Datahand Pro II on ebay....buy at $750
« on: Sun, 11 December 2011, 03:26:54 »
http://www.ebay.com/itm/300635836549?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1423.l2649#ht_500wt_1413

It's a Personal with the upgrade chip making it a Professional II.

EDIT- The BIN of $750 is now gone. I'm curious to see if a Persoonal that's upgraded to a Pro II (absolutely no difference, it's a user plugged in chip) will sell for the insanely high prices we've seen recently. My guess is no. But also, maybe without pics of the boxes and misc, that will lower the price offered, and maybe the uber-high price cycle is swinging in the other direction for a bit.

FYI, there's a new datahand listed on ebay, starting at $1: https://www.ebay.com/itm/DataHand-Personal-Ergonomic-Keyboard-in-excellent-condition-with-LapLander-/112822942199

Full disclosure: I'm the seller.

You would do better to put that under user auctions, but that's pretty cool. Not something you see every day.

Aha! I had no idea there's such a thing as "user auctions". I only thought there are classifieds, and for that I don't have the post limit (long time luker, not many posts).

Btw, about the keyboard:

I had my warehouse guy test the datahand and I can now claim that all the keys work as expected. Details on the auction page.

I notice they made one-handed versions of these, too. Now that makes sense... I always wondered how people could do online sex chats when both of their hands were needed for typing.

I think that one is only the right hand, but there's supposed to be a left hand as well to go with it.  Those first generation ones like that actually require a large grey box that both "hands" plug into and even requires an AC adapter.  Won't be able to do much with that without some heavy hardware level conversion unfortunately.

Then if we can combine everything into one hand, this may be a tremendous business opportunity! You know, one whose time has, er, come.

FYI, selling second (and last) datahand: https://www.ebay.com/itm/113008725848

Unfortunately I can't find a way to post it to user auctions. Maybe I have too low post count? Sigh, not a spammer, though.

Whenever I think of "hand" in association with computers, I think about porn. I guess it's just me.

I consider them as much more than that. For instance, they allow me to buy contraband on the dark web.
