There are two dots that reside on a standard keyboard that help you position your hands for touch typing.  But that hardly forms a significant, ever lasting bond.

The Engrain Tactile Keyboard is cut from slabs of wood and is designed to enhance our connection with the keyboard, as we type, through tactile sense.  Each key has its own unique grain and perhaps the hope is that over time the user will become more attached to the hardware and in turn write, or the very least type with more intuition and emotion – something like that.

Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
