Working in one place with just one (desktop) computer is gradually becoming outdated. The rise of mobile devices along with the availability of Wi-Fi suggests that we increasingly operate or work in diverse locations: office, home or perhaps while taking a trip. A tablet, laptop or smartphone offers you the liberty and flexibility to work anywhere you want to. The laptop works perfectly for work that you do at home or flex places. Little wonder, portability is now the epitome of the modern society.
Introducing BakkerElkhuizen UltraBoard 940 Keyboard, a small ergonomic keyboard that fits perfectly in the modern world. This compact keyboard can be used wirelessly or with a simple USB cable. It also allows users to switch between devices at the touch of a button with little or no difficulty and ergonomically just about anywhere and anytime.

It features a lightweight laptop keystroke on account of the use of a scissors mechanism as an alternative to the traditional membrane. This provides outstanding tactile feedback.
The device works perfectly and is compatible with both Mac and Windows OS. It is possible to switch between Windows and Mac layouts with the aid of just a simple keyboard shortcut.
The device is extremely comfortable and handy, not just on account of its portable shape but also its thickness. Its compact form creates a neutral posture for the user.

First, its compact form, thanks to the absence of numeric keypads, makes it very practical for daily use as it fits quite easily in most bags and suitcases.
In addition, to prevent users from straining their wrists, the UltraBoard makes it easy to type without having to continuously lift ones arm measuring no more than 35mm, and less than 30mm at its centre.
