Looks a bit like the '3 sea shells' to me. Might take a bit of getting used to.

Like the Demolition Man reference.

CharaChorder can type individual letters, but also boasts “chorded” typing. Similar to stenography, chorded typing allows the users to input several letters at the same time and have a computer program generate a predicted word. Instead of typing h e l l o, a chorded typer mashes h, e, l, and o to produce the word. With practice, it’s much faster

We're still using the layout held over from 1870s technology.  This might end up being a thing.

I always wondered why we never had a push for the dvorak keyboard.

They'll pry my QWERTY board from my cold dead fingers the day after they take away my basic human freedoms and make me start using the metric system in my own country.
