When you have been using a computer for over 20 years, you basically know that without a keyboard, you won’t get much done. It has become an extension of your mind and body to some extent. It’s an effortless interaction between a human and a machine, and it’s only getting more intuitive with time. As technology advances, we will see other ways to interact with our computers and Kinect certainly hints of that. If we can dream it, we can achieve it is a mindset that has been around for years and years.
However, did you know you only need 4 keys on your keyboard? If you listen to the guy who developed the Kee4, you’ll see the reason why. Citta Consulting Inc. has developed a keyboard consisting of only four keys that they hope to market. But don’t you worry, you will be able to type any character that your current keyboard is able to.
It’s a different way of working it though, that’s for sure. With a certain number of key strokes (as I understand it), you gain access to different characters. With a bit of training, it’s as easy as 1, 2, 3 they say. And on top of that, you will have even more effortless interaction with the computer by doing it this way. So what do you think? Will you go running to the store now to get the Kee4 to enable yourself to use only one hand to type? I guess in these times when 140 characters are all we need to communicate (Twitter), it might actually be a great idea. Or? For more information, please check out Kee4’s official website.
