We’ve seen several companies at CES 2018 release new products aimed at gamers. We have Netgear and Linksys both announce new routers that both increase internet speed when gaming, alongside Nvidia showcasing their new Big Format Gaming Displays, and HTC updating their Vive headset with a new Pro model. Moving into the accessory sphere, Corsair announced a slew of new devices at the trade show, including a wireless keyboard and a mousepad that doubles as a Qi wireless charger.
The new K63 wireless keyboard includes CHERRY MX Red mechanical keys, alongside a battery that can last up to 75 hours, despite the blue backlighting. There is also encryption on-board, protecting you from wireless eavesdropping. The keyboard can connect to your PC either via Bluetooth or a wireless dongle. There is even an option to plug it in manually via a USB cord.
Alongside the K63 wireless keyboard, Corsair also announced the MM1000 Qi wireless charging mousepad, which can charge the mouse while you’re using it. Because the mousepad is Qi-enabled, it can also charge other devices that use the standard, such as smartphones. Furthermore, it also comes with a USB Micro-B, Type-C and Lighting Qi charging adapters, so you can charge other devices that don’t have wireless charging capabilities.
Corsair’s K63 wireless keyboard is out now on the company’s website for $130, while the MM1000 will come out sometime this month for $108.
