There is no device that a human being uses to interact with a computer more powerfully than a keyboard. As every key is a vital component of the entire tool, if even a single one doesn't function, the whole process grinds to a halt. The Code Keyboard, created by Jeff Atwood and Weyman Kwong, was designed to have everything you need to achieve the graceful act of perfect typing. This version comes with Cherry Mechanical switches- with their legendary 50 million click lifespan- that are combined with backlit LED’s, so that you can easily type in the dark. Hold on, because that is only the beginning of this incredible keyboard.
Note: At check-out, you have your choice of Cherry MX Clear or Green Switches with O-rings.
The Code Keyboard is a minimalist and elegant human computer interface solution, but most people don’t see the worth in a mechanical keyboard. The simple answer is, if you're reading this, you spend a significant portion of your life at a computer. Every time you type a letter, your finger contacts a key and hits it all the way to the bottom, akin to a monkey bashing it's hand against a rock. Requiring less actuation force, mechanical keyboards utilize spring based switches that push back on your fingers every time you type a letter. This small change results in a significantly improved typing experience, and if you've never experienced mechanical joy, the Tenkeyless Code Keyboard is a great place to start.
Number pads are useful for accounting and completing massive spreadsheets, but for many typists, they remain largely unused and simply waste desk space. The Tenkeyless Code Keyboard trims the fat from the essential body, saving you time and energy by giving you one less row to pass over. If you were to add up the number of times you spend moving your hand from keyboard to mouse, you will quickly understand why a more compact keyboard just makes sense.
