Has anyone used a good tether-free / large-item-free input method?<br>
<br>
The closest I know is that RyanC's used Twiddler2[1] and seems to<br>
somewhat like it.<br>
<br>
My preference is for something that'd let me keep a fairly high input<br>
speed after reasonable training[2], but that could be part of some<br>
low-profile worn computing setup like I mentioned a little while ago.<br>
<br>
In my futuristic ideal design sense, this'd be a mostly-cloth glove<br>
that lets me program arbitrary virtual keys in 3d space (with<br>
arbitrary chord to output mappings[3]), and haptic feedback of some<br>
sort integrated. Something that Inspector Heinrich Runge from Monster<br>
would use.<br>
<br>
But I doubt such a device exist IRL right now. So what's the closest?<br>
Is this within feasible reach for a project?<br>
