WristPC - Excerpts from Customer Support

Question: Is your WristPC keyboard waterproof?

Answer: The keyboard illumination is adjusted by engaging NUM-LOCK and pressing the UP-ARROW key for increased brightness and the DN-ARROW key for decreased brightness.

Question: My WristPC does not work correctly with my IBM Thinkpad. It works OK on my other computers.
Answer: You need a PS2 Mouse-Keyboard Y Adapter. IBM sells this as part number 54G0441. L3 Systems also sells one. It is part number CL0012.
