"Easy Rider" Space Potty? REALLY needs user-friendly ergonomics!

Only time keyboard SHOULD be attached to the screen! Otherwise, typical laptop configuration is undesirable. So if you have an iPad or other tablet computer, the on-screen keyboards are fine for brief use; but for other purposes, get  a keyboard that can be positioned further from the screen.  Being able to easily rearrange your screen and keyboard - and doing so often - is an ergonomic advantage!
"'You know what I think of? I think of Peter Fonda in 'Easy Rider' riding a chopper,' [Astronaut Michael] Massimino said of his preferred space toilet position, holding his arms up to grip the handles of an imaginary motorcycle. 'That's the right position for me.'" - from Space Potty Training Secrets Revealed by Astronauts |
