Keyboards, yet again

image As can be established with a quick search, I am somewhat obsessed with keyboards. Now I think I might just have found the ultimate one – a Unicomp Buckling Spring keyboard from With an integrate mouse, no less. The latter is somewhat clumsy and will take some adjustment, but the keyboard feels like the old IBM keyboards of the 80s and early 90s and sounds like a machine gun. Definitely not the keyboard to use when you are interviewing someone over the phone, but the precise touch and distinct sound has a good effect on reducing mistypes. It also will necessitate some exercise – I had forgotten just how long the key travel was on these babies.

Best of all – they built a Norwegian version for me at no extra charge. Highly recommended – though since the keyboard is not CE-registered, they cannot send it to Europe. Any excuse for a trip to the States…
