There's three targets for this project:
- People who, for whatever reason, prefer to type with one hand. This could be damage to the other hand, wanting to have a hand on a keyboard and the other on a mouse or a tablet, or any one of a number of other reasons.
- The ability to move around while typing. Even on a well designed walking workstation there's some bounce as you walk. Keeping the controller on you means that body movement doesn't effect the relationship between hand and keyboard.
- Mobile typing. Smaller tablets and smart phones don't have room for a full sized qwerty keyboard and while portable keyboards exist most are a pain to use unless you have a decent desktop sized surface.
This keyboard only requires one hand to use properly, stays on you while moving and will eventually be wireless and can hopefully fit in a cargo pocket for easy transport.
