    Keyboards: out of ordinary

    Keyboards come in many shapes - from the simplest computer grey standard 102-key keyboard to variants that seem to come straight out of a Star Trek episode. Here are 10 most unique keyboards ever available in the market.

    The Tidy Typist
    The keyboard is hidden inside a decorative, washable tablecloth. The electronic is woven into a fabric, which finds itself between layers of water resistant felt as sandwich material. The soft felt surface makes it a pleasure for fingers to tip - a cosy keyboard.

    The Datahand
    This product is aimed for people who get pain in their hands from typing with a traditional keyboard - and that's a good thing. It still looks like a very strange keyboard. It may remind you of the movie Predator with Arnold Schwarzenegger.

    The Orbitouch
    This one could be a leftover from Area 51, or a prop from the set of any science fiction movie. Wonder how it works? Here's what the manufacturer say: The orbiTouch creates a keystroke when you slide the two domes into one of their eight respective positions. You type different characters by sliding the domes to create letters and numbers. The orbiTouch also has an integrated mouse, so moving the domes gives you full mouse and keyboard capability.


    The target group for this keyboard is of course people who have limited or no motion in their fingers or hands, and that's a very good thing - but anyway, it's a weird keyboard.

    The Twiddler 2
    It looks to be quite painful to use. According to the testimonials at their site, it will take you A Weekend to learn typing 30 words per minute, so the frogpad wins that round. The Twiddler may actually remind some of you of guitar classes if you have ever taken.

    The frogpad
    The frogpad is a tiny keyboard - or it would be more suitable to call it a keypad actually. The manufacturer say that you can get up to 40 words per minute if you practice between 6 to 10 hours with it. No idea as to why is it named as a frogpad? Maybe, due to its colour.


    Virtual Laser Keyboard
    This laser gadget projects a virtual keyboard on a table or other suitable material, and then interpret your finger movement and pass them on to your PDA or whatever you have it connected to.

    The SafeType Keyboard
    Do you understand how to use it? The idea is that your hands and arms shall be in a more relaxed position while working with the SafeType compared to a traditional keyboard. However, if you have a low tolerance for frustration (and learning to type in a new manner can be frustrating) then your best bet is to stay flat and stick with a keyboard that's a little more Common.

    3D Ergonomic Keyboard
    Getting used to this keyboard isn't something you'll do in 10 minutes or so - it will take a while for sure. But if you have medical problems with your hands, this might be a good choice since it's a very ergonomic keyboard. It looks very weird though!


    The wrist keyboard
    This one might be useful if you're in the need to type stuff while doing practical work in tough climates - but if you would wear this keyboard at the office, you might be considered a bit geeky.



    3i1 - Keyboards:out of ordinary

    Roll-up keyboard
    This keyboard has the same measurements as a standard 102-key keyboard, but there's a big difference. You can roll this one up and put it in your pocket. Nice; isn't it?
