Thread: WTB: 'couch keyboard'

  1. WTB: 'couch keyboard'

    I'm looking for a keyboard to be used with my VMS systems and my PC from
    a relaxed position on a couch and so I seem to need a

    * (DEC LK similar/identical) keyboard with US layout
    * wireless (RF or BT)
    * keypad (integrated or plugged in on right side) with separated minus/comma
    (I saw a TARGUS USB keypad having such extra keys)
    alternatively a USB keypad plugging into the wireless desktop/keyboard
    * integrated pointer device (touchpad, trackball, stick) with 3 buttons
    (or else how to use a real mouse on the couch/trousers/what else?)
    * no host configuration program required
    (or else how would this work with a VMS system?)
    * up to $70 (which seems to be Euro 70.- after import, shockhorror)


    nice to have

    * programmable PF keys
    * lighted keys (for use in the dark)

    It seems, there is no such thing. Biggest problem seem to be either mouse
    (with a real mouse this would cost about 30.-) or keypad (wireless notebook
    keyboard seem to cost around 100.-) or only 2 button mice.
    I haven't seen anything so far, where only the price is the problem...

    Do you have any idea? What do you use?

    TIA

    When I had my first PC/AT clone, I made a 25 foot keyboard
    extension cable. It might have violated the specs, but it
    worked pretty well. I don't know about VMS keyboards, though.
