Grippity 1 Lets You Type from Behind

One of the biggest complaints about using typewriters still remains in the 21st Century as people type with keyboards. The position of the keys make it stressful on the wrists and fingers (sometimes even the elbows, take it from me). We have seen ergonomic keyboards before, but they do not seem to hit it off with the consumers. Maybe this one will work.

And what makes Grippity 1 different from other keyboards? For one, it allows users to type from both the front and back of the device. You are supposed to hold it with both hands and type the letters from behind, press space from the front using your thumb, and scroll down the page all with your wrists and arms barely moving. And since the Grippity 1 is not wider than your body, you can rest your elbows against your torso as you type, minimizing stress on the arms. You can check out this video to find out more.

The Grippity 1 is now available for pre-orders, costing US$60 each. Do it right now and expect to have right on your doorstep by February 2011.
