I just got a new one handed keyboard from frogpad. I got it for two reasons:
First, I have been interested in find something better than the normal keyboard. I wanted something that would allow me to keep one hand on the keys and one on the mouse without giving up too much typing speed. I’m still learning my way around, but I think this might work. The key will be getting to a point where I can touch type on the pad. This brings me to the second reason.
Second: I broke my right wrist! Right now it is in a cast and will not really be useable for another couple of weeks. Which buys the frogpad time for me to learn. If I had both hands now it is likely that I would give up quicker. However, typing one handed on a normal keyboard is not fast.
Truth is I’m picking up the pad fairly quickly. Not touch typing, but I’ve only had it setup for an hour or so. What I’ll be interested to see is how this handles programming. All the semicolons and curly braces will be fun.
If it does work out, when I get my other hand back things will be fun: One hand on the mouse and one for the keyboard. Even better is that I got the blue tooth model so I can use it with my laptop as well.
To be clear: I am typing this on the pad. It only makes sense.
