[FoRK] Walking While Working

Jeffrey Kay <jeff at jeffreykay.com> on Mon Feb 4 10:23:27 PST 2008

I find that I don't jerk around that much.  It's really all about finding
the right speed.  I'm still experimenting with it, ranging from 0.7 mph to 1
mph.  My typing is actually very smooth while walking.  In fact, it's easily
as smooth as when I'm sitting at my desk.  I did find that I sort of rocked
back and forth while when I first got on it, but once I realized I was doing
that, I stopped and everything just sort of "clicked".  

Right now I'm typing this while walking 1 mph and haven't really had any
more difficulty typing than I would if I were seated.

Fascinating. How do you isolate your torso enough to be able to keep
walking and not have to hesitate or jerkily type?
