    "Ever since I tried mechanical keyboards, I don't want to return to those rubber dome-style keyboards anymore. Thankfully, I found this one that features red mechanical switches. The design is a real bonus for as it is simple and can fit in my office space."


Christopher Latham Sholes patented the first practical modern typewriter in 1868? The Remington Company then began mass marketing the first typewriters starting in 1877. With the help of technology, the modern computer keyboard came to be along. This also came with the now standard QWERTY keyboard layout.

Today, computer keyboards come in all sorts of shape, size, and even with the number of keys it has. The market is so saturated with so many types of keyboards. It used to be that keyboards had very specific uses. One for gaming. One for typing or writing. These days though, keyboards serve a multi-purpose role. This is due in large part to the popularity of mechanical keyboards. These keyboards offer a much-improved experience over the common rubber dome keyboards. These types of devices even extend to a niche market. One such market is for left-handed users and typists. It used to be that these people had to deal with using keyboards for right-handed people. Nowadays though, there is plenty of choices that cater to left-handed users. Along with a layout that has its numpad shifted to the left for easier use. Soft keyboards on modern smartphones are getting better and better. Text to speech has also been getting better and more sophisticated. Despite this, the ever-reliable keyboard deck is here to stay and it won't be going anywhere any time soon.
