LAS VEGAS--As anyone that spends 8 hours or more in front of a computer knows, a proper ergonomic peripheral set up is crucial to enjoying a comfortable work day and alleviating arthritic pain down the road. Smartfish and Hitachi Maxell have partnered up and announced what they claim to be the next generation of ergonomic peripherals, starting with the ErgoMotion keyboard--a creative input device that shifts angles to accommodate the ever-changing hand positions users experience throughout the day.

You might need some time to adjust to the ErgoMotion Keyboard's uniquely curvy design, there's no denying its ability to alleviate stress on the wrists and fingertips. Over time, the keyboard uses onboard intelligence to monitor the style and frequency of your typing and develops a system to automatically change position, preventing repetitive injury and encouraging circulation to your digits as your work.

The Smartfish ErgoMotion Keyboard will be available for purchase in March 2010 for $150. More pictures of the device after the jump.
