Some of the designs that people have invented for keyboards are beyond me but they are actually really cool. I wish I had the imagination that some of these people had, don’t you? We’d both probably be rich right now instead of at the computer typing and reading!
Here are my top 10 coolest keyboards in no specific order:
Virtual Laser Keyboard
While this might not be the coolest, I think personally think it is pretty cool. This projection keyboard is simply a keyboard created by a laser. The laser shines the keyboard onto a flat, smooth surface so that it is illuminated and is able to detect your finger movements in order to comprehend what you are typing.
See it in action!
Keyboard that Rolls Up!
Yes, you read that right! This one is a nifty 111-Key LED design flexible keyboard that has the capability of rolling up and is a fully functional standard QWERTY keyboard design. Very flexible, still durable, and able to travel with you in a matter of seconds.
Saitek PC Gamer’s Keyboard
Addicted to gaming? Never fret, we are covering you too in the top 10 coolest keyboards. This sweet keyboard is jam-packed full of function keys, soft and comfortable rests for your wrists, and awesome blue LED backlighting. It’s also got 27 programmable macro-commands through the command pad. It’s got a hefty and loud click reminiscent of the older, better built keyboards.
Luxeed Dynamic Pixel LED Keyboard
Pretty, right? This Luxeed U5 programmable keyboard comes equipped with illuminated keys that you can program at your own desired frequency and color in which the keys will light up. Pretty neat, right? Sure, as long as you keep your kids away from it!
MyKeyo Organizer Keyboard
This is a pretty neat keyboard since it is an organizer too! It is a fully functional keyboard that has all the standard features as any other keyboard yet it has a flip top that allows you to store small supplies and personal items in its internal storage space.
This one has always looked really crazy to me but it is definitely among the top 10 coolest keyboards. It was ultimately designed for those lacking full movement of their hands or fingers because you just slide the two domes into one of the eight positions that have been created. The sliding of the domes create the numbers and letters in which you are typing. Using the orbiTouch allows you to have the functionality of the keyboard and mouse all in one.
Here’s a short video to demonstrate it.
SafeType Ergonomic Keyboard
This keyboard has been specially designed to be ergonomically correct. It supposedly provides better comfort and productivity to any typist that uses it. The way that it sits, scientists say that it allows for the wrists and hands to be in a position known as Orthopedically Neutral, which is a position that reduces tension and stress on the wrists and hands that are otherwise caused by standard keyboards.
Funny name, I know, but a cool keyboard and mouse – all in one! You can switch between using the keyboard and using the mouse effortlessly without ever moving your hands away from the keyboard. Pretty neat, right? Check out this link to see how it works! http://www.combimouse.com/
This is a very tiny keyboard. No, actually, it’s more like a keypad due to its small size. Regardless, the manufacturer of the Frogpad says that after six to ten hours of practice, you should be able to reach about 40 wpm. At least it looks cool.
The WristPC Keyboard
Yes, it’s a weird name but a sound name. This keyboard actually mounts to your wrist with a brace that straps on, which comes with the keyboard when purchased. It’s almost like having a cell phone QWERTY keypad on your wrist.
