About

Since 2012, we have been creating keyboards that integrate gaming with typing experience. According to statistics, 69.27% of keyboards require using the left hand for typing while operating the mouse with the right. What we need is a keyboard, and not a typewriter with circuit. TYPI is the perfect keyboard for professional writers, coders and all digital professionals—improving efficiency, allowing users to type comfortably and healthily,, working perfectly with your mouse, and generally promoting a more intuitive and faster typing output with a fraction of the effort.

Features

1. Top Comfort Meets Ultimate Efficiency

We designed the TYPI Keyboard eyeing two main concerns: to make it perfectly comfortable for your hands and more intuitive for a constant and more productive use while also making it super-efficient to let you go on typing and working while not being detained by pain and discomfort.

Plus, the way we redesigned the conventional keyboard means one very important thing: every key that you need to use is far easier to reach, which, when you consider how many hours you spend per day on your computer, truly makes a difference

2. More Reasonable Use of Table Space

Usually a square-shaped object makes more efficient us of space. TYPI keyboard avoids taking too much horizontal space which full-size keyboard usually does, and it covers enough function keys that overly short-sized keyboard does not have. Apart from perfect key organization, TYPI is shaped in golden ratio to add more delicacy to your desk.

3. TYPI Keyboard was Designed with Three Criteria in Mind:

A. Respect for user habit, spare of cost in learning new keyboard and avoidance of wrong touch of keys by mistake.

B. Compact design without complex and meaningless functions such as key color lights or complicated programming. Key Layout of TYPI V.S. Key Layout of traditional keyboard。

C.Consideration of scenario for each key to reduce finger moving distance and improve typing experience.

Each Key Deserves Careful Consideration

In all keyboards, the direction keys in are on the right?. Apparently, this is due to habit. rather than convenience. Practice has proven that it is more convenient to control the direction keys with the left hand because it reduces the distance moved by our hands. In addition, you will quickly adapt to the new keys

The design of two backspace keys is representative of the TYPI design philosophy. to develop an efficient typing device and lower users cost of learning. Therefore, we preserve the previous backspace key to respect user habit. And you will quickly love the new backspace keys.

Most computer users are disturbed by the awkward hand position required by the windows combination keys. In the new keyboard, you can easily use some frequently- used keys without worrying about inadvertent presses. We also created WINDOWS LOCK to avoid such presses.

You may not be used to the function keys because they are inconvenient and not easily remembered. By using our function keys and matrix -arranged F function zone, you can use the usual functions by one hand.

Calculator can be initiated with a single press, and there is a double-zero key for users’ choice . Find your desktop calculator a new home.

Furthermore, unlike many other keyboard , the TYPI keyboard is equipped with volume keys.

We designed two blind-spot key caps R and D for gamers to easily switch and locate operation .keys. The R in QWER is exclusively for the MOBA games and the D in WASD is exclusively for the FPS games. Gamers cannot make accidental presses in utilizing special skills in a game.

Efficiency-Focused Key Innovation

When developing the perfect keyboard for the demanding requirements of modern-day users like you, we also felt that there were some keys missing in conventional keyboards that the TYPI Keyboard should have in order to improve efficiency and user experience convenience, TYPI does not require any other complex add-ons to achieve this. “TYPI,type easy,” is more than a slogan. so we introduced the following special keys for frequently used functions:

WINDOWS+D to minimize any folder, program or document and instantly display the desktop

CTRL+SHIFT+ESC to have a direct access to the task manager

WINDOWS+E to instantly open “My Computer” and have access to the file explorer in one second

WINDOWS+L Is there also a single key to lock screen? Yes, we protect your privacy.

Features

Perfection is achieved through persistence ; therefore, we are rigorous towards every detail in our design.

Company Profile

What can one achieve in 6 years? For Jonathan, he created TYPI in 6years. Jonathan, the founder of TYPI , is an interaction design engineer who created the classic VILIV UMPC interactive interface and also a passionate electronic sports fan. He constantly takes pain in switching from ergonomic keyboard for work and mechanical keyboard for game. In a conventional keyboard, the organization of keys is somewhat unreasonable and ergonomic keyboard is unpleasantly complex to use. Therefore, he wanted to create a keyboard that can work perfect for both work and game situations. His idea was supported by most of his friends and after revision for 27 times he finally launched TYPI 1.0 on March 22nd, 2012. This product was once halted because Jonathan couldn’t convince himself to deliver to the market a product with ambiguous positioning. Until June 8th,2016, Jonathan met HCI engineer Papoos from MTI who has insights into keyboard using habits for different users. They shared common grounds on this matter. Papoos believed that they should not work towards ergonomic keyboard, because our goal is to create a keyboard not a typewriter. So the design should be based on the relation between keyboard and mouse as well as keyboard and monitor. Jonathan reorganized every key in conventional keyboard according to using frequency, user habits and situations. As big supporters of the minimalist philosophy, they optimized the function and structure of keyboard and deleted some irrelevant functions. After continuous experiments, revision, overturn and rebuild for almost 11 months, they finally presented to you the brand new TYPI. It’s been 79 months, thank you for waiting.
