Concept

There has to be an easier way to touch type, we think this is it. We have eliminated coordination issues by moving the keys onto our fingers. This reduces the mechanical keyboard from over one hundred keys, down to only ten, one for each finger. Your hands don’t need to move around over a keyboard, only your fingers need to move. With a single tap or combination press, you have the entire keyboard without moving your hands!

QWERTY Keyboard

It is truly amazing how perfectly ten fingers, with two opposable thumbs, can replicate the Latin alphabet. A single press for ten letters, thumb shift for eight and the other thumb shift for eight, 10 + 8 + 8 = 26! The IN10DID system is based upon the sequence of the alphabet to make it easy to learn.

IN10DID also divides the alphabet more evenly so the abuse on some fingers can be reduced. Common functions and symbols are grouped together in logical categories, using word associations, so that key-press sequences make sense.

The basic structure is commonly known as a “Chord Keyboard” because of the similarity of pressing more than one key to produce a musical “Chord” on an instrument. Other “Chord keyboard” designs have been developed to provide input, some with seven keys, some with twelve, and others with twenty or more. Most of these keyboards were designed for operations using only one hand. Our “chord” system that has been designed to relate to the natural human element of ten fingers for two handed typing, but also may be used one handed. Many experts agree that “chording” is the most efficient way to provide input. We think you will like the way we have narrowed it down.
