Another "Best of Innovations Honoree" at this year's CES convention, Smartfish claims its new Engage keyboard is the first-ever automated plank designed to provide the ultimate comfort typing experience.
Other keyboard makers might balk at that claim, but unlike other planks, even ergonomically designed ones, the Engage sports a patented motion system that "studies your typing frequency and makes subtle, comfortable adjustments" to prevent your hands and wrists from getting stuck in a fixed position.
The idea is to get your hands moving ever-so-slightly, which Smartfish says is "crucial for increasing flexibility, circulation, and alleviating stress and pain." Is it a gimmick? According to Smartfish, the Engage was developed in collaboration with The Hospital for Special Surgery in New York City, and a portion of their proceeds get donated to the Special Surgery Rehabilitation Education Fund.
