The peripheral is the result of a collaboration with the country's leading Orthopedic Hospital, the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York City. Both parties designed the automated keyboard to provide consumers with "the ultimate comfort typing experience" using a patented anti-fatigue motion system. The keyboard literally studies the user's typing frequency and makes periodic, subtle changes so that hands and wrists are never in a fixed position.
"These changes in positioning promote the natural motion of your hands and wrists, providing the highest level of comfort possible," the company said in a press release. "The intuitive and beautiful design of the keyboard allows users to immediately become an expert and enjoy the ultimate level of comfort in their computing experience."
SmartFish said that a portion of the proceeds will be donated to the Hospital for its Special Surgery Rehabilitation Education Fund to help further research of technologies (www.hss.edu). To see the keyboard in action, check out the YouTube demonstration pasted below. The "2011 Best of Innovations Honoree" will also be on display at CES 2011 this week.
