Don't know of anything off-hand but its got to be possible. This would apply not only to numbers but any field or list. As such it would be extremely useful in lots of ways.

Great idea Lee.

Does this would mean we would have to buy various arm movements and gestures on I-tunes?

Man, what an opportunity, I've applied for copyright and patent on certain arm and hand movements and gestures relating to manipulations of various parts of the anatomy, I'll make a zillion for sure.

Offer of $100 for complete photgraphs and commentary

Sorry folks. due to unnecessary legal demands and wrangling by another party, I have to revoke my offer of $100 for photos and commentary of the dissassembly and interiors of an FW board. Sheesh, you would think it would be such a simple thing: your board is dead, you might want to help out the comm...

Hi jwr, I made the offer of $100 to anybody that does an autopsy of a TS or other FW product and posts the pictures and commentary. You have done it, well, you have started to do it. I commend you. If you will PM me with your contact details, I will forward you the prize. However folks, I am not ind...

Yes, just take as many high quality pictures as you can. 1 gig, 2 gigs, whatever it takes. You might want to talk to jwr and post them to his web page: Inside a TouchStream.

Those aren't alien hands, just look at the frog below for where those hands came from. Aliens indeed, that's just a distraction fobbed on us by the Frog People who will soon take over the Earth and punish us for our wholesale poisoning of their many cousins.

GT - My offer still stands. If you take a good set of digital photos and really take it apart so we can all see the insides clearly, I'll send you $100. But you have to get detailed pictures, lots and lots of them. Like, if you use up a 512K chip, get out another and fill it up. Get the best camera ...

Something to look into?

Saw this somewhere, not sure its any improvement other than it would offer less of an impact when typing. Plus I like the notion of rolling your own.

Not anyone passing by, just clients and friends.

Like I said TP, I've got $100 towards a dead board to be autopsied. It can go for a live board just as well or just a sick one. I know that's not nearly enough but its the best I can do at this time. If the board that gets autopsied is recoverable, so much the better, The $100 is still yours.

There's no question TS has the title for absolute shazamm in input systems. Its simply so far out there most people can't handle it.

Multiple listings - what great bounty!

So, now there are three listings on EBay, all sort of reasonable. Perhaps the frenzy of 'get it, its out of production' has worn off along with the novelty. Like anything good, it takes effort to utilize, the learning curve is steep and most people will never use the real advantage of the boards, th...

QWERTY LP for sale on EBay

Here's a good chance for whomever's looking. Just don't everyone pile on and drive the price sky high. The owner has set a reasonable base price and unless there is a feeding frenzy, someone could get something they NEED (as opposed to would like to resell at a handsome profit) for a reasonable pric...

And for whose benefit did you work so hard? Not sure what this thread is about. Perhaps its a comment on the absurdly high prices being asked for a no-longer-produced (the supply of which is thus artificially limited) product that was a bit high priced to begin with. This could apply to artwork by w...

Anybody ever try the Twiddler, its a palm sized chording device with built-in thumb joystick? I've been following them for years, about the same amount of time as for FW-TS. It too has a serious threshold price (though $200 seems a deal compared to the current $700 to $900 going prices of TS) and wo...

The scene is tense.

I see the cases for the TS are similar, just rotated 180 degrees so the ribbon cable slots face each other, which puts the little notch for the USB cable at the bottom on the left case vs the too on the right case. That just makes it so they only needed a single case mold and would only have to stoc...

If I correctly understand your point, what you are stating is once the gesture has been recognized (ie - 400 ms or for practical purposes, an instant), its only necessary to maintain a single point of contact. If that's your point, its well taken. But I see your observation that many users would fee...

That is certainly one sweet little board, though if you think Fingerworks are a bit orugh on the finances, these little doggies redefine the concept. I don't see much of FW/TS in these beauties (its more object oriented, less gesture based) and the touch mechanism is apparently completely different,...
