Of course one-handed keyboards exist. Sure, it's not a peripheral you'd give much thought to (if ever), but circumstances could necessitate the need for a typing device you can use with a single limb. Maltron is one such provider and its range of Single Hand keyboards look as futuristic as they do retro.

Depending on how much you like your hobbies, you'll be prepared to spend a good deal of cash on them. Think you'll like flying drones? $2000 for a DJI Phantom 3 Professional and you're set. Think you'll like snapping photos? Prepare to drop a couple of grand on a good DSLR or mirrorless camera and a couple of grand more on lenses. In that context, Razer's pro-grade podcasting and Twitch streaming mic seems affordable. At $399, it's pricy, but you get what you pay for.

About a year ago, I set out to find a keyboard that made using my desktop PC tolerable in the living room. I found the Logitech K400.

It's... different. Not better. Not worse.

"This is stupid," I try to tell myself. "Weren't music games just a fad?" For one long minute, I struggle to hit a single note on my plastic axe, as game developers and PR people fire eye-daggers into the back of my head. But then, all of a sudden, it clicks. I'm strumming up a storm. I'm playing the new Guitar Hero — and it's surprisingly awesome.

Video game consoles are amazing. Ever since I cracked into my first NES 20+ years ago, they continued their steady progression of awesome. Yeah, there have been a few hiccups along the way (does anyone remember 3DO Interactive Multiplayer?), but overall every iteration was an improvement.

Sometimes the integrated inputs on your Chromebook just simply aren't good enough (looking at you, Chromebook 11 trackpad). But the OS is still new enough that not many major manufacturers directly support it. Sure, Chrome OS is supposed to be plug-and-play compatible with any USB HID peripheral, but this nest of un-pairable wireless mice on my desk suggest otherwise.
