Keyboard shortcuts — some people are absolute wizards when it comes to them, and we bow before those productivity masters. For the rest of us, it’s more like spending 30 seconds trying to remember the shortcut for resizing an image in Photoshop, the resulting in accidentally hiding everything running on our desktops. If you use Adobe programs, you know how much time shortcuts can save you. We’re all about efficiency and shortcuts, but let’s be real; #AintNobodyGotTime to remember all of them. And Jaasta understands just that.
Jaasta is a beautiful, thin wireless keyboard that has individual e-ink screens for each key. The keys change depending on what language you use or based on what application you use. For languages, it’s more self explanatory. Jaasta displays all the language’s characters. If you regularly type in a foreign language, you’re familiar with the struggles of using a standard English QWERTY keyboard and the need to memorize how to make certain accent marks or maybe even memorize where all the characters are. But Jaasta can take care of that by placing them all at your fingertips, literally.
For applications, Jaasta helps to increase your productivity. You no longer need to memorize countless shortcuts to be efficient. Jaasta can display the crop key or the color dropper key on its board and have the shortcuts built in, so all you have to do is click the one you need. The best part is when you’re using emojis, the keyboard shows you all the smileys front and center.
Jaasta even has a voice-activated virtual assistant (kind of like Siri) that can help you switch between different keyboard layouts and languages. Not only can you tell your virtual assistant, “Change to Korean,” but you can tell it to save, delete and send whatever it is you’re working on. Need to search for something? You won’t be using Ctrl + F anymore; just tell Jaasta to find it for you.
If there are specific keys you never use, change them to “.com” buttons or any shortcut you use on the regular. Jaasta’s e-ink screen lets you personalize your keyboard to get the most of every minute in your day. Not only that, but the screen uses ultra-low power, so you can type away for a whole year on a single charge.
Besides being an awesome keyboard, Jaasta comes with a 3.5-inch touchpad equipped with multi-touch navigation functions and media hot keys. Are you drinking this keyboard’s Kool-Aid yet? Then enter your email address on their website to be the first to know when they’re taking preorders. It’s time to say “Jaasta la vista” to your old keyboard and hello to awesomeness.
