France-based Orée’s first product is out, and it’s a beautiful wireless, wooden keyboard carved from a single block of walnut or maple. The laser etchings on it are customizable.
Company rep Yasunobu Takata said, ‘I have been using this piece for the past four months, and as I use it I realize that this keyboard actually grows. The color changes as I use it because of the oil from my fingers, but this doesn’t really look dirty — it really grows’.
We like the idea of having tech that ages with us. Still, we can’t help but think about tell-tale food stains for those of us with a nasty case of the munchies.
