The Shortcut-S is an entire keyboard of buttons that will make your life easier

Shortcut-S
Once you’ve become more proficient with using keyboard shortcuts, it’s painful to watch others trudge along without them. If they’re a friend, it’s your duty to make their lives easier by teaching them the simple way of doing things. Should it be a family member, you might as well soak up the praise for what they will likely view as technological genius (seriously, you’d think everyone would at least know copy and paste by now).

If you work with programs such as Photoshop or  video editing software, you know fully well that shortcuts are your friend. Even with their aid, it’s sometimes difficult to get things done correctly. If you’re also not very good with remembering which is which, then you can create a lot of really terrible problems for yourself. The Shortcut-S Keyboard may look overwhelming, but would make the use of shortcuts on a regular keyboard look like taking the long way around.

This is a 319-key keyboard that will put every shortcut you could imagine in your field of vision. They’re color coded for different functions, and have icons that will be easy to recognize for those who often use Photoshop. There will be options for other program overlays in the future, but Photoshop is the only one available currently. It’s a bit large, but is also very thin, meaning it can still fit into your bag though it might jut out a bit. This will cost you anywhere from $89-99, and is currently a crowdfunding project.

Is it just me, or does this look like it’s going to create situations of sitting staring at the keyboard looking for the button you need, and previously knew the keyboard shortcut for?

“(seriously, you’d think everyone would at least know copy and paste by now)” So true. It would be really awesome if you put a picture of the actual keyboard so we can see all the shortcuts :)
