There are plenty of ergonomically shaped keyboards in the market today, but if you are looking for one that is stylishly designed and has mechanical keys, well you’re in luck as there is such a device called the Keyboardio. The device was designed and created by Jesse Vincent whose name is rather prominent in the Perl community.

The Keyboardio is also a Kickstarter project that is seeking funding, so perhaps it could be worth checking out if this is what you’re after. As you can see in the video above, the Keyboardio has a rather unique shape as far as keyboards are designed, but this is meant to be an ergonomic position as it lets your wrists rest naturally, which in turn could help prevent carpal tunnel.

The keycaps have been extensively modified and will sit on top of mechanical keys, so if you love the feel and feedback from mechanical switches, then this will be of interest to you. The switches are not of the Cherry variety but are from Matias and their Quiet Pro range. It also sports a rather stylish exterior made from maple wood.

As is the case with most mechanical keyboards, the Keyboardio will not come cheap. It is priced at $299 for the standard model but if you wanted something more exclusive, there is a $999 option which is made of mahogany. If you’d like to learn more or pledge your support, hit up its Kickstarter page for the details.
