We make a new batch of Twiddlers every day. There are a few that don't pass inspection because of a bit of glue squeeze out, a spot of adhesive on the back plastics, a minor scratch in the soft touch overspray or Picky Pete in QC finding cosmetic flaws that no one else could see but just won't pass inspection.
So here they are, these fully functioning Twiddlers have some sort of cosmetic blemish on them. They have full warranty and are offered at a big discount solely because of the blemish(s).
We don't have a lot of them. We don't intend to make any more, but, if we do, we'll post them here. If they are out of stock, just add one to your Wish List and check back often. These go very quickly.
So, welcome to this page! You are here because you are looking for a great deal on a Twiddler3 and this is it. Just click on the Add To Cart button above and get ready to become the alpha geek in your group of friends.
The world’s most mobile keyboard
Light. Mobile. Versatile. The Twiddler is so comfortable to hold and easy to use, you’ll almost forget it’s there.
The contoured, sleek modern design doesn’t just look good, it was built for the human hand, putting all the functions of keyboard and mouse within the normal range of motion of your fingers and thumb. It is the worlds best one handed keyboard.
The Twiddler was designed by San Francisco’s Kicker Studio, a world-renowned collective of designers, researchers, scientists and artists that specialize in NUI, or “Natural User Interface.”
Maximum Convenience and Customization
Kicker designed the user interface for ease of use, while the hardware inside maximizes convenience and customization.
It incorporates a keyboard that is radically unique - an ergonomic keypad designed for "chord" keying, where you press one or more keys at a time like playing a piano. With 12 finger keys and 4 thumb keys, the Twiddler easily emulates the 101 keys of a standard keyboard... plus many more.
It also includes a “NavStick” or multifunction mouse controller that moves your on screen cursor. Its Bluetooth capability allows you to pair the Twiddler with all of your devices including gadgets like iPad, any smartphone and any wearable like the Google Glass and the Samsung Gear.
“We designed a highly intuitive and compelling digital interface. It makes the Twiddler both simple and sophisticated.”
Designed for the Human Hand
Where traditional keyboards force our hands, wrists and fingers into unnatural positions, the Twiddler was designed for maximum comfort. The Twiddler’s compact size allows you to rest your hands where you like.
The compact design minimizes hand movement and strain on the wrists, while promoting the use of finger movement. This is ideal for people with low range of motion in their hands. Studies have found many people suffering from arthritis and carpal tunnel syndrome find the Twiddler much easier to use than traditional keyboards.
A Wearable’s Wingman
We’re at the start of a wearable revolution. As smartwatches, glasses and bracelets become more popular, how we interact with those devices becomes increasingly important.
When Google released the Glass last year, it had one eye on the Twiddler and asked us to refine and redesign it as a wireless device. They came with a list of specs that needed to be introduced to the Twiddler’s UI and the Twiddler 3 was born.
The Twiddler lets you type and navigate faster on your mobile phone, tablet, or wearable without the hindrance of a bulky traditional keyboard. Perfect when you’re away from the office or on your morning commute, the Twiddler can increase your productivity like never before.
Google identified the Twiddler as a potential partner device for Google Glass so we redesigned it specifically with that in mind. It’s easy to see why. The Twiddler makes it easy to enter data wirelessly without having to tap the temple of your Glass or use awkward voice commands in public. Google is constantly updating the Glass OS and we expect a future update will allow the devices to be paired.
Smartphones and Tablets
The Internet is full of “autocorrect” memes for a reason. The Twiddler gives you a lightweight portable keyboard wherever you need it.
Samsung Gear and the Apple Watch are expected to lead a wave of new smartwatches. Bring them to life with the Twiddler.
… and everything else
Are we forgetting anything? The Twiddler was made with the Internet of Everything in mind.
How to Use the Twiddler
Striking a Chord
The Twiddler’s one–handed keyboard offers rapid mobile text entry on any device with Bluetooth. Using chords of keystrokes, it does all the work of a standard computer keyboard with only 16 keys.
On a piano you can play a single note by striking one key or you can play a chord by striking a number of keys at once. The Twiddler works in a similar way.
Using a combination of single keystrokes and chords, you can type all the letters, characters, symbols and commands found on a standard keyboard. The Twiddler offers you more than 1,000 programmable chords in multiple languages. You can even customize your Twiddler by creating chords.
The Twiddler Typing Tutor
As fast as a quick brown fox…
The Typing Tutor allows the user to learn the 16 key system of the Twiddler incredibly quickly, making dreaded data entry easy to accomplish. You can change the keys to suit your needs and store blocks of text that can be typed with a single chord. With basic chording codes the average person can type up to 30 wpm, however the fully customizable keyboard can allow the user to achieve typing speeds of up to 260 wpm.
There are twelve keys on the front of the Twiddler arranged in three columns and four rows. Each of your fingers is assigned to a specific row of three keys across. The Twiddler generates characters by the release rather than the initial press of a key so you do not have to worry about whether you have pressed all the keys in a chord at exactly the same instant.
