Here’s another keyboard from Matias to get you through this post-CES Friday. This one is called the SecurePro, and it’s target market might be the smallest intersection of any Venn diagram ever: Users who want a stylish Bluetooth keyboard AND who require 128-bit AES encryption of its wireless connection.
That’s not to say that folks who love a stylish, wireless clackety keyboard don’t care for security. It’s that folks who care enough about security to buy “the strongest level of encryption available in a keyboard” probably don’t care to drop $170 on a super-cool wireless number.
Hell, these people grow special beards that keep their necks hidden and yet try to gain your trust by showing you a hairless face. Talk about mixed messages.
Anyhow, the new Matias SecurePro is a battery-powered Bluetooth tenkeyless keyboard with an encrypted connection to your computer that would take – get this – “a billion-billion years to crack”.
But it’s a Matias keyboard, so it also has clackety (but quiet) ALPS-style switches, laser-etched keycaps, and a battery that’s big enough to use to charge other devices (it has a couple of USB ports to let you do just this.
The SecurePro is available for pre-order, and will ship in March.
