Typing too fast is marked as cheating, what is the “supernatural power” of this keyboard?

When it comes to typing, for many people living in the Internet era, it is a daily thing like eating and drinking water. When I was a child, I played various typing games of Kingsoft Powerword in computer class (such as the thief who was caught just starting out forever). ), when I grew up, the most I heard every day was the sound of tapping the keyboard.

Although we use the keyboard to type almost every day, and many input methods now have associative functions, it is a long process to type the letters one by one in order to tap the words in our minds on the screen. .

If you want to work more efficiently, you need a faster typing speed, but no matter how hard you practice, the speed improvement is limited, or we can change our thinking and make the keyboard itself more "smart".

CharaChorder, a foreign technology company, launched a keyboard called "Charachorder Lite" in 2020. Although it looks similar to a common QWERTY keyboard, it does not need to be input in order one by one as usual, but in "chords". The way to type, press a few letters at the same time, you can output the word you want.

For example, pressing "OWDR" at the same time, CharaChorder's internal processor can automatically turn them into "WORD" and appear on the screen through machine learning.

CharaChorder officially said that this input method is several times faster than the speed on the ordinary QWERTY keyboard. Their goal is to increase the average user input speed from 40 wpm (words per minute), which is close to the average text input speed of people, to 250 wpm, which is close to the average text comprehension speed of people.

In addition to "Charachorder Lite", another product of CharaChorder, "CharaChorder", is more unique. It has a very different design from a traditional QWERTY keyboard, with spheres at both ends, with nine joysticks on each end.

Not only the appearance, but this unique keyboard is also somewhat similar to the gamepad in usage. Each joystick on it can be moved in different directions to select the keys, so that the user's hand does not even need to leave the keyboard. Just over 270 inputs were performed, and typing was possible while using other devices such as a drawing tablet.

The CEO of CharaChorder used the keyboard to even hit 500 wpm on the leaderboards of the typing challenge site Monkeytype, so fast that the site automatically flagged it as cheating.

It is worth mentioning that this "chord" input method means that there are different possible combinations. CharaChorder also allows users to customize their own chord combinations according to their input habits and specific needs.

I have to say that these two unique keyboards from CharaChorder are really creative and quite efficient from a typing demo. Of course, the premise is that you have to get used to this special typing mode.
