Abstract

Actually for mechanical PC keyboards there is no way to select the power needed to push down a key in order to select a character. This will imply that the keyboard user should control his strength when typing: a strong man hand is different from a thin lady hand. Moreover thinking to little childes, this will be more impacting: little hands and fingers with different low strengths. Having a keyboard where the strength needed to hit and select a key is easily customizable would solve the problem.
