The Curve Keyboard illuminates the keys that are compatible with the specific program one is working with, taking some of the guesswork out of remembering keyboard shortcuts.
Remembering keyboard shortcuts is a task which becomes even more tedious when considering that different computer programs require different combinations. To jog the average person's memory, Curve conveniently changes its layout based on the computer program that's currently open. This means that if a user is editing on Photoshop, the key combo that crops an image, or highlights a portion, will illuminate.
To make matters even more convenient, pressing control, alt or command will prompt the keyboard to display the available commands, eliminating the need to waste time guessing which keys will work and which won't.
