Best Products: TypeMatrix Keyboard

Geekware. Do you remember seeing your first Prince tennis racket? It looked wierd, right? But, soon enough everyone had one and the entire pro tour was changed for good. We are betting the same thing will happen to keyboards.

Traditional QWERTY keyboards were designed to slow typing down so that the hands of the typewriter wouldn't jam. Not only that, but they produce heinous carpal tunnel syndrome when used alot.

This is the best keyboard we've ever used. TypeMatrix keeps the QWERTY intact but arranges the keys and the whole board for optimum ease of typing. It looks a little odd, but we have found that typing is so much easier and less painful that we have two keyboards, one for the office and one for home.

Learning to use it is slow for about one week and then you can switch type on both styles easily. Available from TypeMatrix ($99 or $75 for two). MGR
