A computer keyboard is a peripheral input device modeled after the typewriter keyboard which uses an arrangement of buttons or keys to act as mechanical levers or electronic switches.

1. Mechanical Keyboards

A mechanical keyboard is a keyboard built with spring activated key switches. These switches are made of several moving parts and are the most common type of keyboard available today. 

2. Membrane Keyboards

A membrane keyboard is a computer keyboard without separate keys. These keyboards are the opposite of mechanical keyboards.

3. Flexible Keyboards

Flexible keyboards are, well, flexible. These are keyboards made from soft materials like silicone that allow the keyboard to be folded or rolled into a smaller size.

4. Gaming Keyboards

A large number of users rely on their computers just to play games. Because of this, an entire segment of the computer industry is devoted to this market, and it’s no wonder that there is a specialized set of keyboards dedicated to hardcore gaming

5. Wireless Keyboards

Everything is wireless these days. Computer keyboards are no exception. Without realizing it, we are constantly exposed to wireless technology every day. This includes wireless computer keyboards that use three modern technologies to connect: infrared, 2.4 GHz Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth.
