POS keyboard with freely-configurable keypad.

The keyboard is and remains the preferred input medium for computers, even in the age of highly modern information technology. This also applies for the electronic POS terminal. The itemized scanning of goods by optical readers using a barcode saves the effort of manually typing in product numbers and prices, yet does not eliminate the need for a keyboard. Program control and alphanumeric data input are still performed via the keyboard.
