nxt / input devices

nxt
nxt

„nxt“ includes 5 input devices for the PC (keyboard, numeric keyboard, graphic tablet, remote, optionkeys). Because of their modular structure „nxt“ products can be arranged individually and ergonomicly. One of the innovative details of „nxt“ is its numeric keyboard which allows a usage for left- and right-handed people. By mirroring the keylayout right-handed people can use the keyboard with the left hand after a short time with nearly the same speed. Mirroring the keys allowes the same input-pattern - only mirrored, which our brain is capable to adapt to fastly. Ergonomical damage can be avoided this way by simply switching the input hand.
