The Microsoft Ergonomic Keyboard features a split-key design that allows you to rest your hands at a more natural angle than a straight keyboard. It's a wired keyboard that also has a full number pad on the side.

New for this year are dedicated keys for the native emoji picker, snipping tool, and to launch Office.

The Microsoft Ergonomic Mouse looks a lot like a wired version of the Microsoft Precision Mouse. It has a curved design and a thumb rest on the left side of the device. It also has side buttons to make navigating a PC easier.
