i'm about to begin work at a new job. the shop is really chill, to
such a degree that everyone hangs out on couches and beanbag chairs

type on a laptop for longer than about 20 minutes without severe wrist
pain. this isn't usually a problem, as i have a desktop system at
home and in the lab where i've been, and work on ergonomic keyboards
(e.g., the Micro$oft Natural).
what would be ideal for me i don't think exists yet, and google isn't
helping. I would love to see a normal laptop, but with a keyboard
whose two halves could pop up in the middle, and then rotate inwards
to whatever degree the user wanted, kind of like , except built
into a laptop, and without the numerical keypad, obviously.
does such a thing exist? if not, could i build one myself somehow?
how can i get whoever makes laptops to design one? could i patent it?
(heh heh ...) whatever; i just want a laptop that I can type on ...
any tips would be appreciated.
What about using the Dvorak layout? It is reported to be great for
$ setxkbmap dvorak
