Hello. I've been reading about wearable computers on the internet for a few years now, and I've made a few attempts at building some. In my exploration, I came across a device called the "Half Keyboard."
It seems to cost about $300 and seems to be mainly built for OS's like the palm OS.
Now that I have my Z-SL-5600 running Python, though, I am thinking of a cheaper solution.
Why couldn't the Z be configured so that a person could hold it with one hand, and type with one thumb on only _half_ the keyboard? One might have to type 2 keys for each character, but it should be possible.
This might make the Z _truly_ mobile. If one must type with both hands and focus on the device, how can one do something which requires true mobility at the same time?
All I need now is a sutable text editor. I've considered many, The writer of PyPE was even nice enough to expalin to me why my trying to adapt his editor wasn't a very good choice for this application.
Does anyone know how I might make this work? Any other ideas?
