Microsoft unveiled a brand new comfort curve keyboard on Tuesday.
The Comfort Curve Keyboard 3000 mixes a traditional straight keyboard with the curve of a split ergonomic keyboard. Microsoft’s new keyboard is aimed at people who want better comfort and posture but prefer working with a straight keyboard. “The original Comfort Curve layout was the first step in this direction,” explains Microsoft’s Dan Odell. “The new layout on the Comfort Curve Keyboard 3000 represents the next step.”
The new key layout is designed to be a better option for those who prefer straight keyboards. Microsoft says it has been improved in two ways. The QWERTY keys are uniformly sized in a similar way to a standard keyboard and the curve has been modified to be more organic. The thidrd dimension curvature increases the comfort for the user.
“This keyboard has been three years in the making,” says Odell. “I’m excited that people can finally benefit from it after all of those rounds of research and iteration.” The Comfort Curve Keyboard 3000 will be available in August for $19.95.
