Exponent Keyboard

The Exponent Keyboard is a tool that enables women to build more assertive vocabularies to express themselves more forcefully in male-dominated environments.

The design reimagines the conventional keyboard, shrinking it and opening up space for the introduction of keys specifically for power verbs. Making use of female cognitive advantages and finer motor skills, this new keyboard contains keys for specific words, including claim, disagree, and insist. The keyboard tracks keystrokes and uses its own server to analyse usage and generate missing power verbs from individual lexicons. By forming more confident and assertive vocabularies, the Exponent Keyboard empowers female communication in the workplace.
