It鈥檚 been a hot second (read: quite a while) since we鈥檝e seen a significant update in the MacBook. Thus, they鈥檙e due for a makeover, and it looks like one of the biggest updates coming 鈥 though not this year, as the new model will be here before 2018 鈥 will be to the keyboard. We are all familiar with the most basic keyboard shortcuts, but how awesome would it be if we didn鈥檛 have to memorize any shortcuts at all?

Design company Sonder is aiming to solve that problem with their new keyboard available for preorder for $199. The keyboard uses E ink and is already set聽to play nice聽with both Macs and PCs, thanks to Bluetooth.

However, according to a post on Reddit聽by user Foxconninsider, Apple will be using Sonder鈥檚 keyboard in their MacBooks, something that was later (sort of) confirmed by a Sonder representative:

鈥淪onder is currently closing B2B procurement contracts with three 3rd party laptop companies to integrate our technology into their products鈥onder has been in discussions with Apple鈥檚 procurement board regarding Sonder鈥檚 laptop module.鈥

The keyboard can switch between languages and layouts for various computer programs, as can be seen in the video below.

At first聽MacRumorshesitated to cover the story, but Apple CEO Tim Cook鈥檚 meeting with Foxconn Innoconn to discuss the keyboard was confirmed by聽The Guardian.

Some folks are calling it the Magic Keyboard. It certainly looks magical! No matter what, it seems like the MacBook鈥檚 future keyboard is going to be聽fancy.
