Wrist pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, and clutter. These are problems creators, gamers, office workers suffer from by using the conventional keyboard design. Everyone has different hand sizes and different shoulder widths. I created a keyboard that splits in half magnetically to let the user decide what is the most comfortable length and angle for themselves. The joystick in the thumb area lets the user create macros for their programs, and acts like a normal joystick for games. The magnetic accessories declutter and improve users' workflow: drawing tablet, audio DAC, num pad, etc.
