2021-07-03 (Sa) Wearable Macro Keyboard BackOfTheHand BotH On the job training

I am developing this project for two big reasons. The first is that I want a convenient wearable keyboard, and even if it isn't suitable for full-fledged typing, I should be able to trigger my most common tasks and activate speech-to-text with a single hand. The second reason is to have some easy-to-use buttons at the ready when I'm working. I often have to hold a screwdriver or multimeter probe, and even a small remote controller is cumbersome.

I drove while wearing the remote and discovered that a steel band would drag on a steering wheel. I wore it until the battery died, which was shorter than I would like, but I think settings to turn off the screen and Bluetooth, hibernation mode, would extend it considerably.

The biggest problem that I had was unexpected layer changes. A while ago, I set up a macro on my work computer to change PLC (programmable logic controller) outputs with the "Volume up" button. I recorded a video where I toggled the output, which triggers a relay. At the start of the video, I am in "Media control," but it switches to "Work macros." Fortunately, the key I was using was in the same place in both modes, but this signal a real issue.
