2008 10 14 Here is a 28-second Youtube video prepared for the Google 10^100 idea contest. Those below are much older.
Here are two very bad movies, each 19 seconds long and each a little
less than a megabyte in size.
"Standing" shows the keyboard better but not the monitor.
"Sitting" shows the screen. Subtracting
out the time spent picking up the keyboard, 7 words are typed in 14
seconds on the original,
uncompressed version: about 30 wpm. I normally type a little
faster than that (33 wpm) but not while
In Standing it can be noticed
that after I have taken the keyboard in hand I briefly use the free
hand to adjust the top brace. This adjustment is peculiar to my
prototype and would not be necessary on a manufactured unit. The
prototype doesn't have a proper ball joint for the pad -- instead it
has a wire hook that loosely engages an oversized hole on the back of
the pad. This allows pivoting in all directions as desired but it
often tends to catch and lock in a shifted position when first seated
