Keyless Lifebook for those who complain too much about keyboardsby Gareth Mankoo
The Keyless Lifebook comes in at a time when design of gadgets has been put to some serious questioning. The ergonomics of a laptop is now compared to the portability of tablets and so on. What remains a fascination is the ability to touch and command. One Laura Lahti brought forth an interesting concept that showed off a basic notebook whose keyboard could be customized to suit your requirements. You can switch keys around to suit your needs or even adjust the layout of the keyboard to match your style. Additionally, you can also opt for an optical pen to carry out simple drawings.
A cool feature added into this already awesome concept keyboard is the dragging finger text input thingy. Given that there are no keys you can slide your finger across the virtual keyboard area.
