LAS VEGAS--At CES, some of the fun is going around trying to find interesting smaller items. In that vein, I came across this compact Bluetooth keyboard made of mostly biodegradable bamboo from Impecca.
The company also makes standard-size bamboo keyboards and mice, but this one's geared toward tablet owners, and its keys have a nice smooth feel. An Impecca rep said those keys have a finish that prevents them from looking worn over time (since I haven't used one for more than a few seconds I can't verify that).
The new keyboard should be shipping soon and carries a retail price of $99.
