Kinesis!




I just switched to a kinesis advantage pro keyboard. This thing is taking some slow getting used to, which is a good reason to blog. Besides the obviously uniquely shaped contour of the keyboard, it comes with internal memory that lets you remap any of the keys to other functions or keys. For me the most important feature is that all of the keys that I used to press using my pinkies such as cntl or enter are now pressed by my thumb, a much stronger finger. I may eventually go even further with this and add a foot pedal for cntl or something.

Kinesis also sells the evoluent vertical mouse which I tried for awhile and did not like in the least, but some people swear by it. What other good ergo-toys are out there that you've tried?
