New Keyboard Design Promises To Waste Countless Hours of Your Time

A true gentleman – a man who respects the finer things – realizes the value of slowing it down. Taking time out. Maybe have the manservant fix a beverage. Maybe take the Segway out to the patio. Maybe type an email. Maybe type it slowly.

For this gentleman, designer Erik Campbell has developed a keyboard.

What Campbell has designed is a jellyfish new take on the concept of the ‘chorded’ keyboard – chorded referring to music. Like you strum guitar strings in concert with each other, so too do you press the five buttons on Campbell’s keyboard to produce different characters.

Frankly, I found 150 words per minute atrociously taxing on the wrist. Why, with this sexy number, I’ll have myself down to 10 in no time.

It’s not a race, guys.

If you’re still confused, here’s a video on the concept of chorded keyboards.
