Sharkoon Announces Shark Force II Ergonomic Gaming Mouse

Sharkoon Technologies is an international supplier of high-performance quality PC components and peripherals. With the SHARK Force II, Sharkoon has developed on its popular all-rounder gaming mouse and now introduces a higher performing upgrade with a more powerful sensor and six selectable DPI levels. According to Sharkoon, the ergonomic form and feel of the mouse remains unchanged from the predecessor and offers a particularly pleasant usability and handling.

With the SHARK Force II, Sharkoon has revised the predecessor model with an upgrade in performance. Inside the mouse, the work is now being done by an effective PixArt PAW3519 optical sensor. With the six preset DPI levels of up to 4,200 DPI, the mouse can be moved with high precision even during demanding applications. The DPI levels can be switched through at the push of a button to enable even more flexibility when gaming or working. In comparison to the predecessor model, the illumination of the SHARK Force logo serves as a visual indication, giving the user feedback as to the selected DPI level.

Zergotech Introduces the Zergotech Freedom: Aussie-based Ergonomic Mechanical Keyboard

Well, introduces to yours truly at least! The Zergotech Freedom has officially been out since April 2020, but anything before March this year might as well be a parallel universe. The Sydney-based company has thus been also seeing a hard time getting the word out on their take on the ergonomic, split mechanical keyboard design. Developed in collaboration with another Sydney-based design company, Boost Design, the Zergotech Freedom has since won the Red Dot product design award and, as of the time of this post, the Australian Good Design award. These design awards specifically call out the two features that interested me as well, in the form of the patented sliding palm rests that ensure your palms are always supported when needed only, and the semi-orthogonal key layout that should theoretically lower the learning curve when going from a more-traditional staggered column setup to the parallel columnar setup usually employed in such keyboards.

The Zergotech Freedom otherwise ticks off just about every feature I expect to see from a split ergonomic keyboard in 2020, including the option of different tactile, clicky, and linear feedback mechanical switches from Kailh, multi-OS compatibility with a programmable interface to customize key mapping on the different layers of the keyboard, tilting and tenting of the keyboard halves for ergonomics, as well as the ability to go with blank keycaps out of the box if desired. What is different here, apart from those palm rests aforementioned, is the inclusion of O-rings to make the keyboard quieter, as well as the provision of a 75% keyboard for discrete key functionality. This means that the learning curve will be even lower, although the foot print occupied by the keyboard is higher than contemporary offerings. The Zergotech Freedom retails from $339 US, the pricing being another thing in common with other such keyboards, and one that I want to get my hands on to see if the pricing is justified.

ZSA Announces The Moonlander Mark 1 Next-gen Ergonomic Keyboard

ZSA Technology Labs, the makers of the excellent ErgoDox EZ Shine and the Planck EZ today introduced their latest ergonomic keyboard titled The Moonlander Mark 1. The company claims this is a result of over three years of R&D, incorporating feedback from customers and the general keyboard community as a whole on what they wanted from the ErgoDox EZ and other such split, ergonomic keyboards. The Moonlander Mark 1 boasts features including a thumb cluster that can be positioned to better suit your hand size/shape, tilting and tenting of the two keyboard halves for better ergonomics, a wrist rest (on each half) that automatically angles with tilting/tenting, hot-swappable switches with Cherry MX and Kailh BOX switches to choose from out of the box, and enhanced portability with the ability to fold the wrist rest (wing) and just plug in the left half via Type-C connectivity to use as a game/macro-pad.

The Moonlander Mark 1 continues the design scheme of the ErgoDox EZ and Planck EZ in having columnar keys, is available in black or white colors, and with ten switch options at checkout. Fully open source firmware is available here as well, for both programming the keys and layers of functions and also the RGB LEDs for backlighting of every single key. There is a first-party configurator available as well, with Windows, macOS, and Linus support without any special drivers needed. The keyboard also has status LEDs on board and, as the name is befitting here, uses audio buzzers to beep out status feedback if desired. The wings and thumb clusters are optional, and come in the package that also includes a carry case. Going for a significant $365 from the dedicated product page (shipping included), the company also offers a no-questions-asked 2-year warranty to help sweeten the deal.

