As the folks at tech startup CharaChorder point out, we think in words, not letters … so why do we have to slowly type words out one letter at a time? That’s where their new keyboard comes in, as it uses groupings of keys to instantly generate whole words.
The device is known as the CharaChorder Lite, to differentiate it from the company’s previously released CharaChorder. Likewise designed to help users type much faster, the latter gadget is not at all keyboard-like in appearance, consisting of two joined modules covered in 3D switches.
By contrast, the CharaChorder Lite looks just like a regular keyboard, and can in fact be utilized as one – with users typing out words one letter at a time. What sets it apart from others is the fact that by pressing three or four keys simultaneously, users are able to instantly input entire commonly used words.
