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 your 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.”
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.”
We subject our hands to abuse all day. Gripping, texting, keyboarding, and just every day life puts a lot of stress into our hands making them stiff, tense and tight. . The Twiddler was designed for maximum comfort. The Twiddler’s compact size allows you to rest your hands where you like and text in the most comfortable positions.
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.
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, they 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.
The Twiddler is compatable with every device that supports the Bluetooth HID profile.
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.
Are we forgetting anything? The Twiddler was made with the Internet of Everything in mind.
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 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.
