For those that find it difficult to run a key by hand.

I'd havta brush up on my triple-tonguing technique to keep at my current QRQ, but as an old trumpet player I find this interesting.  

Looks to be a MIDI keyboard's breath control unit, adapted to a keyer?  

Hmm...

In QST, some years back, there was a plan for a breath-controlled paddle.  It was built on a stock "puff and sip" breath-control device for quadraplegics.

There's a standard "puff-and-sip" code, but it's _not_ the same as International Morse Code.

I guess, as a former flutist, I should check this out.  But I have enough trouble with a paddle, and I've promised myself that I'm going to work Straight Key Night with a new (50-year-old) bug.  Enough is enough!

This is a scratch built "air key" that Lee developed on his own. It wasn't a control device of any kind before he started.

I was on a plane the other day, and watched a documentary on computer gaming technology.

instead of a joystick the guy controlled the movements and actions of the game, with a head worn interface.

when his brain said "go left" the head set would switch on an output which controlled the game..and so on.

If only we could get one for dots and dashes...
