Cool new flat buttonless keyboards and remote control
Minebea in collaboration with Professor Kazuo Kawasaki has developed Cool Leaf, the next-generation flat surface which can be used for input devices. The company exhibited a keyboard, remote control and a calculator with Cool Leaf, which is flat transparent acrylic board with no gaps between parts and no keys to show.
These devices ( QWERTY, Remote and Calcs ) are flat to the core based on a single board which leaves no spaces in between making it easier to keep the devices clean and dust free, in contrast to the traditional keyboards and remotes that have spaces between buttons which make them prone to dust.
