Vensmile K8 Windows PC Features Flexible Keyboard and Touchpad

0

It’s been a little while since I’ve been there’s been anything truely unique in the world of mini PCs so the new Vensmile K8 is a welcome addition, if a little bizarre thanks to it’s integrated flexible keyboard and touchpad.

The Vensmile K8 is a Windows 10 PC powered by the quadcore Intel X5-Z8300 chip. Inside, it features 4GB of DDR3 RAM, 64GB of eMMC storage, dual band wireless b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0.

It’s also got support for both VGA and HDMI, so you should be able to get some dual monitor action going.

However, the fact the K8 has a built-in keyboard and touchpad is the most unique feature of all. The touchpad houses all the actual components and supports all Windows 10’s gestures. The attached waterproof keyboard looks like the cheap silicone models you can pick up online for under $20. This does allow you to fold up the device into a fairly compact package to carry with you which is nice.

I haven’t personally tested the keyboard on the Vensmile K8 so I’m hoping it’s a significant improvement over the horrible experience I’ve had using flexible keyboards in the past.

Inside the box, you’ll get the Vensmile K8 Windows PC, HDMI cable, power adapter, and a user manual.
