The first computer keyboard was an adaptation of a Remington electric typewriter in the early 1950s and was used on the UNIVAC I computer. The actual invention probably happened sometime during WW2 on either the British Colossus project or the American ENIAC project but these keyboard ideas did not get built. Colossus was connected to a Baudot teletype that the codebreaker could use to collect cypher statistics on and guide the analysis of the message with, but the teletype keyboard was not used as we would use a computer keyboard (i.e. for entering text and/or commands).
