Have a little device, that looks like those pulse monitors on exercise equipment, that acts as a mouse. This would prevent you from having to actually place your hand on another physical device other than the keybaord, adn you dont have to clean it. The mouse buttons can be added to the keyboard, so you can wear the device while typing.

       Man! I was thinking something totally different for this one! Glad it wasn't what I _was_ thinking...

       I believe there's also a version in the 'Innovations' catalogue.

       i prefere the light keyboards u can get for pdas what's even better is the eye tracking software they are developing right now

       If you use gestures to control the mouse, you need to be completely free from the keyboard. The computer needs to be completely voice activated, so you don't have to type. Otherwise, every time you type, the sursor would move off-screen.

       Amazing, I had exactly the same idea, just now, and I was going to call it the same name.
