Wacky Input Devices

ExtremeTech is currently running a report on bizarre keyboards and mice, including a keyboard that looks like it has walls and one that you wear.

There’s no doubt that the standard QWERTY keyboard could be improved upon for computer use, but with over 100 years of history backing it, there’s little doubt that these will be more than niche products (see the Dvorak keyboard’s own failure despite a superior format for an example). However, some of them may serve the purpose well for people prone to repetitive?stress injury (like typing “www.dailyping.com” too many times in a day).

I use a natural keyboard cause I have carpol tunel. I can now type for quite some time without pain in my arm. The standard, you have to stretch too many fingers. I have been typing for over 20 some years. I have tried many different types of keyboards and find the natural qwerty still an excellent choice.



What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
