Microsoft's New Sculpt Ergonomic Keyboard and Mouse Are Kind of Hot

Microsoft has a new keyboard and mouse combo out called the Sculpt Ergonomic Desktop, and they don’t look like your average devices. Instead of a flat keyboard, the device is split into two sections, giving users a domed and angled typing surface.

The idea is that the user’s wrists and forearms will be more relaxed and resist pronation; the curvature of the keyboard is designed to follow the curve of your fingertips for a more “natural feel” when typing.

The mouse has the same concept in mind, and the circular device had the right and left buttons slid just a bit to the right, with a large contoured thumb rest; there’s also a Windows button that will pull up the Windows 8 Start Screen with one click and a four-way scroll wheel.

The keyboard has a cushioned palm rest for comfort, split space bar so you can click it with either thumb, and there’s a separate number pad, to boot.

The kit looks like a nice set of input devices, and it will run you $129.99.
