As a matter of fact, people nowadays can easily spend >10 hours a day in front of a computer; wiggling the mouse, click and clacking the keyboard, those things are just inseparable part of our modern life.
HID such as keyboard has simply become an integral part of the society and also our primary window to the digital world. Only little we realize that the device that we rigorously use daily hasn’t changed much, remains ‘dumb’ as it was first invented. With more and more freaking-tasks often need to be handled simultaneously, we still rely heavily on our lazy-brain telling our hand to type here & there. We often end up inputting the same damn-password so many times because most of those safe-secure password keeper are just too complicated to startup. No matter what we are doing, what’s happening in the surrounding, how late you are staying up the night, our keyboard remains the way it always is, doesn’t help a thing and I’M GETTING SICK OF IT!
