A great Keyboard

I've just gotten a new keyboard at work (the Kinesis Essential Keyboard) and like it a lot. Although I'm still very slow at typing with it I am already convinced that it will make my programming fingers last longer (no more Emacs little finger problems...). The keys are much closer together than on a normal keyboard so you don't have to stretch as much. Also, the keyboard makes you use your strongest fingers - the thumbs - for frequently used keys such as space and enter. Take a look at the keyboard here.

Many thanks to Lars for buying me the keyboard. Now I can pretend to be a really hard-core programmer just like him... :-)
