Quirky blank Qwerty keyboard goes on sale

Touch typing just got easier. Apparently.

Many distractions can occur when you’re sat at the computer and trying to concentrate. But if the keyboard’s white letters are one of them, then a solution’s now at your fingertips.

Das Keyboard Ultimate: Direct Attached Stupidity?

The Das Keyboard Ultimate features a standard keyboard layout - except none of the keys have letters printed onto them. So each key looks... well... just like the one next to it, except for some that are differently shaped.

But the manufacturer claims that there’s actually some method to the madness. For example, it’s claimed that touch typists will be able to memorise the keyboard’s layout “within a few weeks” and then touch type like a pro, without requiring any sneaky downward glances.

The Ultimate may not have any inscriptions, but it does boast gold-plated key switches to “provide a tactile and audio click that makes typing pure joy”. Yeeesss. Although claiming that text-entry could ever be pure joy is something that most data-entry clerks would probably disagree with.

Das Keyboard Ultimate has a 2m USB cable and two integrated USB ports. It’s also Windows, Mac OS X and Linux compatible.

The Qwerty, yet quirky, keyboard is available now online for $130 (£65/€95).
