Yeah, I thought about titling this post “Krazy keyboards” but just couldn’t do it. I hate reading those deliberate misspellings other places and didn’t want to subject any more on the world than necessary.

At any rate here’s a CIO.com (via PC World) slideshow of 14 very crazy keyboards.

If aliens (other than Klingons) used computers, they’d probably gravitate toward the $399 OrbiTouch Keyless Ergonomic Keyboard—if only to impress us: “God, they must be an advanced society if they’ve figured out how to type on that thing.” But maybe it really is ergonomic. After all, when was the last time you saw an alien life form wearing braces on its wrists?
