This means that each key on the keyboard can activate two functions - one once you've pushed the key down one distance, and another once you've reached the full compression of the key.

Razer Huntsman V2 Analog keyboard offers customizable dual-step actuation

Keyboard designs and layouts haven't exactly changed in the past decades but that doesn't mean there hasn't been any innovation in that space. Most of the new technologies can be found in areas you don't see, like the switches that can make or break the experience, as Apple learned the hard way. Most keyboards for gamers often boast of mechanical switches but Razer is now pushing its new Analog Optical Switch technology that promises not only longevity but also flexibility when assigning two different levels of actuation to different actions.

Apple patent reveals a keyboard that can change its display

Apple patent reveals a keyboard that can change its display

Computer keyboards haven't really changed that much over the decades. Some keys have grown additional functions and the Fn and Ctrl keys on laptops keep switching places but that standard set of keys and their arrangements are pretty much set in stone. That makes it difficult and even wasteful to have different keyboard layouts and different languages, as different models have to be made for different kinds of keyboards. Sure, you can configure a key to produce something different but what's printed on the keycap remains the same, at least until Apple makes its latest patent a reality.

Apple M1 MacBook Air gives some functions keys new duties

While the venerable keyboard itself hasn't changed much in terms of layout, the extra function keys that have been added to computer keyboards tend to move around a lot. Beyond the more standard F1 to F12 keys, additional functions, especially those on top of those F-keys, have been rather inconsistent across manufacturers and models. The latest shift comes with Apple's announcement of new Macs powered by its first M1 Apple Silicon which now ditches rarely used keys and gives them new things to do.

Chromebook Everything Button is what the Caps Lock key has become

There is one thing that has remained unchanged in computing over the decades and that is the venerable keyboard. While there have indeed been advancements in technologies, the layout of keyboards has mostly remained the same since the earliest days when they grew out of the typewriter. That also means that many of the conventions still used in keyboards today might already be outdated.
