Graphic designers and illustrators will love the freedom that the E-inkey Keyboard affords. This is a concept computer peripheral that changes its look and function in order to help you accomplish a variety of word processing and image-editing tasks.

Instead of labeling an assortment of different functions on each of the keys and requiring the use of Command or Fn buttons to activate them, this design by Aleksander Suhih and Maxim Mezentsev has a choice of four separate operating modes. When using Adobe Illustrator, the E-inkey Keyboard appears with that program's icons. When you're on Photoshop, the e-ink symbols have altered to suit it. In Microsoft Office mode, the device gives you another full set of one-click features. This invention lets you execute a vast number of tasks as shortcuts.
