Add a miniature wireless controller to your computer project with this combination keyboard and touchpad.

The smallest wireless USB keyboard available, a mere 6" x 2.4" x 0.5" (152mm x 59mm x 12.5mm), it's small but usable to make a great accompaniment to a computer such as the Beagle Bone or Raspberry Pi. The keyboard itself is battery powered (there's a rechargeable battery inside that you charge up via the included USB cable). The keyboard communicates back to the computer via 2.4 GHz wireless link (not Bluetooth).The unit also features a built-in laser pointer which makes it perfect for presentations.

The keyboard can only be used with a USB-host such as a computer. Its not intended to be used with an Arduino or Basic Stamp, etc. We tested it with the Raspberry Pi and it works great: uses only one USB port for both mouse and keyboard.

    Good keyboard for Raspberry Pi 2 Model B

    Overall: 4 out of 5

    It is a small keyboard, and has the inherent limitations associated with size. If you don't want a miniature keyboard, then don't buy one clearly labelled "miniature". It should be obvious from the photo that this has a touch pad and not a "Mouse." My only complaint is the touch pad is a little too sensitive even at the lowest setting in the Pi Settings.

    Wireless Miniature Keypad

    Overall: 3 out of 5

    This key pad is not worth the money. I can not get the # sign key to produce a # sign. So frustrating to pay so much and the keypad will not function properly. There are other keys that will not function also using the shift key. Totally disappointed.

    Great idea poor performance

    Overall: 1 out of 5

    Horrible range and intermittant keys. I bought this to use with my PC based DVR. To have any hope of it working I have to be within 6 feet of the receiver with a clear line of sight. To be able to enter a password I have to be within 2 feet and it often takes 3 or more tries. The keys sometimes don't register and sometimes repeat. It goes to sleep and you have to hold a key down to wake it up. You have to make sure you don't use a key that will mess up what you are doing. I do have a G wireless network but that shouldn't be a problem unless they don't expect you to use a wireless network with a computer. It's a great design that just doesn't work well. The rechargable battery is nice. Not sure what to do when it is dead though since it isn't removable. My experience with a lot of other wireless keyboards has been similar. Most don't have any range to speak of at best. It uses a standard mini usb to charge and just comes with a usb cable so your PC has to be on to charge it. I just use an old cell phone charger.
