Produced as part of Render Weekly’s design challenge, the Ghost Keyboard is interesting because of its use, in other words overuse of minimalism (towards the extent of possibly being counter-intuitive). The laptop keyboard looks pretty standard, aside from one crucial detail… the markings around the keys. Wellens’ Ghost keyboard doesn’t typically possess the markings on top of each key, out of the box expected, but instead assumes another approach, with markings etched to the front top of the keys. Its stealthy appeal originates from removing an extremely elemental detail, but it makes sense something incredibly interesting.
The Ghost keyboard design should stimulate 1 of 2 reactions. Exhilaration or confusion. With a, the possible lack of perceivable markings can be a major deal-breaker, but to other people, who’re so confident with typing while searching in the screen they don’t require the markings (because muscle-memory is really a effective tool), the Ghost keyboard is definitely an incredibly unique and hauntingly beautiful keyboard that even includes its very own cushion-wrist-rest for that seasoned typist. My only worry about lusting over this beautiful bit of hardware? I haven’t memorized which punctuation mark sits that number key.
