Notebook Pc Keyboard Splits Open to Reveal 2nd Screen

 |  |  |  |  |  |  August 14, 2008


I like to think that I know a thing or two about computers. I was beginning to think I’d seen just about everything, when I came across this fascinating oddity.

Dual Screen Split Keyboard PC

What you’re looking at is a truly unique beast, the Ergonomic Dual Screen Split Keyboard Notebook Portable Personal Computer – I’ll just call it EDSSKNCPPC for short ;) The model shown is actually known as “the Executive” (because what executive wouldn’t want one of these in place of his or her Crackberry?) – and offers up a split keyboard that opens to reveal a hidden LCD touchscreen monitor.

The split keyboard design is said to provide benefit in keeping your wrists in a more neutral position, so why not take advantage of that empty space between the QWERT and the YUIOP to get some more work done? The second screen acts as an independent Windows desktop, complete with pen-based input capability.

Although the patents for the technology date all the way back to 1994 to 1997, the guys over at Ergonomic Keyboards now say “Shipping in 2008” on their website, so you’re finally in the right place at the right time. As an added bonus, the patents for these are up for sale, so if you want in on a piece of the action, you’ve got a shot.
