At first glace this appeared to be one of those keyboards designed for kids so they can have a grand ol' time smashing the keys, but after further investigation, this keyboard appears to be for adults and has a new layout. It's the same 53-key keyboard that showed up earlier this year, but apparently the manufacturing company, New Standard Keyboards, will be introducing this at CES 2006. Looks like this keyboard could be faster than the standard QWERTY board and has enough colors to feed a horse feed a horse a rainbow. The inventor is an electrical engineer with degrees in psychology and experience with industrial psychology and ergonomics, so he has to be smart. We will keep you up to date from CES 2006.
