Mountain View, CA - 16 November
2005. Popular Science announced that the Ergodex DX1, the first
in a new category of input device that features movable programmable
keys, has won Popular Science's 2005 Best of What's New Award, in
the computing category. The DX1 consists of a Pad on which you place
Keys anywhere you want and then you tell the computer what you want
the Keys to do.
DX1 Keys can be assigned to match a single keyboard key, such as
the letter "a", or to perform a more complex macro containing
a series of keystrokes. The Keys are also "application"
aware, so that as the user changes from, say, email to Photoshop,
the Keys automatically change to the macros for Photoshop. Even
though the keys contain advanced electronics, they have no batteries
and no wires; they communicate wirelessly with the DX1 pad.
DX1 Keys attach to the DX1 Pad with Ergodex' "Molecular Velcro",
an inexhaustible adhesive that allows a key, once set on the Pad,
to adhere tightly. A slight twist loosens the Key from the Pad so
that the Key can be moved or micro-positioned for optimal placement.
"What a terrific honor. Little innovation has occurred in the
tactile part of the user interface since the development of the
mouse, more than 25 years ago. DX1 technology opens a whole new
level of convenience and power for people," said Ergodex CEO
Larry Kelly. "For Popular Science to place it in the same league
as the Ferrari F430, the Nokia N90/91 phones, the Mars Reconn Orbiter,
and the Cell chip, among others, is indicative of the impact that
the DX1 delivers for its users."
Best of What's New is the ultimate Popular Science accolade,
representing a year's worth of work evaluating thousands of products,
says Mark Jannot, editor of Popular Science. These awards
honor innovations that not only influence the way we live today,
but that change the way we think about the future.
"During the development of the Ergodex Sensory Platform (ESP)
on which the DX1 is based, we prototyped several different technologies
to get exactly the right match of performance, fidelity, convenience,
power, and reliability," said Scott Rix, CTO of Ergodex. Some
have referred to the DX1 as "the closest thing, other than
using one's mind, to working with a PC".
The DX1 has already found its way into four markets: knowledge workers,
such as Photoshop or CAD users, who use complex software for several
hours a day to turn ideas into new products or services; "fast
twitch" applications, such as PC gaming and financial securities
trading, where speed and reaction time are important along with
having complex functionality available on a single keypress; IT
applications, e.g., SAP or Oracle applications, where difficult
or hard-to-remember or repetitive operations can be combined on
a single key; and health care and assistive technology where, for
physical or neurological reasons, use of a standard keyboard is
cumbersome, or even painful.
