When your eyes are open are you looking at the keyboard?

Whether or not she's looking at the keyboard is irrelevant. By closing her eyes, she is cutting out her visual stimuli. My guess is that it causes her to second guess herself. By closing her eyes, she is trusting her sense of touch to tell her where the correct keys are.

Just stop. stop, stop, stop. Wood does not mesh well with metal and plastic... want proof?...

I'm typing on my keyboard in the dark, on blank top caps, and the LEDs off, and therefore not looking at the keyboard at all as I type. Same effect?

So.... touch-typing?

I found this on google, something like this.

Unless you have access to a CNC router, that kind of a case would be difficult to make well. Given the apparent tolerances of the case, that appears to be what happened there. If you don't have access to one, you'd either have to hand route the cutouts or cut them with a scroll saw and clean up the inside with a sanding block and/or files and rasps. Then you'd have to go in with a razor blade and chisels and carefully hollow out the inside of the case to the appropriate width and depth for the PCB and plate. I suppose you could also route the inside of the case, then find a laser cutter for the cutouts. All my cases have been drop in cases since they're much easier to do with the tools available to me.

That has more to do with the atrocious design aesthetics and color choices of the era.

That is what I was thinking, I would be rather hard to get the bottom piece right with how exactly the keyboard sits inside of it.

No, i haven't looked at the keyboard in years. except for commas and periods, can never remember that location. its so odd. But it's whatevs. I can always hit the period without fail.

i can feel my hands moving quite a bit faster. the sound is faster too so i know my fingers are moving a lot faster. Im also making only one mistake per 10~15 words now. While my eys are closed i some how can type a lot better and s i can even make some corections blind that i know i made.


This is so darn wierd. i can tell when i've made a mistake and can even instictively correct it too. I don't catch all of them though.

Exactly. In human beings, sight is our primary sense. By not using your eyes as a source of sensory information, you are forced to rely on other senses. In the case of the keyboard, it's your sense of touch. It's the same as when people subconsciously close their eyes when they smell something that is appealing. It allows them to enjoy the aroma more.
