A binary keyboard with just two keys: 0 and 1. The keyboard would be normal size, but each key would take up half of it. This would be great for people with missing fingers/hands, as you could "type" in a sort of drumming motion. A laminated paper sheet listing binary to ascii conversions would be included.

       A telegraph key is essentially a one key keyboard. Morse code is binary.

       Isn't morse code ternary? It consists of dots, dashes, and spaces. Two letter spaces might equal one word space, but you still need a "space" button along with the dot and dash buttons.

       Clearly not, duh.

       [phundug] - it was not so clear to me because I do not know much about Morse. Check the link. It turns out that it is all about timing - the space between words is 5x the space of a "dot" in a letter. Essentially a series of 0s to punctuate as you say.

       I've got to vote against it as an idea... but that was hilarious.
