Sony styles up keyboard skins for the holidays

As winter greets Japan, Sony unveils a small set of themed keyboard covers that jazz up Vaio computers.

While many of us plug away on monotone-colored keyboards, creative folks at Sony continue to push the bar away from the anemic designs that plague our store shelves.

If you regularly observe fashionable computer accessories, you might recall that Sony's U.S. arm sells a wide array of colorful rubber keyboard skins for Vaio computers -- however, in Japan, the company sells something much more stylish.

Meet Sony's new winter line of keyboard skins, which come in three themes: party, heart, and moon.

Set in a bold shade of red, the heart keyboard skin consists of two large white hearts surrounded in a flurry of snowflakes. A series of blue hues adorn the moon keyboard cover, which features a sophisticated font, big city skyline, and Santa with his reindeer flying overhead. The party keyboard cover incorporates a variety of festive decorations and accents, as well as a bold font for the letters (except for the word party).

Unfortunately, these exclusive seasonal accessories only exist in Japan at the moment for 2,980 yen ($36), and work with the VAIO C, E, S, and Tap 20 series computers.

Keyboards can't get any cuter than this. Sony Japan
