    04:28 Simply wrong! A 90° rotated (flat) hand with stretched fingers is just not ergonomic from a biological perspective. Looks like TAP only mimics the wide-spread "non-ergonomic mouse" - I consider this a bad decision.

    The fact that you have to tap a hard surface to input keys is sort of a turn off for me. If they ever come out with an updated version that has an option to input keys in mid air then I'll definitely get on board

      Player Slot Available honestly I generally dont choose the conventional ways to play so if it was i would love to play games with this. I could play in more comfortable positions with my mouse and keyboard controlled by one hand

    I literally had this idea like 15 years ago. and its about 90% similar to what is looks like and what it does (mine was a bit more advanced, with more recognized commands and motions, not just tapping, but i bet they will come out with that soon [like a double jointed pinky, which i have, it kinda locks at multiple points, and it could read each one of those locks, etc])

    i mean, having access to your entire keyboard on the same hand as your mouse seems pretty op. i think further testing for gaming applications is required :P

    As someone suggested and another comment; It would be useful for amputees to re-learn a new skill of typing this device. Otherwise it’s a joke

    when you consider the limited number of keys you need for, lets say, gaming.. if you could map that to somehow work with PC gaming to give you more flexibility and comfort over the keyboard, while stilling using a mouse in your left hand.. that would be intriguing.. not at $180 though

    I could see this being seriously useful when combined with VR so you don't have to move back to your desk to type, you could just tap your leg instead!

    SPACE FORCE KID Month ago

    I feel like this could be done using a leap motion controller and you wouldn't have to wear anything on your hand. I would actually learn to use something like this, type with my left, mouse with my right.
