Geek rigs up one-handed keyboard, and not for the reason you think

One-handed keyboard created by coder

The dude put some ingenuity into the problem and used a few items like Sugru, ShapeLock, and a wireless keyboard to create a system that lets him type on the right side of the keyboard for both right and left-handed keys.


He used an Auto Hotkey program to create a mirror mode for his keyboard that put the keys you would normally hit with your left hand over the keys you would hit with your right hand. This sounds a lot more complex than just buying Dragon Naturally Speaking.
