This is a new one (Layout is 'numlock' one):
12 keys... tap a key for main function. Drag to any of the other keys
for 11 secondary functions. A total of 12*12=144 combinations.
To much to show... You have to press a key to see the secondary keys.
Drag outside the keyboard to cancel a keypress.
A bit awkward to begin with... might work fast when You learn to know
the most common secondary keys.
Know of no patent jet.
Tap key or drag in any of 8 directions. 9 funktions per key, easier
strokes (bigger end target, butt less functions per key may need to be
compensated with smaller start target). maybe patent encumbered.
Both demos can easily be adjusted between 3x4 to 3x6 keys to test the
feel. I don't know hove easy it is to get a PyGTK demo running on the
phone... and they probably perform horribly. But I would be grateful for
any report on hove easy the keys and strokes are to hit.
