Ever dream of having a wooden Bluetooth keyboard? What? You haven’t? Why not? Well, even if you haven’t, the French company Orée has thought of it. The Board 2 is a Bluetooth 3.0 keyboard that uses two AA batteries and is handcrafted from a single piece of wood so that the grain for each key matches the keyboard base perfectly. It is coated with an invisible food-safe varnish that will protect it from stains. It “works with all Mac computers and iPads. Also with any Windows device equipped with Bluetooth.” Interested? Orée sells the Board 2 for $190 each and will make one for you out of Maple or Walnut and will even do a custom engraving (up to 600 characters) for you for an additional cost of $30. They also offer some additional accessories, including a leather pouch (available in either recycled or genuine leather for an additional $50), matching wooden 2-in-1 trackpad/numerical keypad ($190 extra), and a wooden Bluetooth 4.0 dongle ($35) for PCs that do not have embedded Bluetooth. Well, at least the shipping is free.
