Griffin Technology Introduces Wired Keyboard for iOS Devices

Griffin Technology introduced the Wired Keyboard for iOS Devices. Featuring the familiar layout and feel of a full-size keyboard, Griffin’s Wired Keyboard offers full iOS key functions and tactile feedback with the added advantage of a cord that makes connection quick and easy in any setting. The Wired Keyboard is offered in 30-pin or Lightning versions and is the perfect hassle-free, secure solution for students, teachers and professionals. Users simply connect the keyboard to their iPad, iPhone or iPod touch, and instantly their devices get the full-featured keyboard they crave. Created specifically with school environments in mind, the Wired Keyboard helps instructors avoid challenges that inevitably occur when pairing several iPads with several Bluetooth keyboards. Since there is never a need to change batteries, recharge the keyboard or go through a Bluetooth pairing process, teachers can focus on lessons rather than spending time troubleshooting connection issues. The one-meter cord allows users enough length to set up their workspaces comfortably and provides the security of a direct-wired connection. The Wired Keyboard is offered in both 30-pin and Lightning versions so it can be used with any iOS device.

Griffin Technology Introduced MOTO TC Rally Touch-Controlled Race Car

Griffin Technology introduced the new MOTO TC Rally touch-controlled race car. When paired with the free MOTO TC Rally app, users can drive, maneuver and race using their iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch. MOTO TC Rally, available now for $99.99, connects to iOS devices via Bluetooth Low Energy (BTLE v4.0) and features super quick maneuvering capabilities via proportional steering, impact sensors that detect bumps and crashes changing the way the car handles, a fully independent, shock-absorbing suspension, power rear-wheel drive, and ground effect lighting. Drivers can race one of two ways: 'Race the Clock' either solo or with friends to beat their best time using the included Lap Counter; or 'Bump ‘n Run,’ allowing drivers to dish out virtual damage and earn points for attacks on their opponent’s car. Attacks include reducing an opponent’s speed, tampering with a friend’s controls, and flipping their steering wheel. The more damage a car incurs, the harder it is to drive. The app also includes bonuses to repair damage, add protective armor, and much more.
