The Sonder uses touchscreen keys that can quickly change functions to suit the task at hand

Professionals who work with computers all the time have to memorize a lot of shortcuts for every program they work with. With the Sonder Keyboard, forgetting the right key combo should be tough.

On the minimalist keyboard, the function, number and letter keys are all mini E-ink displays. In an instant, from being regular keyboards, they can transform into a cheat sheet for Photoshop shortcuts. In a blink, the Sonder keyboard can be a purpose-built keyboard for Final Cut Pro.;

By using low-power E-ink, the keyboard is able to run through a built-in battery and work wirelessly via Bluetooth. The trade-off is there is no ability to change the color of the keys. Just like many premium keyboards, it also has backlighting for easy typing in the dark.
