smartype / Keyboard


Discipline: Product

Discipline: Product

Little has changed since the invention of the QWERTY keyboard in 1867. There is a problem with regular keyboards: users split their focus and move their eyes back and forth between the screen and the keyboard. This causes repeated typing errors, reduced typing speed, eye and neck strain and a poor overall experience. We wanted to make keyboards better, help people type better and introduce innovation into the PC peripherals market. So we designed and built the smartype keyboard.
