The Dactyl keyboards are regarded as one of the most ergonomic and comfortable to use computer keyboard out there. It features a curved design which facilitates your finger movements. It is naturally tilted and split in half in order to prevent repetitive strain injuries.

At HID Technologies we want to give access to ergonomics to as many keyboard lovers as possible, so we worked hard on a new type of Dactyl: the Bastyl.
