    Avast! It’s A Pirate Keyboard, Me Matey

    Real pirate ships don’t have computers onboard.  Or do they?  This customized Pirate Keyboard suggests some clues. Created by designer Bobby Baker, the clever poke at pirates (the seafaring variety, rather than the torrent-monger kind) imagines what a useful personalized keyboard for them will actually look like.  The result is this: six keys that contain all of the ASCII character set that a real pirate will need to type. There’s an exclamation point, a letter R (or as pirates would [...]
