Keys you can actually see

This keyboard might not be a work of art, but it's practical

OK, before you start laughing, consider how your parents might use a computer as they get older--and even yourself, for that matter. The "Vision Board II" is a keyboard that would make life substantially easier for a person whose eyesight isn't what it used to be, similar in concept to phones with large numbers.

Not only are they more legible, but Uber-Review says the 1-inch-square keys also reduce the chances of mistyping because they're nearly twice the size of normal ones. The "F" keys are designed in a distinctive oval shape to make it easier to position your hands correctly. With devices and keyboards getting smaller all the time, it's nice to see one piece of equipment that opts for practicality, not fashion.
