A keyboard made for night-vision goggles

For your next nocturnal paramilitary mission.


It's such a common problem: There you are, wearing your best pair of night-vision goggles, and you can't see the damn keyboard. What's a clandestine operative to do?

iKey claims to have the answer with a LED keyboard that it says is "compatible with NV goggles, featuring filters that remove unwanted light interference" such as halo glows, according to Ubergizmo. It's kind of a version of Stacco Switch's rugged M779 that provides the necessary discretion you won't get with an LED piano lamp. Unfortunately for amateur spies, it seems to be aimed at military agencies and therefore will likely be well beyond the usual budget. Which is too bad because it certainly beats a lot of the nocturnal alternatives.
