  1. That is a neat idea. With two gloves, that makes 14 keys. By singling out the least popular words in the alphabet you could replace your normal keyboard and appear to be bad at grammar when you write emails!

  2. Does anybody know what the material is that is used for the base of the keyboard? The link is light on details, just has a bunch of pictures. They show what looks to be a sheet of plastic put into hot water, and then molded around the hand. What is that stuff?

  3. The four finger buttons plus one of the thumb buttons counting in binary gives you thirty possible combinations. That is more than enough for the alphabet. I’d like some more info on the material used for the base and how it is used.
