There’s a $29 Keyboard That's Programmed to Only Copy and Paste

If you happen to ever discovered your self urgent the flawed button when seeking to carry out a replica and paste motion in your pc — glance no additional; I’ve the answer for you. Stack Overflow has created a macropad that used to be programmed to accomplish simply two movements: replica and paste.

Stack Overflow's The Key’s as compact as keyboards can get, so you’ll really feel assured understanding you by no means press the flawed button when you wish to have to duplicate and/paste one thing. The keypad has a C and V key related to copying and pasting whilst you want to not use a mouse or trackpad. There's additionally a 3rd button, and whilst it perhaps acts as an alternative to the Ctrl or Cmd key, Stack Overflow says all 3 buttons are programmable. In my opinion, I feel re-programming the C and V key to doing one thing that isn't copying and pasting defeats the aim of shopping for it solely, however you do you.

Stack Overflow firstly created this idea previous this 12 months as a gag for April Idiot's Day. And whilst the gag itself is moderately humorous, the corporate's weblog publish notes that folks started appearing authentic passion and have been disappointed this used to be now not a real product they may purchase.

Whilst it’s all the time nice to look corporate's flip April Idiot's Day gags into actual merchandise, this concept is not anything novel. Programmable compact keyboards were round for a short while – a snappy seek on shops together with Amazon, AliExpress, and Drop display plenty of other macropads.

However in case you truly like Stack Overflow's design, otherwise you simply need to purchase this as a gag comic story for anyone, the corporate is partnering with Drop to free up The Key. It retails for $29, and the following batch is slated to start out delivery on December 13, making this the very best stocking stuffer for your beloved.
