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.

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.

Mechanical, Silicon Rubber, Bluetooth, Mini, Gaming, Industrial, Military, Medical, Ergonomic, with thumb-pads, trackballs, and with and without numeric pads, are all types of keyboards available to use with your computers, tablets or smart phones.
