3 Big data security analytics techniques

If we wrote stories for every concept design that crossed our desks, we wouldn't have time to bring you much else. Some designs are worth a mention, though, and this idea of a fully customisable keyboard certainly raises a few eyebrows.

The Keyless Lifebook concept, designed by American Laura Lahti, has been shortlisted from among more than 1000 concepts from a recent Dcompetition, the Fujitsu Design Award.

Talking of her design, Lahti said "the strain of typing will disappear with this ergonomic, customisable keyboard.

"To customise [the keyboard], simply hit the 'arrange' button to move the button placement on your slideboard for a more comfortable arrangement."
