Not sure if that is needed. The patented triangular keyboard reduces
mis-typing by having unresponsive areas around each key. The same can be
achieved by having unresponsive area around rectangular keys too.
Easily done by making said rectangular keys smaller, without moving them
Of course, the keys are already very small, so this is problematic. They
could get harder to hit. But triangles have the same problem, although
they may look cooler to some.
