A company called 'Emojiworks' have released an 'emoji keyboard' for your desktop computer.

Austin-based company 'Emojiworks' has built an emoji keyboard that adds emojis to the functions of a traditional keyboard.

There have been a number of other attempts to create an easy emoji experience for desktop. YouTuber Tom Scott from London created a giant keyboard which featured over 1,000 buttons, calling it the "most ridiculous" thing he'd ever made. Another company successfully funded the launch of emoji software with accompanying silicon keyboard cover on Kickstarter, and are now selling the product on Amazon.

However, 'Emojiworks' are the first to bring out a full, physical, wireless keyboard. Each key features up to three emoji and it promises to increase your 'emoji typing speed' by up to ten times that of your friends.

The company are taking pre-orders on their website and they come in three different options depending on your level of emoji addiction. The basic model comes with 47 emoji for $79.95, the Keyboard Plus 94 emoji for $89.95 and the Pro version with 120 for $99.95. Both the Plus and the Pro versions come with the ability to modify the skin tone of emoji.

keyboard even includes the most recently-released emoji from the iOS9 update - so the taco and the unicorn are safe.

The keyboard is bluetooth enabled and works with Apple and Windows desktops, laptops and tablets.
