Okay, hardware makers, listen. I’ve been looking around for a nice ergonomic keyboard recently, and none of them seem to fit exactly what I want. Even as I type this my fingers tingle atop the old Lenovo keyboard - frustrating. So, you should make this.
- ERGONOMIC LAYOUT. In this case, the use of caps is me yelling at you. Something like the Microsoft Natural Ergonomic 4000 in shape, but without the Titanic structure.
- Comfortable. Fit yourself to my hands. Please.
- No numpad. I can’t remember the last time I used a numpad; take it off. It adds like 1/5 of the size to the keyboard for very little gain. I don’t care what you do with the PgUp/Dn/Insrt etc block, just get rid of the numpad.
- Not hideous design. The 4000 is close in all regards bar this and size. Make it all black like a Das Mechanical Keyboard I saw. No key letterings look awesome, but unfortunately the Das looks like it would tear a whole in your hands through the combination of hand cramps and the reverberation of sound.
I’m probably going to get the 4000, there aren’t really any other good options. If you know of any good alternatives, my hands can’t wait to hear about them on Twitter.
