• Wooden Keyboard For Easy Typing
  • Posted 22 months ago by staff · Art & Design · 9914 Views
  • Designed by Michael Roopenian, the Engrain Tactile keyboard is layered with sand-blasted wood grain cut to fit the keys of a keyboard. The idea of the design is to strengthen the relationship "between user and interface" says Roopenian. This is achieved by creating all of the keys from one single piece of wood, meaning that there is a certain consistency in texture across all the keys, with the grain running in the same direction. The keys which get the most use have also been carved in a slightly different way, meaning you can know if you hit the right letter without having to double check.

    • would much prefer it if it was in a wooden housing. Love for the individual keys and the continuous wood-grain effect.

    • "The keys which get the most use have also been carved in a slightly different way, meaning you can know if you hit the right letter without having to double check looking" Wouldn't you know if you hit the right letter on not, without double-checking, simply by the fact that the wrong letter showed up on the screen? The suggestion implies you'd double check the keyboard, which would result in something akin to "no i hit something bumpy... which ones are bumpy there?" which doesn't really seem helpful. Yes, the grain will aid in touch typing and making sure you're fingers are in the right place, but the suggestion about double checking makes no sense.
