Natural Keyboard Grown from a Laser Cutter

by Lambert Varias

We’ve seen wooden computer peripherals before, but designer and programmer Robbie Tilton took it a step further. Turned off by the synthetic, “visually bland and tactilely inept” design of some gadgets, Tilton made a keyboard that looks like it sprung out from the ground.

Tilton based his project on Apple’s wireless keyboard. He probably chose it in keeping with his nature theme amirite? He used a laser cutter to make the wooden frame and then bent the wood to assume the shape of the original keyboard. I’m not sure if the keys are all wood or if the Apple keys are sandwiched in between thin pieces of wood. Ironically, Tilton wasn’t able to find real moss, so he had to settle for imitation moss to cover the keyboard.

The irony of the moss aside, I think the keyboard looks good. I think a mouse with a soft grassy surface would be nice as well. I don’t want it to be made from a “natural” mouse though.