For the start of the New Year, Sharkoon now introduces four new accessories for gamers. These products are: Sharkoon Backpack, SKILLER SGP2 XXL mouse mat, X-Rest ALU headset stand and the ELITE SHARK WR200 wrist rest.

The Sharkoon Backpack is made of high-quality 600D polyester, which is characterized by a high degree of scuff and abrasion resistance. Apart from being robust, the material is water-repellent and easy to clean. And with a volume of 16 liters as well as a variety of compartments and pockets, the backpack offers enough space for notebooks, valuables or simply everything needed for short trips. For mobile devices such as notebooks or tablets, padded compartments are available. These have a Velcro strap to keep the devices securely inside. A hidden pocket on the back panel protects documents and other things from unwanted hands. The pocket on the shoulder strap and the compartment on the top of the backpack both enable easier handling and quicker access to cash or EC cards. There is also a special space for a power bank in the backpack. This can be connected via an integrated extension cable which has a type A USB plug. Thus, smartphones or other compatible devices can be conveniently charged via the USB port on the outside. The Sharkoon Backpack is available at a recommended retail price of 34.99 euros.

CharaChorder Aims to Enable Typing at the Speed of Thought, Shows off Prototype at CES

Attending CES is a mixed bag even before you arrive there, and it comes in the form of about a billion marketing emails invading your inbox. Amidst all these, however, was one from this US-based startup company that interested me in more ways than one. Perhaps because I handle keyboard duties here on TechPowerUp, among other things, but I have always been fascinated with products aiming to enable a more ergonomic and efficient typing experience. These products tend to take the form of smaller form factor, split or otherwise, keyboards that still adopt the staggered columns of keys. Layers are the name of the game here, with customization in the form of key mapping enabling people to position keyboards with a combination of tent, tilt, and height adjustments- especially for split keyboards. But all these still rely on the end user typing on, say, a QWERTY layout with 2-4 fingers simultaneously nearly every single time. CharaChorder wants to rethink the keyboard, and offer a product that helps you type with all 10 fingers.

The company sought inspiration from the humble stenograph, as well as arguably more efficient typing layouts such as Dvorak over QWERTY, and had a prototype for demo at CES that showcased their "3-dimensional" typing via sticks that can be assigned to a different function for each axis. I admittedly was skeptical with the emails, as well as the rough plastic casing they initially showed, but then they pulled out the working PCBs as part of the two connected halves, and typed my name and affiliation on a connected laptop at ~200 WPM. There were also only two errors throughout, which is impressive given these were words and sentences they had no way to practice before, and the speed comes in the form of them having practiced ~30-60 min a day for a month in "chorded" mode which allows simultaneous presses instead of one character at a time, which is the recommended training schedule for new users. The CharaChorder is also ambidextrous enabling users to quickly use this alongside a mouse, or even a joystick, with applications ranging from typing, to gaming via macros, and more. The company has the product up for pre-order already for $199.99 with expected delivery in December 2020 provided they hit their funding goals. Check out their website, as well as this demo video, to get a better idea of how the product works.

Truly Ergonomic Introduces "The Perfected Keyboard"; Crowdfunding Campaign Currently Active

Truly Ergonomic is a peripheral company based out of Canada that we have had some interaction with before. Their namesake Truly Ergonomic Keyboard was reviewed in detail over an year ago, and it continues to be among the few truly ergonomic (see what I did there?) keyboard offerings to have existed. It was not without its share of issues, however, and the company aims to do one better this time with "The Perfected Keyboard". That name is a bold one, if I say so myself, but the company contacted us about why they believe it so, and shared more details at the same time.

To begin with, The Perfected Keyboard should be a lot more familiar to those that are accustomed to a more typical keyboard layout- a dedicated function key row as well as staggered columns alone will make any transition over to this keyboard a lot quicker than with The Truly Ergonomic Keyboard from before. One of the ergonomic features this time round comes via the smaller-than-full size form factor, which helps keep the mouse closer and have arms at natural shoulder width. But there are more tricks up this keyboard's sleeve, and be sure to read past the break for more information.

Desk Installation made simple and fast with the supplied various types table clamp or grommet you are set with 5 minutes. Powered by Innovation and supported by our 2 year warranty service.
