The Flying Bee Computer Keyboard

Never mind handwriting; these days the primary skill growing up is the ability to type away at a keyboard like a demented monkey, in the hope of one day producing that elusive Shakespeare text.

And yet few of us ever learn to type in the 'professional' manner (did anyone else pay attention at school? We didn't think so), usually relying on those two fingers to get you through the working day in front of a screen.

It's for these people that the BeeRaider keyboard has been designed. It boasts a unique key formation, featuring two 'wings' of keys (hence the name) surrounding a radial central section, which features the most commonly-used keys. The lesser-spotted keys are then placed towards the outer regions in the belief that you'll need to visit them less often. There's a fully optimised version, and also a version which retains some elements of the QWERTY layout, for those not quite ready to take the full leap into the unknown.

The BeeRaider has been designed by Ray McEnaney and you can preorder it now for $104.99 (£68) (optimised) or $112.49 (£73) (QWERTY) by visiting their website. You can also download the layout as an Android app.
