Motorized keyboard moves to relieve stress

Posted in Keyboards by Conner Flynn on January 7th, 2010

Generally we like our keyboards to sit still, but what if a moving keyboard meant less repetitive stress injury? That’s the idea here. This ergonomic USB keyboard from Smartfish moves slightly, just every so often, depending on your workload, which keeps your wrists from aching and helps you avoid repetitive stress injuries.

Look for it in mid-April for $150. Who knows, it may actually help for once. The two halves move apart and together and the base vibrates just a bit once or twice an hour to massage your wrist muscles. You shouldn’t even be aware of the movement.

Asus delays Eee Keyboard again, adds capacitive touchscreen

Posted in Keyboards by Conner Flynn on November 5th, 2009

Asus delays Eee Keyboard again, adds capacitive touchscreenAsus must be toying with us, but we don’t think it’s very funny. We’ve all been drooling over their entertainment-PC-in-a-keyboard with wireless HDMI for months. But where is it? They said we would see it in October, but now it’s delayed until early next year. What the holy f’ing hell? At least they’re making the 5-inch touchscreen a capacitive panel now.

Apparently the Wi-Fi/Ultra Wide Band aerial has been made into an external dongle, because the keyboard’s metallic body reduced the signal. A planned non-metallic version will still integrate the wireless receiver.
