Brad sent a pointer to the DX1 Input System , a very interesting looking keyboard that allows the buttons to me moved. This could be nice for a variety of ET applications.
Tom Elliott sent this link to an article in Directions Magazine on Emerging GIS Technology and Accessibility: Online Mapping for Everyone .
Steve Lee sent a link to a head-pointer survey .
I was talking with Steve Lee about the lack of tactile feedback in our simple video switch. We could play an audio click or even vibrate something like one of the haptic mice that were popular a few years ago. For many users making the switch target tactually interesting will be important.
