Article of www.yankodesign.com: Created as a part of Render Weekly’s design challenge, the Ghost Keyboard is interesting for its use, or rather overuse of minimalism (to the extent of possibly being counter-intuitive).

Wellens’ Ghost keyboard doesn’t traditionally have the markings on the top of each key, as is expected, but rather takes on a different approach, with markings etched onto the front surface of the keys. Its stealthy appeal comes from the removal of a rather elemental detail, but the result is something incredibly interesting.

My only concern about lusting over this beautiful piece of hardware? I haven’t memorized which punctuation mark sits over which number key.
