Actually this was the idea for which I was on hb this
morning, but got sidetracked, forgot it and wrote two
other stupid ideas.
Pangrams are sentences like:
O! Y G ST! PJ 404? C in Ur DK VW B4!! L! 2Ez /
2m2h? - 411 FAQ! 10x
Or: The quick brown fox jumped over the lazy dog.
idea is that you make continuous triangles to write
the words. So to write the quick fox you start in the
right corner 3:30 T, and move your hand over the
"mouse pad" circle, down left to 8:00 H up, just over
the corner 12:30 E,
4 Q, 8:30 U, 1 I, 5:30 C, 10 K
2:30 B, 7 R, 11:30 o, 4 w, 8:30 n
I suppose after writing a few words with this, it would
be extremely speedy. letters that are not usually used
can be lumped together, and maybe also be a bit
further out, so you have to be more careful , and
common letters could have a larger "hit space" so that
you can quickly write "sloppily".
||Just to make sure I'm on the right track: Are you suggesting that instead of arranged in three rows, the letter keys be arranged in a large circle?
||No keyboard, just a touchpad. The letters are arranged
in a circle. So most words have easy to remember
shapes and tilts.
||This is halfbakery, so the other half still has to be fine
||If you could cut that down to this "weird, strange, boring, tea, it's raining, seemed like a good idea at the time, bugger" you'd have virtually all you need for a British English keyboard..
||//The quick brown fox jumped over the lazy dog.// - a sentence which doesn't contain the letter "s". Are you sure you didn't mean "Jackdaws love my big sphinx of quartz"?
||We first read this as "Pagan keyboard"
