Rather than having one key per 2 characters (one regular and one
shifted), a chorded keyboard has only a few keys (for example, 7 keys)
and you input characters by pressing down several keys together.  Like
playing a chord on a musical instrument, hence the name.

I've never used one, or even seen one in the flesh, but it does seem
like a cool idea.
