Type Away


For those of us increasingly using tablets for email and longer typing sessions, the new KALQ keyboard might solve all our awkward typing issues. Researchers at the University of St Andrews in Scotland developed the thumb-favoring layout, which contains all vowels on the right, and most consonants and first letters of words on the left. In studies performed, users almost doubled their typing speed using the KALQ layout compared with the more common QWERTY keyboard.
