    seems interesting... http://alphagrips.com/ I don't think you have to be a model to use it, but I'm not entirely sure.

      You probably do if you want one of the pink ones.
      "IMPORTANT INFORMATION: The AlphaGrip may not be ergonomic" it says here.
      You know what's weird? It claims to be "Enhanced QWERTY", and sure enough, if you squint at the buttons, it still is kind-of QWERTY, which itself is thoroughly unergonomic. What's all that about?

      don't have to be a model to use this one, but you need breasts : http://www.statesman.com/business/content/business/stories/t echnology/12/16bizfocus.html

      I think the rationale is that using this device won't hurt your ability to use a regular QWERTY keyboard, which is something that has plagued users of other alternative input schemes such as the dvorak keyboard layout.

      The wired jock strap is coming soon, don't worry.
      Talking about Wired, they have someone who writes about (please delete this message immediately if you're under age in the jurisdiction of your residence) "teledildonics". You may want to look that up. Or not.
      As for QWERTY not being ergonomic, I'm not sure where Nick's coming from on that. Sholes' invention was (despite some legend to the contrary) designed to allow people to type faster with the hardware of the day, and his design achieved what it set out to do. What's wrong with that? I learned to touch type when I was too young to read Regina Lynn (and before she was born, for good measure). One of the most useful skills I ever learned.
