Input devices are a very important part of any computer, and some people say that size does matter when it comes to certain components. Take, for instance, monitors: in a recent study I read, it was stated that there were productivity gains to be had because workers using larger monitors can avoid repetitive tasks such as switching between overlapping application windows. The other side of the coin here is that they could easily get unfocused and get sidetracked on such a large monitor with multiple windows open at once.
Then we have input devices like the keyboard and mouse. Without these devices we would not be able to use our machines like we do every day, and until a technology is created that can be used reliably to replace them, they are here to stay. But does size matter here? The average dimensions of a standard keyboard is 18" x 6.5", and of course there are notebook and netbook keyboards which are considerably smaller, yet thousands of people use them on a daily basis. Either way you look at it, size does matter in the world of computing.
Today we we’re looking at the more diminutive side of the equation in this debate. We have a very unique device from VisionTek and it is called the CandyBoard. This little keyboard measures just under six inches long and just over two inches wide. Talk about small. It’s designed as multi-purpose device, but has a specific market segment in mind.
Let’s take a closer look at this tiny input device and see what it can do.
