orbiTouch to release new products
Wireless and tablet products will debut first quarter of 2012
orbiTouch Wireless resembles it’s predecessor, the original orbiTouch, on all levels except one--we’ve eliminated the cord. Through listening to customer feedback, we’ve been able to create an orbiTouch that is wireless, efficient, and powerful. orbiTouch Wireless is battery powered and works with a wireless USB receiver.
Benefits of orbiTouch wireless
Increased flexibility and mobility: Users are no longer confined to cord length. The new orbiTouch wireless can even be mounted onto a wheelchair.
Increased comfort: Not only does orbiTouch’s unique design take the pain out of typing, but the user can now recline in their favorite chair and use a computer comfortably from anywhere in the room.
orbiTouch for Tablets
Within recent years, tablets from Apple and Motorola have increased in popularity due to their convenient size and practicality. To adapt to growing consumer demand, orbiTouch has developed software that allows the consumer to use orbiTouch typing on their tablet screen.
Once the software is downloaded onto the tablet, typing is accomplished by using thumbs on the far left and right sides of the tablet screen and moving them in the same direction combinations as with the original orbiTouch. Because this typing method requires the user to use only their thumbs, one never has to put the tablet down to type. He or she can hold their tablet in their hands at all times, which makes surfing the web and note taking easier than ever. An orbiTouch application for Android will be debuted first, followed by an iPad application in the second quarter of 2012.
By specializing in products that make technology more accessible and user-friendly for all, orbiTouch has been able to help persons with disabilities become more connected, productive, and engaged. We hope by offering alternatives to the standard keyboard, more people will have access to technology and hopefully, a better quality of life.
