Many keyboards today offer shortcuts and customizable keys that can help speed things up when typing away on the computer. The Jaasta e-ink keyboard has symbols that change depending on how you use the keyboard.
E-ink has been embedded into the keys on the keyboard and it is through this technology that the symbols are able to change. The keys can change based on the language and the program or application that the user is using at that time. It also comes with media keys, including the typical mute, play, and volume controls so you have the capability to control your TV-connected laptop from a 33 feet wireless range. Jaasta can be configured so that keys that are used only rarely may be assigned to other outputs. The designers claim that the keyboard comes with a 12 month battery life.
You no longer need to rely on your memory to use shortcuts. You can trust your new keyboard to present the correct symbol for Photoshop, Microsoft Work, Adobe Dreamweaver or any other application for that matter. Jaasta allows you to shift between any language you’re using to any of 50 different languages instantly. The downside to this is that it can take time to memorize these new symbols and become accustomed to them.
Jaasta has also announced a “soundless mouse” that it says does not have a clicking sound when the left and right buttons are pressed. It is said to be ergonomically designed with a four-way scroll wheel, features a Superspeed USB 3.0 port for flash drive, offers up to 64 GB of internal memory, and has a battery life of two years. The Jaasta E-Ink Keyboard will soon be available through a crowdfunding campaign and is expected to sell for around $300 once it’s in production. There are still a few hurdles the company needs to cross, so don’t go throwing your keyboard in the trash just yet.
This is an amazing collectible for all the gadget lovers out there!
