Impecca's Bamboo keyboards and mice are surprisingly comfortable (hands-on)

Impecca's Bamboo keyboards and mice have been on the market for quite some time, and the company will soon be releasing a smaller, Bluetooth 3.0 keyboard for Apple products to round out its lineup. Computer accessories may not be as impressive as a bamboo phone, but we were pleasantly surprised by what we found when we took a look at the attractive bamboo mice, the new Bluetooth keyboard, and the full-sized wireless keyboard on the show floor at CES. The mice, though a little small, fit well into the contours of my hand, and the scroll wheel moved smoothly. Some — but not all — of the keys of the full-sized, wireless keyboard were a little spongey and resisted being pressed down, but the deep keys and the bamboo's unique clacking sound made for a satisfying typing experience nonetheless. The smaller Bluetooth version's keys are obviously shallower, but the portable keyboard worked wonderfully, with each of the keys pressing down smoothly and swiftly. The Bluetooth Bamboo Keyboard will be available in February for $99, which is definitely on the pricey side for a keyboard that isn't running Bluetooth 4.0.
