Steel Balls for Hand Exercise

Apparently, amazon has lots steel balls. Get the bigger ones, as hand exercise balls.

possibly, you can also use it as trackball replacement, but i don't think it'll work well, due to the shiney surface.

Logitech MX Ergo Trackball was $100, now $75

hey @xah_lee have you ever tried this logitech? looks like the upgrade to the M570, but im not sure it is worth it anyone else feel free to chime it

it's very good. my friend @AenonSun uses it, and i tried it. i have a page on it but not much info Logitech MX Ergo Trackball i'd say it's one of the top 3, if i'd consider to buy a trackball.

wacom is actually a Japanese company. didn't know that. Now more respect.

do you have updated list of best ergo dream keyboard?

Hi Pablo, happy 2019! this list is probably the best one can get Best Ergonomic Keyboards, Xah Pick as i keep watching the scene. Of that list, take off those don't have tenting. and take off perhaps the Microsoft one, and take off Mistel Barocco (cuz too few keys)

that list doesn't include Do It Yourself ones. cuz too many Do-It-Yourself Keyboards. Also, for those with too few keys, a perfect solution is to add a programable keypad. If one allow that, then Mistel Barocco would also be great.

oh, you mean which characteristics.

i see. i think it depends on each's preference. For me, it's this, more important first

  1. Split hands (1 physical piece is ok)
  2. Tented [see Keyboard Tenting (Wrist Pronation)]
  3. 2 thumb keys per hand. (more is not necessarily better)
  4. Full size physical arrows keys.
  5. Full size physical F1 to F12๏ผŒpage up/down keys.
  6. Driverless programable.
  7. Rectangular grid layout.
  8. Concave like Kinesis/Maltron.
