One-handed keyboard

There was a time when I really wanted a pocket computer with some kind of chording/one-handed keyboard. Now someone has come up with a solution that doesn't require relearning how to type. When you hold down the space bar on this keyboard, you get the letters from the other side of the keyboard. For example, to generate an H with your left hand, you hold down space and hit the G key..which uses the pointer finger. Same finger, different hand. It's not that hard to do.

Has a great use for folks with a missing or injured hand...and they sell a half-keyboard version too. The interesting thing here is that the full keyboard can be used normally as well. You could also use it for carpal tunnel reasons....switching from two-hand to one-hand typing at any time.
