Simplesty possible keyboard
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.
One Key Keyboard
I think this one beats yours for simplicity. [DrCurry, Dec 09 2005]

||"Clickity- clickty- clickity....WHOOPS. I made a mistake. Does anyone know the code for DELETE?"
||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.
||[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.
