As you may have figured out by now, our new computer keyboard has a mouse placed in the space bar. The cursor action is called the Falcon™, and this Bluetooth keyboard can be synced with three other components at the same time. This provides quick switching from a PC to a smart phone, or to a tablet.
A new computer keyboard has come onto the market where the mouse has been placed in the space bar, allowing for easy use by either a right-handed or left-handed operator.
Even though only 7-10 percent of the population is left-handed, it is not easy for those whose job requires a lot of computer keyboard operation. Simple things like door knobs on the right side, writing from left to right, numeric keyboard pad on the right, and using scissors are just a few of the obstacles a left-handed person has to overcome. But let’s not forget that being left-handed can still be viewed as “hip” — five of the last seven presidents were left-handed. And, did you know that August 13 is Left Handers Day?

Last week we began a review of the Beta Test results and reviews for the Falcon™ Bluetooth Keyboard. Part I provided an overall summary, and Part II presented a few individual tester’s comments. This Part 3 concludes with the final group of individual tester’s comments.
The falcon™ is a multi-platform keyboard. It is compatible with any Bluetooth capable tablet, smart phone, laptop, or desktop computer. It provides a keyboard with a thumb-controlled cursor on the space bar, or “optical mouse”, and cursor activation keys under the fingertips of the computer operator’s hands.
The optical mouse that Falcon Keyboard has developed and beta tested is defined as the optical system including the activation keys for manipulating the cursor. While the Falcon keyboard has many unique features, the optical mouse can be incorporated in essentially any keyboard, and replace the need for a mouse or trackpad.
Those who spend a major part of their time operating a computer find it very useful to master the keyboard shortcuts that the various operating systems have provided. These key combinations replace time reaching for the mouse to click and pull-down menus, to be more efficient. While these shortcuts really can help, they don’t always work in all applications since their availability is dependent on the software developer building them into their product. Some shortcuts are also hardware limited and may not be available on all keyboards.
Nevertheless, if they are available, they are tremendously useful.
