The "lotus" style keyboard (as in the flower, not the software company) has users tilt an analog stick in one of eight directions to highlight a cluster of letters, then hit a colored button to specify the letter. It's a weird-looking solution to the problem of on-screen typing, but a Valve staffer told Kotaku that when people try it, "they're almost instantly faster than [when using] QWERTY."

Are these people that rarely use a keyboard? If you use a keyboard for even an hour every day for 2-3 years, you can at the very least type at 50 WPM or something definitely faster, unless they've practiced with the system.

Spoiler!
