Re: New Apple iPad Multi-Touch Keyboard

I truly hope this becomes a product, but Apple has a tendency to file for a patent, but not necessarily moving in to a full product sold to consumers. I especially hope that it'll have bluetooth support. I remember how there were many people wanted a wireless Touchstream of some sort. I would defini...

Re: Colemak: Dvorak is so last century

The lack of OS support is one of the reasons why, years ago, I decided to learn Dvorak instead of Colemak. Sure, it's not as big of a concern these days with the larger OS support, but I've been typing Dvorak for over 10 years now, and I'm quite happy with the layout.

Re: Fingerworks TouchStream LP in excellent condition

Interesting that the auction ended on the same day as Kare mentioned the relisting. Guess the original price point did work. I'm not surprised at the lowing prices. It's been 9 years since Fingerworks was sold to Apple, so the number of people who actually know what this technology is and can do is ...

Re: Kyrstellaine

I thought the Truly Ergonomic looked like it would be a better option than the TypeMatrix, but since I couldn't use a rollermouse with it because of the non pointed front end (even without wristwrest), it wasn't a real option for me. I use a Logitech Cordless Trackman Optical (recently discontinued...

Re: Kyrstellaine

I've pretty much stopped using any Fingerworks device at this point (but I still plan on putting a MacNTouch/DigiTouch into a smaller case and try to use it again). My old Touchstream ST still works, but on occasion static or something else will cause it to stop responding, or output random characte...

Re: and another Kickstarter project with promise

I bought a Leap Motion to try out and just returned it. The idea is interesting, but the current implementation needs a bit of work. Also, I think the Leap Motion would require a different UI than what's currently used. Waving one's arm and moving one's fingers, in mid-air, work better with large ge...

Re: Buying remaining devices from University of Delaware?

My guess is that the number of still working devices are going down at a steady rate. Also, the number of people willing to spend the amount of time to figure out how to get one of the devices to work (assuming they're in good condition) is going down - every day the percentage of computers that can...

Re: Summary as of April 26, 2005, Updated September 2, 2005

That was definitely an interesting read. I wished there was more to it. I didn't even realize that Elias and Westerman weren't running the company. But that makes sense since both are academics/engineers. I don't think that there was so much a gag order, than the 2 founders busy working for Apple, a...

Re: Silver TouchStream LP Dvorak an eBay

I just don't want to keep trying to find replacements for work, where I believe a unit was killed while I was gone. That really sucks about the dead keyboard. It's a shame that you can't keep personal items around, unmolested, while you aren't there. I can't see using a Truly Ergonomic, though, as ...

Re: Silver TouchStream LP Dvorak an eBay

I definitely understand the desire to move on. Back when i fully ensconced in Fingerworks keyboards (a Stealth at home, an LP at work, and a MacNTouch in my TiBook/AlBook), it was awesome. It started going down hill when I got my MacBook Pro and didn't want to dremel out the aluminum keyboard area j...

Re: Fully working FingerWorks software in a virtual machine

What I also tried with no success: Extracted all files in the Fingerworks software package, and then directed Windows Hardware recognition to the driver *.inf file (\setupfw160\Resource1\C_\dk\jusb\bin\wxp\inf\fingerworks.inf) But Windows 7 complained that this is not a 64-bit driver....

Re: Fully working FingerWorks software in a virtual machine

I have tried to get the Multitouch Utilities to work in both VMware Fusion and Windows XP Mode/VirtualPC, but neither worked correctly. It works with VirtualBox because you can explicitly go into the USB config with VirtualBox to tell it to match the Vendor ID used by the FingerWorks device. Note, t...

Re: 8 Digitouch on eBay

Weird.

"This listing was ended by the seller because the item is no longer available."

I wonder if someone offered to buy them just not through eBay.

Re: 8 Digitouch on eBay

At $800 for 8, I was sorta tempted. At $1200, not so much anymore. Interestingly, the seller says he has keyboard labels for them. I wonder if this is the guy that was originally selling the DigiTouches that were offered here a while back.

Re: Inverted scrolling

I'm surprised to hear this question coming from you -- I would imagine it's a fairly simple task? I would try finding the four-finger swipe-up or swipe-down in the default configuration and edit the action associated with the gesture, just pick the opposite direction for each gesture. I'm sure you ...

Inverted scrolling

As much as I find the idea of the "natural" scrolling that's part of OS X Lion to be very odd, I think I would like to give it a try. Does anyone have a suggestion to invert the scroll up/down directions via the MultiTouch Utilities?

Re: Fully working FingerWorks software in a virtual machine

I'd be much happier if I could get the Utilities to work correctly in a VM at work, or even in W7. *sigh* Since I had a little free time this afternoon, I decided to give the VirtualBox VM another try. This time I installed VirtualBox on my work MacBook Pro (that already has VMware Fusion installed...

Re: Fully working FingerWorks software in a virtual machine

So, as an update to this, I had no real luck getting an XP VM under Oracle VirtualBox to update my MacNTouch I have at work. The biggest hurdle I had was trying to get XP to correctly load the DFU driver. I don't know why it wasn't loading on its own. I was eventually able to get the DFU driver to l...

Re: Fully working FingerWorks software in a virtual machine

Man, this is such a pain to even get to the point where I could attempt to try to see if FingerWorks software will even see the keyboard. I couldn't figure out how to get VMware Fusion to grab the USB device for the keyboard.

Re: For Sale: FingerWorks TouchStream LP

I am interested in getting a TE keyboard, but at this time, they still have not opened up orders to "regular" folk. Of course, the programmability aspect of the keyboard is what interests me the most, but that functionality is not yet available, it seems. (I'd want to have a Dvorak layout ...

Re: Trouble with my TS LP

Back when I was learning Dvorak, as I said above, I had cut out little P-Touch stickers of the alphabet and the changed symbols. After I learned the alphabet, I removed most of the stickers because I didn't need them anymore (and they were already coming off), but I kept most of the symbols is the u...

Re: Trouble with my TS LP

One of the things that I did while learning to type Dvorak on my Touchstream was to print out the alphabet and some symbols from a Brother P-Touch labeler, cut down each letter to small square and then stick them to one of the corners of each square. I actually did this to a few different keyboards ...
