How it works

QWERTY was introduced on typewriters 150 years ago and never went away. It may not be perfect but it has become the standard for all devices on all platforms.

Read how Typeware supports customizable keymaps with Querty as the default. One keypress per character, based on a combination of physical keys and hand tracking with Machine Learning.

Health

A healthy foundation is needed

Repetitive strain injury is far from gone, though new names like CANS and WRULD have been introduced. Current ergonomic devices have lead only to limited improvement, as they are still a result of compromises. That’s why Typeware goes for a fully wearable solution. Read the explanation of the benefits, applying expert criteria.

Frequently Asked Questions

FAQs

How does Typeware differ from existing ergonomic keyboards?

Ergonomic keyboards offer many upgrades over the traditional keyboard: mechanical keys, split ortholinear layouts, layers, thumb clusters, and integrated mice ⁠— which improve comfort and performance, and also feature in the Typeware One. Yet even the best ergonomic keyboards to date, still bind you to the desk, heavily restrain your posture and withhold you from the vast range of natural and healthy movement.

Typeware is the world's first wearable ergonomic keyboard, bringing liberation of posture and freedom of movement on top of the best known ergonomic keyboard innovations. We believe this results in the most comprehensive ergonomic solution on the market.

When can I expect my device?

No hard date has been set but shipping is currently expected in Q4 2024. Items will be shipped in the order they are received with priority given to Early Bird Pre-orders.

Are the keyswitches customisable?

Unfortunately not right now. We would love to have customisable keyswitches, however only one mass manufactured keyswitch meets the requirements for a wearable device which needs lighter springs to feel like "normal" keys (there is more natural travel and never big arm muscles involved). That switch is the Kailh Low Profile Choc - Pro Pink (20g) Linear. In fact, we've even lowered the force further to 15g with custom springs.

Unfortunately, we haven't easily been able to get Tactile or Clicky switches with appropriately low spring forces, but this is something we are interested to develop in future and make available for upgrade.

Why not a glove?

Typeware is designed to be maximally familiar to existing keyboard users, which means tactile buttons, which currently cannot be reliably simulated with gloves. There are many additional drawbacks and limitations of glove-like input devices such as difficulty cleaning that we won't cover here.

Why has such a device not been invented before?

Though there have been previous attempts to build a wearable keyboard, they all had huge learning curves (due to quirky layouts or abnormal hand positioning or both) that prevented them from mass adoption.

Additionally 3D printing technology has only recently reached a maturity to allow for rapid functional prototype iteration. This has turned out to be indispensable for a deceptively difficult job of engineering the ergonomic correctly.

Further, Typeware has achieved several technological breakthroughs, based on advancements in sensor technology
