The Natural Keyboard isn't the first computer peripheral to be made out of wood, but it is perhaps the first to ever incorporate moss into its design. Similar to the Oree Board, the Natural Keyboard is set apart thanks to its green fuzzy body. Melding the manmade technological age with nature, this accessory will be appreciated by many.

Designed by Robbie Tilton in collaboration with Danny Rozin for Digital Fabrication, the Natural Keyboard helps to reconnect modern society with nature. Tilton reveals, "I was passionate about creating this because I feel the aesthetic of modern technological objects are cold and lifeless," noting that "we are constantly removing ourselves from nature." Visually and tactile-y stimulating, the Natural Keyboard is beneficial on more than one level. Stats for Mossy Computer Peripherals Trending: Older & Buzzing
