Snail-Inspired Keyboard

By: Alex Covert (Star) Mar 31, 08

This keyboard was inspired by a snail and is based around a one-handed design (kind of strange considering snails don’t have hands at all). The concept utilizes a rotating keywheel that spins at a 5:1 ratio (this means the keywheel moves 5 times the distance of the sideways movement of the mouse). Huh? Let’s just say that a slight movement of the mouse allows you to reach a lot of the keys. This intricate design makes one-handed computing possible. The color and shell-like shape of the keywheel might resemble a snail but, the unique design might actually make typing faster.
