Torben Gundtofte-Bruun from Copenhagen, Denmark

I might as well start out by introducing myself:
Torben Gundtofte-Bruun from Copenhagen, Denmark

I'm probably one of the newest FW customers, because I got my FW TS in late February 2005. Not a lot of people can have gotten FW products much later than that...

I'm the one who created this http://fingerfans.dreamhosters.com website, but I hope that many others will contribute to make this become a valuable resource for all those FW customers that would otherwise be let down by the apparent closure of the FW company.

Welcome, all!

Hi,

I picked up my LP...wow I can't even remember the days before I had it ;)

Probably no later than 2003. I'm a developer by trade and love these things more than I can say. If new ones remain unavailable I'm going to have to pick up some electronics chops to make sure I can refurbish this thing indefinately.

My thanks as well to Torben for taking the effort to give the community a way to stick together.

Update after four months of zero-force typing

I thought I'd write a short summary of how I'm doing with my TouchStream keyboard, now that I've used it for four months.

On typing:
I'm still not up to my usual writing speed, and I don't think I ever will be. The lack of tactile feedback slows my typing and reduces my accuracy. I hit wrong keys more often than on a normal mechanical keyboard, and I use the handy backspace a lot. My typing speed is maybe at 85% of what I used to, but the missing 15% are more than made up for with the ease and comfort of the many gestures and not having to reach for the mouse.

I've placed a lot of text fragments and codes on the Symbol Pad and done a few modifications to the key layout, but that's about it.

On general usage and gestures:
On a mechanical keyboard, I can use keyboard shortcuts much quicker than on the TS, but they are made obsolete by the many gestures and by the fact that I don't have to reach for the mouse. Now it's often faster to gesture and use the mouse, simply because it's right under my fingertips.

I haven't modified or invented any new gestures -- I still find the gesture editing somewhat puzzling, but then again I don't really feel the need to change or add any gestures anyway.

Transporting the TS:
I'm mostly using my TS at work. I don't often bother to take it home with me, and I don't spend that much time in front of the computer at home. But when I do use the home computer, oh how I miss the gestures! So when I know that I'll be doing stuff after work, I will pack up my TS and bring it home.

I've cut out a piece of a 10mm rubber-foam sheet that I can place on the right half of the TS, coil up the cable in the middle, and close the left TS over it as a lid - then secure with a simple rubber band. This serves as a simple and effective travel protection for the TS's surface and cable.


All in all, I am very happy with the TS and I would sorely miss it if it were to break.

Because the FW site seems to become unreliable, I am investing some time and effort in establishing this new user community. It is my hope to offer the users a new place to support their common interest in zero-force input devices and FW products in particular.

Moved to Vienna, Austria
