Check Out the Fast Finger Keyboard ASAP, THX

Because typing the letters “ l, o, l” in rapid succession is apparently too draining for some folks, a Fast Finger keyboard has been released, relegating one of the web’s most popular abbreviations, “lol,” to the F10 slot on the keyboard.

As reported by Kotaku, the Fast Finger keyboard comes with two button configurations, an alphabetical setup for children or those who aren’t familiar with the second option: the standard QWERTY setup. When using the QWERTY setup, the F1-F-12 keys become one-press hotkeys for some of instant messaging’s most widely used abbreviations: TTYL, L8R, THX, and so on.

It’s a nice convenience for those who aren’t very comfortable with their typing speed, but for those like me, I think it would actually take more time to look up at the row of F keys to find which button to press rather than just typing each abbreviation as normal.

Is that just me? Do you all see a need for a keyboard like this? If you do, you can pick one up on Amazon for around $20.
