    OK- has anybody tried this thing? Twiddler 2

    This looks like the smallest mouse/keyboard input I have seen-

    twiddler 2

    just curious to know -realistically- how difficult it would be to learn how to use fluently-

    THe only person I have seen successfully use a one handed keyboard had onyl one hand. A couple of people i know have tried and after a few weeks, just gave up. I guess its something you really have to get used to.

    Hi Tom,

    I own (5) of these and use them instead of regular keyboards/Mice.

    The learning curve isn't really that bad. If you can touch type you can learn to type on this and you can learn the mouse in minutes (just long enough to read the instructions)

    I got my first Twiddler almost 6 years ago and have bought several more since Chris (Owner of Handykey) came out with the PS2/USB models.

    I can type 50 words per minute on mine (but I have been using it for years). If I remember right (long time ago) it only took a couple of hours to actually learn to type on it and from their it just to practice to get faster.


    The nice thing is you have both the keyboard and mouse in your hand at the same time. It also allows you to program keyboard macros into it directly.

    I have tried dozen of other keyboards/mice and still go back to the twiddler. I can type on both Qwerty and Dvorak keyboards. I have mice, touchpads, trackballs, Gyration's Ultra (wireless keyboard/mouse), Joystick, Gamepards, etc.

    The only thing I wish for is a wireless model.

    Hope this helps,

    Angelica

    P.S. I have two hands. I write with my left and type on the twiddler with my right.

    What do you mean hand?

    I'm in California we don't use hands for driving here.
    We use our knees of course.
    This way we have our hands free for more important things like, cell phones, news papers, fast food, putting on makeup, shaving, drinking coffee.
    No one actually drives a car with their hands on the wheel while actually watching the road here.

    Who said shaving beards?

    I drive a truck it's amazing what you can see people shaving when looking down into that little red spots car.

    I'll give you a hint it's above the knees and below the waist
