    Um, lol I'm going to leave the obvious alone and say this is actually legit for certain users who previously haven't been served by the technology, so let's just assume that this was the main motivation for creating this.

    well, I have a friend that doesn't have full use of his hands due to an
    accident.. this might enable him to do more.. you know, as you get
    older you'll learn that everybody is not like you.. they all don't have the
    same capabilities.. and that's not really funny. Keep living young 360.

    some might could use this.

    It is good to see someone has dared to challenge the fetish of the typewriter cult to meet real needs.

    amusing, but always be serious, lol

    There is a one hand keyboard called the "twiddler" http://www.handykey.com/

    This also involves key codes and finger memory.

    The inspiration for the orbi touch, I guess you've got that figured out?

    this one actually looks interesting.. I've been interested in alternative
    keyboards ever since I learned that the qwerty system was created to
    slow us down.. if they ever finish this product, I may give it a try..
