Logitech has announced a new keyboard and speaker system aimed at high-end professionals. The CRAFT Keyboard and the MX Sound are the latest peripherals from the company. Both peripherals are expected to be launched this October.
The CRAFT Advanced Keyboard is aimed directly at professionals who want to get the most out of their keyboard. Featuring a touch-sensitive aluminum dial on the top of the keyboard known as the Crown, the CRAFT Keyboard hopes to provide professionals with great two-handed interactions. Examples of what users can do with the Crown includes changing brush sizes in Adobe Photoshop, stroke width in Adobe Illustrator, or control fonts and format in Microsoft Word.
“Our new flagship Logitech CRAFT keyboard is for all creators who spend a lot of time designing and creating who want to work with greater precision and feel connected to their work,” said Art O’Gnimh, global head of keyboards at Logitech. “The creative input dial gives you instant access to the functions you need, the moment you need them, allowing you to increase your productivity by simply touching the dial. CRAFT puts you in your creative element every time you sit at the desk.”
The MX Sound is a Bluetooth speaker that promises a premium sound in a compact and stylish design. Featuring high-end drivers and a rear-facing port tubes, Logitech is trying to bring convenience and power in a portable and stylish form factor. The speakers promise to reproduce sound as the artist intended which is something that other speakers of this size cannot deliver.
“With MX Sound you now can have amazing audio in a product designed to complement even the most premium desktop environment,” said Philippe Depallens, Vice President and General Manager of Logitech Audio. “This exceptional speaker was designed from the ground up to provide an immersive experience whether you are streaming from your computer, smartphone or tablet.”
Both the CRAFT Keyboard and the MX Sound speakers are expected to be available this October. The Keyboard is expected to retail for $199.99 and the MX Sound is expected to be available for $99.99.
