Microsoft Develops An Adaptive Keyboard With Touchscreen Display

14 Nov

Professionals often feel cramped while working on a standard computer keyboard, as they have to deal with set keys that allow little or no liberty to adapt to new assignments. Addressing the issue, researchers at Microsoft have developed a prototype keyboard that adjusts according to the context of the task. Integrating a number of keys with display capability, together with a long touchscreen display on top of regular keys, the adaptive keyboard gives more control by changing some keys, when dealing with specific applications. Working like a file browser, the touchscreen display presents ambient information like alerts, so the user could focus on more than one task simultaneously to enhance work efficiency.
