    Saw this on a german website and thought I'd give it a try.
    It's really ickle and works pretty well - the circle in the top let hand corner is a mouse pad - so extra living room friendly...

    Unfortunalty it has a German (QWERTZ) layout, and is IR rather than RF.
    It can be made QWERTY by poping the tops off the keys and swapping round then running a key mapping util - not a bad little find I thought...
    and yes I did ask if they did a QWERTY version - but of course was the reply; you'd need to order 500 though :eek:

    So how much did it cost and where from?

    I saw something similar at my local computer fair but the mouse was a short joystick. I was certain to break it off within 5 mninutes use! That was only £15 though.

    Was it teeny?
    I know of the BTC one that Elonex ship - but this is huge (and has carry handles either side)

    Nope - I get the impression it was commisioned by iTV Media.
    They also do a neat remote that an even smaller keyboard folds out of the back......hmm I wonder if you could get the Sky+ media remote to work with a PC IR reciever (I know it's RC5 format as I've written a driver to read it before.....)

    It was very teeny! About 25 or so centimetres, certainly less than 30cm.

    The smaller version of the BTC is the BTC 9116URF. We are selling a lot of these now. Doesn't have the handles or the numeric keypad either so it is very small. RF like the 9019URF. The BTC website just shows a beige one but we only have the black version.
