Early draft of the Penclic Mini Keyboard C2 BEPO


The evolution of the keyboards started with the type writer, the layout was dictated by the possibility of the legs with letters not interconnecting. Therefore the most used letters are placed far away for each other. This is obviously not optimal for the most efficient and less strain for the user.

In the resent years there have been a couple of different developments to optimise the layout for example with the community of DWORAK. Fantastic developments but as different languages has different needs, the French layout community have developed BÉPO. It is adapted for the French languages and especially important is that the accent is already included é. This is one of the most frequently used letters in the French written language. And in line with Penclic whole product range, it is all about give the user an greater experience in front of the computer, optimising the way of working for a healthier life.

Penclics Mini Keyboard has low Quite-touch keys are of normal size and providing good tactile feeling which results in a quick response, giving the user a comfortable and easy to use experience.

The relaxing, neutral colours make the mini keyboard as easy on the eyes as on your fingertips. The keyboard gives off minimal reflection, and usually matches the colour on your computer screen. This is a visual ergonomic improvement, implemented to enhance user experience.
