Treadputer Upgrade

Apr 29, 2006

We made some ergonomic upgrades to the Treadputer this week.

The main changes, compared to the last iteration, are:

  • Mounted speakers
  • Angled keyboard and mouse holder (the angle is very important)
  • Much better stabilization for keyboard / mouse

We are still working on the headphone / microphone configuration.   Getting this right has proven to be a lot harder than we expected due to ambient noise, weight (it sucks to have real headphones on for two hours while you are running / walking), and modality (speakers and microphones don’t mix that well.)  It’s also time to put a better desktop background on those pretty monitors.
