Cideko Wireless Media KB

Cideko has unveiled a unique keyboard and controller combo designed explicitly for home theater PCs. Superficially resembling just a keyboard, the Wireless Media Keyboard has a built-in 3D sensor that uses the keyboard itself as the mouse; shoulder-mounted buttons provide clicks. A row of media controls at the top let users navigate directional interfaces like Windows Media Center or play and skip through music and videos.

It connects to computers through an RF wireless adapter that plugs into a spare USB port.

In spite of the demonstration, a price and a ship date for the keyboard aren't available. Cideko nonetheless tailors its products to an English-speaking audience and is likely to release its peripheral in Europe or North America. [via AVING]
