Keyboard design lacks keys


Keyboards with no physical feedback are a singular offense against nature: it’s one of those design canards that never goes away. Kong Fanwen’s No-Key Keyboard is the latest, but it does have one bonus: beauty!

How might these things be made to work? The keys could have some kind of electrical response, perhaps … but it couldn’t then go in the au naturel dishwasher for the ad, could it?

Lights, Camera, Glass…Action! [Yanko]

    It’d be awful to use something like this all the time, but if it’s just for when your in the bath, I could see that working.
