Vent your literary frustration with this punching-bag keyboard

Sometimes, writing can be hard and when your words don't perfectly express the complex emotions that your soul is feeling, you can feel a little frustrated. In fact, if that problem continued to rage on, it might compel you to spin out some Krav Maga-style moves to smash your keyboard to pieces. Thankfully, German design studio Bless feels your pain, which is why it's designed a "workout computer" where the keyboard has been switched in favor of a series of connected punching bags. Instead of furious finger action, prospective writers are asked to bodyslam, kick or punch each letter until their work of literature has been literally metaphorically sweat onto your screen. The designers believe that by combining the sedate act of typing with something more vigorous, they've blurred the lines between work and exercise. That said, we wonder what John Steinbeck would have made of this technology, since The Grapes of Wrath may have been a lot longer in the making, but at least the author would have had rock-hard abs when he was done.
