Envision the fingers of a stationary, supported hand moving north, south, east, west, and straight down around their at-rest position. This vision gives an idea about how the keys on the DataHand ergonomic keyboard are operated. A DataHand user's fingers move less than half an inch in each direction.

The DataHand key assignment display is above the fingers, always visible, never covered by the fingers. Each of the modes is differentiated on the display by a different color: green for Normal (alphabetic) mode, blue for Numbers and Symbols mode, yellow for Function and Mouse mode, and red for Ten-key mode.

Each dome moves "slides" into one of eight positions from a central resting point; It may be helpful to think of these dome movements in a compass arrangement: N, NE, E, SE, S, SW, W, NW. Each dome is capable of sliding into the same eight compass directions.
