Lavatelli offers a dedicated keyboard for emoticons
Whether in e-mails, articles, forums on the Internet, SMS or instant messaging, it is common to use graphical emoticons or typographical errors. The firm Lavatelli had the idea to create an original keyboard for fast insertion of these icons to emotion in the lyrics. Said keyboard has 16 round buttons, each displaying a specific emoticon. In other words, no need to call on the usual keyboard combination of “two points – indent – parenthesis” to view a smiley. This keyboard has a USB connection emoticons. Presented at CES 2011, but yet to be implemented; i.e. still at the concept stage.
