Cherry presents protected keyboard

The PC peripherals maker Cherry has presented the new KC 1000 SC keyboard that has a unique feature – you must use a smart card and enter a PIN code before you can use it. Thus your Cherry keyboard will be protected from unauthorized use.

The new Cherry KC 1000 SC keyboard comes with 105 different keys and four hot keys that allow you to instantly start the Windows Calculator app, an e-mail client, and a web browser or make your computer enter Sleep mode. The keyboard is pretty durable too – the smart card reader can be used for up to 100 000 times before it breaks down. There is support for Windows, OS X and Linux and you can use the new Cherry product via a USB 2.0 port, although USB 1.1 is also supported.

The keyboard will be on the market by the end of the year and will be available in black or white. Its price is unknown as of now.
