Hi all,

Thanks for sharing these articles. I came across a few interesting alternative physical inputs on my research on alternative keyboards. But the most interesting one to me was Maky Maky (http://www.makeymakey.com/) which lets you make your own keyboard, and gives the ability to create anything into a key. I wonder what you guys think about this, and if remapping and creating your own keyboard would be the solution.

Tona,

That is great, thanks. But what was of interest to me, at least, was the mention of "alternative keyboards" -- now that I've begun to casually explore "remapping" mine (QWERTY is really so inefficient for me). I've tried Dvorak, years ago, and it didn't click for whatever reason. I'm thinking I wasn't in the right head space to switch. But ever since reading Blake "Watson's post More efficient typing with the Chubon keyboard layout" <http://www.ihatestairs.org/2013/01/more-efficient-typing-with-the-chubon-keyboard-layout/> I've been really contemplating the switch. More food for thought. Interesting times. Thanks.

Hi all,

Today's FastCoDesign contains an interesting article about Flesky<http://fleksy.com/>, a new keyboard app that efficiently corrects typing errors. I've thought it can be inspiring for us:
