Did you know that the longest word that can be typed using only one row of a keyboard is TYPEWRITER? A normal keyboard is a device that uses an arrangement of keys or buttons in a typewriter style. Keyboards are used via laptops, desktops and now even on some smart phones and tablets. A backlit keyboard however, is the next step up. A backlit keyboard is a keyboard that lights up the buttons from under the keyboard, allowing the buttons to be more visible, or more dominant.

Illuminated keyboards vary on their quality, style, and features, which plays into the cost of a backlit keyboard. Many times these backlit keyboards are used in hospital settings, because they tend to be easier to clean and sterilized than a normal keyboard. This is important because a keyboard can have up to five times as many germs than a toilet seat would have. In a hospital, it is important to keep things as sanitized as possible. These are known as a medical cart keyboard. While there are rapid developments with other computer devices such as the mouse, pen devices, voice and character recognition and touch screen, the keyboard is still the most commonly used device that is inputted into computers.
