Have a look at your keyboard. The layout and key placement of the keyboard in front of you has changed very little since Christopher Sholes patented it in 1878 for use in the Remington No.1 Typewriter.
That was 137 years ago.
Two Sydney-based entrepreneurs are taking a stab at bringing keyboard design into the 21st century.
The Sonder Keyboard uses individual e-paper displays underneath each key to change the key placement based on the applications you are using. Whether you’re working in photoshop or playing a game, the Sonder Keyboard will automatically adjust and re-map to display all the popular shortcuts as new keys. Pretty cool.
The device is currently available for pre-order (and has already logged more than $30,000 in pre-sales).
