This clever keyboard allows users to create a custom typeface that looks like personalized handwriting. Called the 'Lazy Pen,' the keyboard system tracks wrist movement while typing that is then visualized in the slant, shape and size of the cursive letters on the screen.

The keyboard extension has two plastic bands on which to rest your wrists while typing. They move side to side and up and down in order to modulate your "writing" and create unique custom typeface. As wrists raise or shift, a software system translates the movements into variations in font.

As modernity has brought a lack of personalization, Nicholas Nahornyj aims to bring a little bit back with nostalgic handwritten letters that can be created while using the comfort and ease of modern technology.
