer interaction, with news of Mac OS X Lion’s adoption of iPhone-type touch scrolling.
The design of the Patent Pending BulletTrain Express Aluminum Keyboard is based on a laptop keyboard with trackpad and is an anodized piece of aluminum designed to fit with the Apple Wireless Bluetooth Keyboard (latest model, without numeric keypad) and the Apple Wireless Bluetooth Magic Trackpad. The assembled trio looks tidy and can be easily stowed away. The product claims to be more ergonomic than regular keyboard use, due to its built-in wrist-rest, and hails the merits of killing the mouse. Personally, I am a MacBook user, and I always carry a mouse with me, but if you love mouse-less computing, I think this must be the product for you.
Some other key features include compatibility with the iPad and the ability to use the BulletTrain Express Platform as a remote control if you have an Apple Home Theater. Rings in at $99.
