Voice to text software is just too inaccurate and there are times when you just have to tweet that you've slammed your thumb in a door and broken a heel whilst standing in line holding a shopping basket.

There might be more practical applications too.

Dits and Dahs customisable.

       Dit = .
Dah = -
Doo = ?

       Doo = .   

       Dah = -   

       Dit = space

       This could make scatting relevant again.

       I thought you'd need three sounds: one for a dit (.), one for a dah (-) and another for gaps between characters and words. So three doo's for a short gap between letters and seven for a long gap between words, if you were to conform to Morse standards. But come to think of it, one doo would do for a short gap and two doo's would do for a long gap.   

       They would be customisable though, so you could choose three sounds easily distinguishable by voice recognition software. Tum, Tiddledy and Doo would do too.

       Could this signal be encapsulated in a sealable glass receptacle?

       It might fall out each time you inhale.

       Important new standards (such as this one) should always reference established practice.

       This would be the perfect UI for an Arduino LilyPad <see link>.

       Lilypad, phphphphphhff. Real men wear S100 backplanes.
