Who designed the keyboard?
May 03, 2010 8:38PM
The design for the keyboard was taken from the typewriter (as it is the predecessor for the computer). The Qwerty keyboard was designed by Christopher Sholes. It was meant to eliminate jamming.
Today however, we have an array of designs available to us. Companies have created their own design, while others even create custom keyboards to fit anyone's personal needs.
