Fujitsu reveals Mac-specific Happy Hacking keyboard

Happy Hacking Lite 2 Mac

Fujitsu on Thursday released the Happy Hacking Lite 2 for Mac, the latest version of its well-known hobbyist's keyboard. The input device is only half the size of normal keyboards but still includes the essential Command and Option keys specific to the Mac as well as a set of arrow keys. The diminutive stature makes it an ideal fit for a Mac mini, Fujitsu says. Its enhusiast roots are also reflected in software drivers that allow owners to visually reassign keys by dragging and dropping functions over the keyboard. A two-port USB 1.1 hub is built in for attaching a mouse or other low-power peripherals.

The keyboard works with any USB-equipped Mac and launches today in Japan for $52 with either English or Japanese Kana characters. A North American launch is certain given the popularity of earlier Happy Hacking boards with Western buyers, according to Fujitsu.

    wireless?

    like many people, my mini is a media box connected to the my big tv... i need a small keyboard as a kind of uber remote. for that, this keyboard would be fine, but needs to be wireless and needs to have a mouse equiv. built-in (like a trackpad or ball).
