Ergonomic Steampunk Keyboard

Ergonomic Steampunk Keyboard

Steampunk and retro futurist fabricator Datamancer has come up with yet another impressive creation. This time it’s a keyboard based on the ergonomic IBM Model M-15.

This keyboard was commissioned by a female client and has some elegant, feminine design features such as violet LEDs, an acanthus-leaf pattern etched into the brass, and a soft burgundy wrist pad that is removable for cleaning.

It also has a built-in “buttonless” touchpad mouse in the center (tap anywhere to left-click and drag, tap in the top-right corner to right-click).

This keyboard is interesting because the typing plane is actuallytipped forward rather than back. It looks odd at first, but actually makes for a very comfortable typing position.

Head over to Datamancer.net for more photos of the Ergonomic Steampunk Keyboard.
