Logitech introduces Crayon and Rugged Combo 2 for the iPad

Logitech (www.logitech.com) has announced the Logitech Crayon and Logitech Rugged Combo 2 for the new 9.7-inch iPad. Specifically designed for the classroom, it takes advantage of new technology in the Apple tablet and provides a solution for education so students can do even more including handwrite notes, illustrate projects and draw diagrams.

Logitech Crayon is the first digital pencil designed for the new iPad and leverages technology found in the Apple Pencil to deliver sub-pixel precision, low latency and support for tilt in a design that's perfect for students, according to Michele Hermann, vice president of mobility at Logitech. It works with a variety of apps and software already used in classrooms, including Apple’s updated Pages, Numbers, and Keynote, Microsoft Office and Explain Everything, giving students the ability to take handwritten notes, add sketches, diagrams and illustrations to projects, markup PDFs and more.

Designed for the classroom, the Logitech Crayon connects to the new iPad instantly without pairing and its easy-to-grip flat surface prevents rolling, reducing the potential for accidental drops. With an 8-hour battery life, the Logitech Crayon can go a full school day before it requires charging. The smart tip of the digital pencil is pry-resistant and only removable with a special tool, while the rubber cap is tethered, so it can’t be easily misplaced.

Designed with input from educators, administrators and IT specialists, the updated Rugged Combo 2 case and keyboard combo is designed to take on daily wear and tear inside K-12 classrooms. To ensure the highest levels of protection and durability, the Rugged Combo 2 protects iPad from bumps, scratches and drops of up to four feet, says Hermann.

The detachable keyboard has been redesigned so the keycaps are pry-resistant in order to prevent keys from needing to be replaced. The thoughtful secure-sealed design is spill-resistant and the keys are silent so as not to distract surrounding students from their work.

Powered by iPad, teachers never have to worry about charging the keyboard. It also pairs automatically with a single click and offers a row of short-cut keys, allowing students to access commonly used functions like volume, media controls and print screen.

The keyboard physically connects to the Rugged Combo 2 case using a proprietary connector to deliver a secure keyboard connection, making iPad an approved device for testing.

The Rugged Combo 2 case offers an adjustable kickstand for a wide range of viewing angles and four use modes: Typing mode, for taking notes; Viewing mode, to watch educational apps and videos; Notebook mode, for writing with digital pencils and reading; and Travel mode, which protects the iPad screen during transport. It also features a pencil holder that’s a perfect fit for Logitech Crayon or Apple Pencil, so students always have the tools they need at hand.

The Logitech Crayon and Rugged Combo 2 will be available for purchase to schools and school districts in the U.S. beginning this summer from apple.com/education/purchasing/. Logitech Crayon will be available for a suggested retail price of $49.99 and the Rugged Combo 2 will be available for a suggested retail price of $99.99.
