Re: tapwithus "keyboard"

Day 1.
3 hours total broken into a few sessions. I have all letters, numbers, and many symbols mostly° memorized.

°I say mostly because every so often my brain will <space> on a character and stop my flow.

I would estimate that when on a roll I'm at about 8 wpm.

tapwithus "keyboard"

Since we're seeing people getting 60+wpm we can't call it a gimmick.

Anyone played with one of these?

I don't see it replacing my F-122 any time soon, but an input for my phone it may become?

The technology has existed for some time to make roll-up musical keyboards, and now foldable phones and displays are making debuts. Should it not be possible to use the same technologies to make flexible keyboard PCBs? I just haven't found the lack of curve to be any issue. Try it before you overco...

Greetings! Just over a week ago I received a package and in that package was wcass' unique Model F compact SSK. I've been using it as my daily-driver for about a week now.

Because if your hopping an interconnect it causes latency. It should be clever enough to say , ok that app is only using 4 threads , lets keep all them threads on node0.
