Taking the keyboard in new directions…

Here’s this week’s entry into our unofficial edition of "What’s New
in Ergonomics".

The ErgoMotion keyboard from SmartFish doesn't look that different to some
of other ergonomically designed models out there, but upon closer review there
is one interesting feature that is very different. The keyboard is powered
to change the angle, up and down, which varies how the user from types over
time.  The keyboard also offers a pre-programmed setting to adjust its angle
and width, so you don't have to.

The idea is very similar to the lumbar supports in certain task chairs, that cycle the amount of support throughout the day.  The goal is not to expose any one body part to an awkward, static posture.

What do you think?  Has anyone tried one of these out?
