One minor drawback to my favorite pointing device, the Contour RollerMouse Red, is that it tends to limit your choice of keyboards. A Goldtouch, for example, works poorly with a RollerMouse due to its shape. So does a Microsoft Sculpt, or pretty much anything else with an integrated palm rest. Even plain old straight keyboards […]
It’s here. The long-anticipated Matias Ergo Pro, the fulfillment of every ergonomic dream and the highest ideal of all keyboards everywhere. Okay, maybe I exaggerate a bit. Let me just put it this way: as Alan Ladd said in a certain well-known Western, “It’s as good as any, and better than most.”
If you spend much time following ergonomics on Twitter (what, you don’t?) it’s hard to miss the presence of Penclic. This European manufacturer makes, and heavily promotes, a mouse that looks like a pen stuck to its inkwell. As you may recall, I’ve reviewed that mouse before. There’s a new version now, which purports to […]
I’m a fan of mechanical keyboards – but a frustrated fan, because to date I have not found one in an ergonomic shape I can use. That’s why I’m excited about Matias, the Canadian keyboard maker that will soon be releasing its sure-to-be-amazing Ergo Pro. Alas, when I contacted the company, I was told that […]
If you liked the Oyster mouse, you may be glad to hear that there is now an ergonomic keyboard available under the same brand. Resembling the Kinesis Freestyle in shape and functionality, the Oyster adds a few innovations of its own – and a very attractive price point.
When most people say “ergonomic keyboard,” what they’re envisioning is a Microsoft-style curved model such as the popular Natural 4000. As discussed elsewhere, the Natural 4000 has significant shortcomings such as its size and key action. Because of these I have long hoped that Microsoft would introduce a more worthy successor to the world’s most […]

The SafeType vertical ergonomic keyboard is new to my desktop, but not to my ergonomic radar screen. I’ve been watching this curious concertina-like invention for years, but up until recently my efforts toward acquiring a sample were in vain. That situation recently changed, and thus I am typing these words with my hands in the […]
Since I first reviewed the Goldtouch Go mobile ergonomic keyboard in 2012, it has been upgraded to a new version, the G02. When I requested this latest model for review, the company considerately included one of their mobile laptop stands as well. Since these accessories are marketed together, it seemed logical to review them in the same […]
Microsoft recently announced the latest addition to their lineup of computer hardware: The Sculpt Comfort Keyboard. Thanks to the efficiency of Redmond’s PR team, I had a sample in hand within a few days of requesting it. The Sculpt isn’t exactly a one-keyboard revolution in typing, but it incorporates some solid features into a comfortable […]
With a name like “Truly Ergonomic,” this keyboard won’t win any awards for modesty. Neither is it likely to win “Fastest product to market,” with initial production delayed so long that it almost became a byword for vaporware. But this extravagantly-named keyboard just might win an award for, well, ergonomics….
