New Standard Keyboards makes me want to gouge out my eyeballs

New Standard Keyboards makes me want to gouge out my eyeballs

So there is the QWERTY keyboard layout, that’s what most of you are using right now, and it works, I don’t really see too many problems with it, in fact I can’t even think of one thing I would change about it. Then there is the DVORAK design, its coming up, I have personally never seen a keyboard of this layout, but the newcomer is the New Standard Keyboards.

I don’t see how a keyboard I can’t even look at for more than a few seconds without experiencing partial blindness is supposed to help make things easier. Plus the layout is all messed up, sure its in alphabetical order, but that’s not the point of a keyboard.

Although I well accept that I'm only feeding the hype by posting photos, it's so nice to see an Optimus Maximus keyboard actually showing something other than dull coloured blocks on each key that I'm saying "sod it" and posting anyway. 

 

Thermaltake Soprano keyboard shiny, could match your new iMac

Thermaltake Soprano keyboard shiny, could match your new iMac

There is a model with black keys and brushed aluminum surround, so it could, kind of, match your iMac. Although the new keyboard that comes with the new iMacs could probably do a better job.

Anyways, this keyboard has a lot of ergonomic stuff in it, including curved keys so they fit to your fingers better, that’s not all that new though. It also has the scissor-foot key spring system to make it more comfortable and make the keyboard last longer.

Optimus Maximus – It’s real, and in Moscow

Optimus Maximus – It’s real, and in Moscow

Man, it seems like the people over in Moscow get everything cool before the rest of the world. I admit that might be a bit of an overstatement. In fact, I can't think of anything off the top of my head that people in Moscow have gotten before it has shown up in the US. Except for the Optimus Maximus keyboard that is.

I'll admit that I'd love to have an Optimus Maximus keyboard, but that $1,500 price tag is just a little hard to swallow. Most people tend to agree that few would drop that kind of cash on something like a keyboard. That being said, here's a keyboard that's way more expensive.

The Microsoft keyboard that spies on you

The Microsoft keyboard that spies on you

Are you a spy? If you answered yes to that question, you're a terrible spy. However, if you said no, but really meant yes, you should check out this cool keyboard.

Usually when we see keylogging hardware, it's something that you have to physically plug into someone's computer that may end up standing out. This one is built right into a Microsoft keyboard. So all you have to do is purchase said keyboard, and give it to the person you want to spy on. Who would suspect that a Microsoft keyboard would be spying on you? Wait, don't answer that.

Remington Typewriter Turned Into Steam Punk Keyboard

Remington Typewriter Turned Into Steam Punk Keyboard

I don’t know what inspires people to make these amazing contraptions, but they are always works of art. And appear to be made and/or powered primarily by the hours and hours of thoughtful labor that likely goes into these projects.

In this case, a gentleman has taken a Remington typewriter apart and made it into a keyboard. It even features the arrows, number pad, F keys, and all the other keys one is accustomed to.
