iF DESIGN TALENT AWARD_01 2021

About 10% of people in the world are left-handed, and at least 30% of them use a left-handed computer mouse. However, the entertainment industry does not do enough to accommodate left-handed gamers. The layout of gaming control keys designed for the right-handed makes it impossible for left-handers to play many games, except following complex debugging. The "right-hand dance" keyboard provides two choices. The layout of the front and back keys is the opposite of a normal keyboard.

This well-thought-out design fills a clear gap in the entertainment market and is a clear benefit for left-handed gamers.
