Engrain Tactile Keyboard: Who WOODn’t Want One?

This might just be the most beautiful keyboard I’ve ever laid eyes on. Each key cap on this modified Apple keyboard is cut from sandblasted lumber, providing a ridged, tactile feel under fingertips.

The Engrain tactile keyboard was designed and created by Pratt design student Michael Roopenian in order to provide a more natural connection between users with their interfaces. He actually played with other surfaces including stone, sand and some sort of fuzz, but ultimately settled on wood key caps. I have to say he made the right choice.

Assuming that there aren’t any splintery bits on the keys and they’re not too rough, I could totally see myself using one of these. Michael, you should start producing these – I bet you’d sell at least a handful.
