There isn't much more to add to what already has been said. I highly recommend Hammerhead to anyone who appreciates a well-written, action-packed novel....Read more
At first I was having a tough time installing the Glove's software like the previous reviewer here, but because of a security update for .Net 4.0. I had to uninstall .Net 4, then re-install and turn off automatic Windows Update, which tries to sneak that security update in. Please note that there are also TWO versions of .Net 4.0, a client and a standalone. Get the standalone.
Just check out the support discussion groups at theperegrine.com. There's answers there.
It is nice because you can carry out those pesky far-to-reach key presses with a thumb to finger tap.
This is, to me, especially useful while playing strategy games where I assigned unit build orders of my favorite units to a thumb-to-index finger 'gesture'. All i have to do is tap repeatedly to queue up my unit production.
If you play strategies like Spacecraft, or Command & Conquer, you know what I'm talking about.
Not very useful for FPS though, as it does dramatically decrease the tactile sense of your keyboard. While playing FPS's I kept hitting wrong keys as I'm a WSAD player, thus the 4 stars.
Perhaps future versions will have thin rubber finger tip pads, we'll see.
Aside from the slippery finger tips, your key customization options are very broad with 18 key assignments for thumb-tip taps, 18 for thumb-pad taps, and 4 for finger-tip to palm taps, giving a total of 36 distinct commands.
As of yet, macro commands are not available yet. Software does support ctrl + 'key' commands.
Keep in mind, this DOES NOT REPLACE a keyboard, just brings some keys closer.
