We have seen unprecedented success in the realm of technology in the recent few years. With the virtual explosion of the mobile platform and inception of many other cutting-edge gadgets, the tech arena is fraught with cool-looking machines. However, at times one does feel like as if he’s living in a robotic world, surrounded with machines which are very far from nature. A new keyboard called ‘Natural Keyboard’ may be the way to resolve this.


Natural Keyboard

The ‘Natural Keyboard’ has been created by Robbie Tilton. Tilton created it as a project for his ‘Design for Digital Fabrication’ class and wanted his product to be different and close to nature. So he chose to create a keyboard made out of wood and moss.

He believes that by bringing together nature and technology, we can feel more intimate and caring about the tech products that we use. In his own words, “What if our technology lived and breathed? If it required us to water it at night in order to allow it to bloom? If it were both visually and tactilely stimulating would user interactions change and would their relationship toward the object change?”

He basically stripped an Apple keyboard down to its circuits and then used pieces of wood to work as actual keys for it. He had to undergo some problems since Apple’s keyboard is intricately designed but by making use of very thin and bendable wood pieces, he was able to shape up this keyboard beautifully.

Then he added the moss texture to go with its looks and thanks to that, the ‘Natural Keyboard’ truly looks like a stunning product. It does give birth to the idea, too, that perhaps by bringing together nature and technology, we can find a balance between staying human and using machines.
