PC peripherals/components manufacturer Corsair recently announced its latest wireless keyboard, the K83. Unlike your regular wireless keyboard, the K83 is made specifically for home entertainment — it’s used not just as a keyboard, it also allows users to control a range of devices in a living room setup.

As it’s designed for use in the living room, the K83 has an ergonomic form-factor as well as an intuitive key layout. The keyboard has an anodized aluminum frame, white LED backlit  keyswitches, and a multi-touch touchpad. With the touchpad, users can control a living room PC with ease without the need for a separate mouse.

The K83 also has an analog joystick near the touchpad, meaning users can also play a couple of games on the couch with the keyboard. The keyboard also has a wealth of customization options through the CORSAIR iCUE software. Through iCUE, users can create macros, remap keys, adjust the LED backlighting, and many more.
